First I wanted to fix the default browser problem. I could not setup a PND browser as default.


fine, I realized that I could make a shell script like this


pnd_run /media/BOOT/pandora/menu/midori.pnd


and then set this "default-web.sh" file as the default browser.


so it works, now clicking "Web Browser" in the menu launches midori.


BUT now the problem, If I want to click an HTML file and get it loaded into midori or clivk an AVI and get it into VLC I get nothing but the default app and the file is not handed off.


[default-video.sh]


pnd_run /media/BOOT/pandora/menu/vlc.pnd


Default setting in Thunar on a right-clicked avi has custom launcher set to


/home/USER/bin/default-video.sh


But when clicking an AVI I only get VLC launched without the video passed to it. I even tried adding %1 at the end of the command.


HELP!

That is because pnd_run doesn't pass arguments to the executable in the pnd.


But I don't really know a solution to it.

Hopefully someone has a solution.


Until then, back to the bat-cave...

How is pnd_run implemented? If it is something like a bash script, it probably suffices to add something like $@ where the executable is called.

Gruso solved my problem on this thread in a separate topic I posted on a related matter.


My topic was here:





and his solution is here:


http://pandorawiki.org/Pnd_run.sh


It took some fiddling but I got it working for VLC and Midori. So anyone else asking this can get there answer above.


Anyone able to answer my Repo question can check my other post. I wanted to install apps natively to solve this launching problem. Now that I have a solution to pnds I STILL want to know about the Repo question.
