This is obviously how things should look, but I didn't include aterm as a dep in an attempt to use any other installed terminal..

Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ getFlash_beta.sh
Loading Dependencies
squashfs-tools installed
bash installed
gtk2 installed
nss installed
curl installed

aterm: bad option "Setup,"
aterm: bad option "and"
aterm: bad option "Create"
aterm: bad option "flash_beta.tcz"

Then an aterm usage message.

Seems that at least the  -title  option passed to xterm lost its quotes somewhere.

Depending on the installed terminal,
 cat $(readlink $(which xterm))
should output something similar to
Code: [Select]
aterm "$@"
If  $@  is not quoted, it needs fixing.

/etc/sysconfig/tcedir/ondemand/getFlash_beta
Code: [Select]
ondemand -e getFlash_beta.tcz "$@"
If  $@  is not quoted, it needs fixing by simply recreating the On-Demand entry.
Before 7.2, new ondemand scripts were not created properly with quoted  $@ .

Just tried  getFlash_beta.tcz  from On-Demand menu.
Works here, except that  getFlash_beta.sh  runs twice.
Once issued by the extension's startup script and once by ondemand via *.desktop file, which coreplayer2 knows about. :p

Thane, I assume it's the 32 bit version which is the problem?

Sorry coreplayer2, I've had to deal with some other things. I'll work on this tomorrow. Thanks.

Lots of Flash weirdness...

Updated my .dep files (don't) which appears to have broken getFlash11.tcz.

Unpacked the getFlash_beta.tar.gz file and copied the .tcz and md5.txt files to Optional. Selecting the app from the OnDemand menu seemed to do nothing. Running it from a terminal also seemed to do nothing, not even generating the aterm messages I saw before. The tar also had a getFlash11.tcz.dep file which I tried omitting, tried putting in Optional as is, and tried putting in Optional after renaming to getFlash_beta.tcz.dep, none of which made any difference.

However (even weirder) before I broke getFlash11 sometimes the getFlash_beta script would run if I ran getFlash11 first. Totally confusing. My guess is something messed up in my .dep files someplace, so I'm probably not getting reliable results.

That is weird..

Try this, copy the extracted
getFlash_beta.tcz
getFlash_beta.tcz.dep
getFlash_beta.tcz.md5.txt
to .../tce/optional

then
tce-load -i getFlash_beta


the script should run and install flash v24.xxx

what error message do you see when " getFlash_beta.sh " is run from the terminal?

(note: the script is named "getFlash_beta.sh")

getFlash11 is broken and depreciated in favor of two new extensions,

getFlash.tcz  &
getFlash_beta.tcz

both currently creating Flash version 24+ extensions
