i thought what is lacks for work with scm extensions
and understood that there is no way to run they
through the menu or wbar that are not loaded at boot
i saw that netnomad already twice asked about this

Scms can be loaded at boot. Use ScmBrowser.  They will appear both on the menu and wbar if an icon is provided. Also use ScmBrowser to uninstall. Both the menu and wbar icon will be adjusted. Such uninstall is not possible with tcz and therefore each extension type has certain features and functions. Whereas for tczs one would use AppsAudit to adjust OnDemand, one uses ScmBrowser for all functions and features of scm self contained apps. Uninstall or Install is scm version of Ondemand++.

I`m not a big fan of the Wbar, it`s neat looking the first time you see it, but it wastes space and needs popups for text.

I propose a new efficient popup / down menu be made for them, I have such a menu working that`s a clock button.
It auto. lists all Squash files found on all partitions in a given dir. It mounts the app. when run and unmounts at exit.

thank you roberts
this is i know and understand the differences
Uninstall or Install is scm version of Ondemand++.
sorry but i did not understand this phrase

i mean that need add to scmbrowser the ondemand install option
thus script scm-load may place into the folder tce/ondemand
the scm application icon (img) and ondemand script like this
Quote
#!/bin/sh
SAVE_ARGS=$*
TCEDIR=/etc/sysconfig/tcedir
if [ ! -d /apps/scm_application ]; then
  scm-load -i $TCEDIR/optional/scm_application.scm
fi
[ $(which /apps/bin/scm_application) ] && exec   /apps/bin/scm_application ${SAVE_ARGS}
and then scm application ondemand script with icon
will be processed by standard de and wbar scripts
Code: [Select]
desktop.sh
$DESKTOP_initmenu
$DESKTOP_makemenu
$DESKTOP_menu_common
$DESKTOP_ondemand
$ICONS_update.sh
this innovation adds more convenience to use
scm applications that are not loaded at boot
