??? How will they select which program/server they want to connect
to? They don't run anything on their Mac except start X11 and
select a menu item which ssh'es them into another machine/account
where the 'inventory system', or whatever, resides. Are we all
talking about the same thing?
Just clicking on the X11 icon doesn't get them anywhere. It just
starts X11 and now brings up an xterm which they have no use for,
and in whose Applications menu I can no longer put commands like
ssh -X -Y email@hidden -OR- xterm -geometry
80x50+100+100 -rightbar -sb -bg "black" -fg "yellow" -cr "orange" -
rv -fa Monaco -fs 13 -e ssh -Y email@hidden? How do I
replace that functionality? It's gone or hiding somewhere. I'm
not going to type all of that stuff every time I want to do
something, and having a bunch of scripts/icons laying around to run
each variation of the ssh command to get into different machines is
Why not put a bunch of these one-line scripts in a folder, give them
all the same names as the menus you used to have, and stick that
folder in the Dock?
I KNEW somebody was going to say that. That "stack" business is just
too cute to ignore, eh? :) Let me look at it. It's not so much that
I have to change it's that I have to dodge all of the axes and knives
from the users that have to change. :) Oh, and keep track of which
machine requires what. We have a bunch in the office and a bunch that
go to the field and they get rebuilt every time they come back from
field work and everything has to JUST WORK in places like the
Himalayas and Antarctica, and having to maintain two different ways of
doing something this simple is asking for it. Some machines can go to
Leopard, some have to stay Tiger (for other software from the likes of
equipment manufacturers). Does it sound like whining yet? :) This
just wasn't on the list of 300 improvements.
Do not post admin requests to the list. They will be ignored.
