gmenu2x - Terminal
« on: February 08, 2010, 01:24:38 pm »
Hi,

I have set up gmenu2x on my dingoo but the one thing I can get to work is the terminal option, this the option that shows you 15 seconds of Dingux enabling you to check for errors.

Do i need a script or do I point it towards a program?

Thanks

This is my solution from my local pack:

Quote
title=Terminal
description=Check terminal output
icon=skin:icons/terminal.png
exec=/boot/local/gmenu2x/scripts/terminal.sh
clock=336
gamma=100
backlight=100

Quote
#!/bin/sh
sleep 5

Maybe this works too:

title=Terminal
description=Check terminal output
icon=skin:icons/terminal.png
exec=sleep 15
clock=336
gamma=100
backlight=100

Ninja?d  :o
Wondered the same and found it in the dmenu.cfg:
sleep 15
Put that into a file named sleep.sh or something and put it into your local folder. Don?t now if it works in other folders too.

actually, it doesn't need to be "sleep x", this one works better:
Code: [Select]
#!/bin/sh
read keypress
It will wait for you to press START key to return to the menu.

what works better is pressing start, then turning log output on, then once the program has run, go into the log viewer under settings  ;D

Hey...is this something you can add to the .cfg file so that the screen doesn't flash away so quick, and you can actually READ what error it is telling you you have??

Major-league useful if so!!

Please tell me what it is.  I would like to set that up as a menu option to go to see my error message any time I want.  for as long as I want...make it so I have to press a button before the error message goes away.

By the way, I use dmenu 0.6  I know what file to edit and everything...just need to be totally sure of all the right code to put in, and no wrong code.
