Shell Script to start this at startup:


#!/bin/bash

~/metro/*.py

exit                                            


Add this to Startup Applications.

Simple.

Does this work on any Debian/Ubuntu distro like Slacko Puppy Linux?
It took me a little while to figure out how the program was supposed to work, putting in the readme something like: "This application requires PyQt4. The way this program works is it renders a web view application on the desktop background for each python script. Each python script is located in its own folder. To change the behavior of a launcher, edit the link in the corresponding html file. Launcher positioning is defined in the javascript at the end of the html file."
Hi, I made a shell script that starts all the individual python scripts automatically if you place it in the main folder:
#!/bin/sh

for i in * ; do
   if [ -d "$i" ]; then
      cd $i
      ./*.py &
      cd ..
   fi
done

Is this reversible once it is downloaded? I would like to turn it one and off frequently, similar to how you can with the Cairo (mac mimicking) dock.

It doesn't work on Linux Mint 16! Can you make a .deb file for this?

Unfortunately no, this isnt an actual application. Its just a bunch of python files used to create little 'desk-lets' per say.

I tried to do it, but the python code needs to be changed to take the input, and go search google with it, then clear the search bar. (and i have absolutely no idea of how to do that lol)I tried to do it, but the python code needs to be changed to take the input, and go search google with it, then clear the search bar.

Thanks man! btw, i really like your python script..it is so useful. Earlier i was trying to make a google search bar like this but im not that good at python and css coding...you should try to make it, cuz that is something that i would definately use.

Search field is good idea, I can try something, if I have time...
By the way: I am not good at python and html+css coding neither, but it's my hobby.
