Also added options to hide the main window and just show the terminal when run with args. also added option for it ask to confirm/change output directory on the first file. Haven't tested it f...

Re: pkAppMan, manage pkexec policy file to grant gui superuser access (like GKSU)

Update... Now you can select a file in the list, right click and select to have it create a desktop launcher for you. Uses the /home/username/Desktop/Appname.desktop protocol. Will make either a standalone app Launcher for the selected item, like for running the Gambas3 IDE as root, and will try to ...

Re: Wav2mp3 (using serversocket for app to app control)

It would be nice to be able to double-click the created file and hear the outcome. So be it :) It now adds completed mp3s to a list and has a built in audio player using the Music class. I put in a volume control and would have put in a position control if the blummin music class showed how long an...

Re: pkAppMan, manage pkexec policy file to grant gui superuser access (like GKSU)

If youve added Xed to the list with full path then you should be set. using pkexec to launch Xed? Xed wont launch asking for rights on it's own. It's the policy file for pkexec the program modifies.

Re: Wav2mp3 (using serversocket for app to app control)

Any views on how i've handled the multiple launching issue with the server socket? Re. selecting multiple files from desktop and selecting "Open with wav2mp3" made multiple instances of the app load instead of one with multiple args. I couldn't find any other way , i tried a pipe , but sending text ...

(i feel bad you wasted your time) So it's resizeable now (thanks ...
