Ticket #1165 (closed defect: fixed)
The console-only applications fail to start in terminal from menu
|Reported by:||audriusa@…||Owned by:||mickey@…|
|Blocking:||Estimated Completion (week):|
We are porting the console only application to OpenMoko? and have produced the
normal .ipk installer that creates the icon in the application menu. This
icon, however, fails to start the actual application: after some running (the
process "eye" is rolling) it silently terminates.
The application actually installs with our .ipk file and can be easily started
from the pre-opened terminal by typing its name ('mathomatic'). The
configuration file (mathomatic.desktop) has the flag terminal=true but this
seems not helpful. The configuration file is installed and respected because
the icon is found, loaded and shown.
To reproduce, download the .ipk file from the ommathomatic project and observe
the describe behavior.
I think that the command line support is important to the open source - based
phone. Such applications are less user friendly but they are rather widespread
and may be easier to port.
