View Full Version : KDE Applications in X11

25th March 2006, 10:51 PM
I've recently got kde running and the closest i can get ot opening an application that runs in x11,
is with this script.

set X11APP to "/sw/bin/umbrello"

tell application "Finder"
launch application "X11"
end tell
set results to do shell script "cd ~; DISPLAY=:0.0; export DISPLAY; PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/bin; export PATH&#59;" & X11APP & " > /dev/null 2>&1 &"

But What i'm asking is if i can get it to open an application and it appear in the dock and stay there while its running.

Have a look

This line in my .profile allows me to open X11 apps from Terminal.app.

export DISPLAY=":0.0"

and quick and dirty way to stop the xterm window from appearing was to

sudo chmod 000 /usr/X11R6/bin/xterm

is the xterm window usefull for anything ?
