Description:

ROX (http://rox.sourceforge.net/) is a lesser known desktop environment with a fixation for drag-and-drop.

This package provides a shell script to download ROX application directories (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Application_directory) and extract them into ~/Apps.

Additionally, the script also creates wrappers for some non-ROX apps that either do not appear in the XDG-Menu or have to be wrapped into application directories so that ROX-Session can autostart them.

Requirements

ROX application directories are best used in ROX Desktop, which Debian/Ubuntu users may install with the ROX Build Debs scripts (http://gtk-apps.org/content/show.php?content=134110). Others may try Zero Install (http://rox.sourceforge.net/desktop/ZeroInstall.html)

If you do not want to install ROX Desktop, you may still run ROX applications from ROX-Filer, the ROX file manager. Most ROX applications require ROX-Lib2, librsvg (librsvg2-common in Debian/Ubuntu) and PyGTK (python-gtk2 in Debian/Ubuntu). Bombz also requires pygame (python-pygame in Debian/Ubuntu), which is not installed with the ROX Build Debs scripts.

How to use them

ROX apps are launched from ROX-Filer: you either click on the application directory or drag a file onto it. True ROX apps do not open files through File/Open.

Do it yourself

The Skype wrapper is distributed without an icon. In ROX-Filer, right-click on the Skype wrapper, select "App dir 'Skype'" and click on Set Icon. Navigate to /usr/share/icons and drag skype.png into the Set Icon window.

Contrary to what you can see in the first screenshot, this script will not get Flock for you. Download it from http://www.flock.com/, extract it into ~/Apps and turn it into a ROX application directory by issuing the following commands in Terminal:

cd ~/Apps/flock
ln -s flock-browser AppRun
ln -s flock-bin AppRun-bin
ln -s icons/mozicon128.png .DirIcon



License:
* The text files are public domain.
* The .DirIcons of the wrappers are GPL 2.0 or later, except utilities-terminal.svg from the Tango icon theme, which is public domain.
* The downloaded appdirs have their own licences.
