(Lots Of Ridiculous Toolbars Using Gtk+)
Lortug is a scriptable toolbar application. What this means
is that you write scripts describing the layout and what you want the toolbars
to do and Lortug creates the toolbars. Generally the toolbar
components run shell commands when activated, but if this were all it did
it wouldn't be too exciting. You can also use the state of various
toolbar components (ie the contents of a text box or whether a toggle button
is up or down) to influence what shell commands are run and what arguments
they use. Lortug used to be known as ControlFreak but the name had to
be changed due to trademark problems.
Lortug requires the following:
Some form of Unix, though it has only been tested on linux (If you get
it to work on another platform I would like to hear
Gtk+ version 1.2 or higher
The current release is 1.0.
Read the INSTALL file in the distribution for more info. The simplest
way to do it is to un-compress the archive file and then do the usual configure/make/make
install. More specifically, type the following at a command line:
The final step will probably require you to be the root user. The
"x.x" should be replaced with the version number for the version that you
tar xvzf lortug-x.x.tar.gz
The documentation for lortug is available online and is contained in the "doc"
directory of the source package. In a nutshell you just have to type
"lortug [script name]" where [script name] is the name of a script
file describing the toolbars you want created (see the documentation
for info on how to write script files). There are also sample
scripts in the "samples" directory of the distribution.
Best case scenario: you fix it and send me a patch. If you don't
want to do this then send a bug-report to me
and I'll see what I can do about fixing it.
Lortug is released under the GPL so you're free to use and
modify it however you see fit as long as you release any changes you make
My name's Brett Hall. I created Lortug because I wanted something
that does what Lortug does, but I couldn't find anything that really
worked the way I wanted it to. I can be reached by email
