I'm running mdk10 with KDE and here's basically what i want to do:
right-click on a .torrent file and be able to open a konsole and run it with btdownloadcurses.py. Would also be nice if there would be a prompt to ask for --max_upload_rate .
I have tried to figure out how to add service menus with this LINK
and have come up with this:
create a .desktop file with this inside:
[Desktop Action OpenBTfile]
Exec=btdownloadcurses.py --max_upload_rate 60 %u
1- would it be easier to set up a script (i'm a real newbie and don't have a clue how that would work) to run btdownloadcurses.py --max_upload_rate 60 %u and associate the script with .torrent files so the normal left-clicking would work??
2- If in fact i do run (using one of the above ways) btdownloadcurses.py --max_upload_rate 60 %u, will this leave the konsole window open so that i see the progress or will it run background?
3- Is there an easy way to get prompted for upload speed so that i can throttle the downloads according to how many downloads i'm doing? or should i edit the service menu to put a sub-menu with 3 or so different actions all doing the same thing but with say: 60, 40 and 20 max upload rate?
4- If I would like to use KDocker and dock it all at the same time i open it, I guess i would have to launch the konsole in the Exec line of the .desktop file right? If so the line would look like:
Exec=/bin/konsole <MY COMMANDS HERE>
but how would i separate the commands?? would it be:
/bin/konsole btdownloadcurses.py --max_upload_rate 60 %u ; kdocker konsole
I'm really crap at all this and would definitely appreciate any help you people can offer me. Thanx a lot!
