Title: [E2] AppOrganizer 0.2 - GUI App to add the Apps/Games to Games Menu!
Post by: Atomik88 on August 03, 2007, 10:54:48 PM
AppOrganizer 0.2 released!  (old AppsToMenu 0.1)

This app, now, allows select apps/games showed in Main menu and move it, all in one time, to Games Menu!
It's useful for moments like when we install a new Firmware or when applied a Master Clear/Reset, that leave the games menu in original form, then execute this app (with GUI) and you have all games and apps wanted in games menu!

Newer features in 0.2:
- Menu for select apps/games, and add only the selected apps to games menu.
- Add all apps/games, in SD card and in phone memory.
- Best interface.

Link in E2Mod: http://www.e2mod.com/content/view/224/28/ (http://www.e2mod.com/content/view/224/28/)

P.S.:
* Root permissions recommended;
* It will delete all items in games menu, and add all apps/games selected; the apps unselected don't will be included in games menu, and if installed in sd, the phone will recognize on startup and add to main menu, if installed in phone: if yet in main menu, the app will stay there; if already moved to games menu, will hide, and you will must to execute this again.

And rememembering... This APP is MAINLY for moments AFTER FLASHING, when SD APPS/GAMES STAY ALL IN MAIN MENU!  THIS IS THE ORIGINAL INTENTION!  ANY OTHER USE IS NOT SUPPORTED!

mpkg idea:

GUI app in which you can select applications (with select all function) and move them to listed folders :)

Post by: Atomik88 on August 06, 2007, 03:02:30 PM
OK, I'm very happy with the comments!
I will be studying about these features:
1º: To include the phone apps.
2º: Create a MPKG for the script
3º: And finishing(the more dificult, by the way) include a selection menu for apps, and 'select all' option.

When I finish the 1 and 2 I will upload, after this, I will work in 3.

Thanks for the comments, and I accept more suggests...

Now I want a help:
I already created the mpkg pack, but when I installed it and selected it in menu, it opened and showed all GUI, including final messages, but don't edited the files containing the menu items. And when I open the script (I access the file manager and select the file .lin) works perfectly.
I'm confused with this!

P.S: I'm only waiting the mpkg to work, for release 0.2, with new name, AppOrganizer, with the new 2 features: 1-Include apps in phone ; 2-A apps menu for to select some apps and not all ;

maybe if you post the files here somebody may help... Not sure what may be wrong in your current pack

Post by: Taurnil on August 08, 2007, 06:42:35 PM
that's weird... have you tested your script running it by telnet?
the scripts you run from your file manager runs as EZX user. The mpkg script files may run as root or ezx; try changing the application permissions ^^

good luck

Added: please post your beta-mpkg here, we can take a look on it ;)

Post by: Atomik88 on August 09, 2007, 12:09:47 AM
When you executed the script, you selected all games/apps you wanted, or only Cannons?
Remembering, this script WILL DELETE all items in games menu, and then add ONLY games selected, the games NOT selected don't will be in games menu, the games in sd will be recognized by phone and will be in main menu, the phone games, don't will be in anyone place.
Finally, When Executing This Script, Select ALL APPS/GAMES you want be in games menu, including the apps already in games menu.

This is for to be able to send many apps back again to main menu(the not selected one), case required.
Understand?!

The first thing that takes my attention is that there are no apporganizer.png and apporganizer_small.png

Did you packed with the tar/gzip apps or alternative?

I packed with tar in telnet as explained in tutorial in e2mod.com. It's necessary to include the icons in pack?

You must include the icon file(s) in your package, and update the .desktop file with your icon's name... BigIcon and Icon may be the same file, if you feel lazy ;)
those png files should be 48x48 or similar...

PS: I like your bash/sed skills ^^

Unfortunately I just retry, including the icons in pack, and don't works...  ???

I think it must be something relationed with permissions for applications, must be different of the permissions for scripts. Because the fail is happening when would have to write the result file, to after this, overwrite on UserMenuTree(the file containing the menu items, a system file), the file is not writed and the usermenu is not modified, in mpkg app this is the only thing failing, the everything resting run without errors. Also I am putting the root permissions to mpkg app with MPKG Manager, without effect.

Will be the packing of this script, a impossible thing?  :-[

P.S.: Muchas gracias por los elogios, yo ya soy a programador por diversión desde los 13 años...

Post by: Taurnil on August 11, 2007, 01:34:26 AM
AFAIK, the scripts you run from your file manager runs as EZX user, and mpkgs can run as EZX or ROOT (it depends on the application permissions you give to them, being EZX the default user).
You should check the relative/absolute paths. Maybe that's the bottleneck.  Use another mpkg script as guide ^^

good luck
