_kmh_Supaplex : doing what ?
Supaplex_kmh_: in kde. click the kmenu, then click the 'settings' section, and 'menu editor' should be one of the choices (well, that's what I have)
_kmh_Supaplex : i use that, my problem is it doesn't work
on this installation
Supaplex_kmh_: as in nothing happens when you click on it. you click, menu disappears, nothing runs. right?
does it need to run in a terminal window?
is the shell script executable?
_kmh_Supaplex : yes
Supaplexdoes the shell script have #!/bin/sh as the first line?
do you perfer konsole over xterm?
_kmh_Supaplex : it is executable and just contains a line like : java -jar someapp.jar
and it work fine if i run it in a terminal window
but from Kmenu it doesn't work (neither when entering it under command nor when entering it under run in terminal)
kkathmanyou made the shell executable ?
_kmh_yes
kkathmanwhat are the permissions ?
_kmh_oh what do you mean by shell ? the 1-line-script ?
Supaplexdoes the terminal window appear at all when you click the menu item?
_kmh_or the shell (sh) itsself ?
kkathmanthe script
_kmh_Supaplex : yes it appears and vanishes
kkathmanthe script must be executable and must be allowed for the user to run it
Supaplexput a "sleep 30" at the end of the shell script, and double check the permissions are +x on the script. eg, chmod 755
_kmh_kkathman : well it is owner can read,write and execute
Supaplexthe script might need explicit PATHs in it.
_kmh_group and others are set to read only
nighthawkI followed the guide about installing the ati card on suse 10.2 ( http://en.opensuse.org/ATI ) -- yet, I got two cards installed in my machine and it seems not to work,. how can I configure the setup?
kkathmanin your script - are you making a call to a root only command ?
_kmh_Supaplex : well i have use absolute path to run it
Supaplex : so /home/user/....
kkathmanlike for instance, you write a script to do an fdisk -l you cant, because that requires root access
it might execute the shell command, but not the command inside the shell
_kmh_kkathman : no need for root access it just starts a java app
basically all i want is to execute "java -jar javaapp.jar" and i just put that line in a 1-line script
Supaplex_kmh_: try this to troubleshoot http://rafb.net/p/bD1Nn321.html
_kmh_Supaplex : let me check
what is the which doing ?
Supaplextry 'help which' in your shell.
er, man which
sounds like dinner don't it? ;)
