Nice!  ;D

Noticed opera10.tcz and emelfm2.tcz (as ondemand items) has no wbar icons.

As stated in the Tiny Core announcement, ondemand icons currently only support one binary to one icon, i.e, a single .desktop item (no submenus). Submenus don't translate well into wbar. I suppose I could process just the first item, but chose not to do so, initially or until feedback suggests otherwise.

Both Opera and emelfm2 have multiple .desktop items (submenus) and are therefore not currently supported as OnDemand icons.

I would prefer if the menu items and wbar icons looked exactly as if already installed.

It would be nice if you could add a $1 to those ondemand scrips that are launching the application after tce-load. Then one could use these ondemand items as default action for various mime types.

using microcore on a pendrive results the ondemand entries to not work due to the full paths included in the .ico. Infact the pendrive can be recognised as sda1, sdb1, depends

Good point.  I will address this and issue an rc4 for you to test. Thanks for reporting.
