Automatically upon exit from appsaudit.

Or if only using CLI tce-audit then when specified.
Example:

tce-load -wo abiword
tce-audit updatedeps
tce-audit delete abiword
tce-audit remove

There is a typo in tinycore-filemgr.desktop

Quote
Categories=Utilities;

where Utilities is an invalid category. Correct definition:

Quote
Categories=Utility;

I advise to add this entry:

Quote
OnlyShowIn=Old;

This would hide fluff in DE's like LXDE or Xfce as they are packed with their own file manager already but would leave native TC environment unchanged.

tce-remove removes only the non installed apps, but if an app is copied to fs it can be deleted

In a .desktop file you can define a terminal application which is executed in the default terminal window. For Midnight Commander it looks like

Quote
Exec=mc
Terminal=true
Type=Application

It worsk in Xfce, but not honored by TC and while it appears on WBAR not executed in a terminal so doesn't work. On the WBAR it must be executed as

Quote
aterm -e mc

However binding it to aterm is not a good solution as user may have changed to another terminal like urxvt due to UTF-8 environment. Proposal is to introduce the system wise terminal which defaults to aterm and can be changed by user or extension, and used on WBAR. It can be a text file for example

/etc/sysconfig/terminal

BTW, Terminal= requires a Boolean argument. Allowed values are 0, 1, true, false (lower case). However detecting it case insensitive would eliminate some further headackes.

If such a system wise terminal would be introduced, would such be without any impact in the case of concurrently using aterm(s) and VT(s)?

Of course base must be adjusted accordingly, for example terminal in the menu or on WBAR must start the proper terminal. It would work similarly as /etc/sysconfig/Xserver currently.

How about just pointing the "xterm" symlink to whatever terminal one uses? It's by default to aterm, but can be overridden by the startup script of any terminal extension.

It's the generic terminal name, and tried by just about any app that calls a terminal.

May work, but I'm not sure. A while ago testing UTF-8 setup I had some issues where application depended on terminal name, and the related environment variable BTW to set up its behavior but do not remember details. This has to be tested.
