How do I install a helper?

Asked by Erigami on 2010-09-25

I'm trying to write a helper for AWN but the "Install helper..." button is disabled, which makes testing difficult.

How do install my helper without writing stuff into /usr/share/dockmanager/?

(I'm using AWN 0.4.1-rewrite-bzr743+201009122042)

This is not yet completely implemented, therefore the button is disabled. But you can copy your metadata and script files to ~/.local/share/... (same structure as in the system dir). Afterwards you'll need to kill dockmanager-daemon, and after it's restarted, it should pick up the new helper. (if you'll update the script file afterwards, it should suffice to disable/enable the helper, no need to restart the daemon)

When you say ~/.local/share/... you mean ~/.local/share/dockmanager/ right?

Yes, as I said, exactly the same as in the system dir (so don't forget the metadata and scripts subdirs).

Thanks Michal Hruby, that solved my question.
