Regarding binary application invoke on button
« on: August 14, 2008, 03:42:36 pm »
Hi,
Hope you all are doing well.
We have just started customizing the GUI of linuxMCE and we have to attach the konqueror  binary application (object) to one of the Button.
Could you elaborate how to go about for this.

Thanks and Regards,
Milind dere

Be patient and take it easy on the double posts. It is usually considered rude and will likely keep people from wanting to give you the answers you need.

In short, you shouldn't do this.

You can use the App Server to do what you want, (Spawn Application) ...however, it will not be managed by the Orbiter, this is very bad, and typically App Server commands are only used from within other DCE devices.

I suggest starting to look at the code for how Firefox is currently integrated.
