Sugar Activity starting
How can a user start an activity from the command line?
How can a user start an activity from the command line without starting Sugar? Please supply a sample command.
Why? I'm tired of digging around for the error logs. I figured I could do something like
sugar - run pippy 2>pippyerrors.txt
- Note the above command will take some messing around with to get what you want.
I have tried:
user@ubuntu:~/sugar-jhbuild$ ./sugar-jhbuild launch pippy sugar-jhbuild launch: command not found user@ubuntu:~/sugar-jhbuild$ ./sugar-jhbuild sugar - launch pippy sugar-jhbuild sugar: command not found user@ubuntu:~/sugar-jhbuild$ ./sugar-jhbuild pippy sugar-jhbuild pippy: command not found user@ubuntu:~/sugar-jhbuild$ ./sugar-jhbuild run pippy sugar-jhbuild run: Unable to execute the command 'pippy': [Errno 2] No such file or directory
And the response.
<bemasc> dgd: impossible. <dgd> bemasc, ? <dgd> not possible to run activities from jhbuild is that what you mean bemasc <bemasc> dgd: sugar activities cannot run outside of sugar, and more than a java applet can run outside of the JVM, or a flash applet can run outside of a flash interpreter. <bemasc> s/and/any/ <dgd> ok, so running just the activity in sugar? <dgd> just one activity, none of the home stuff etc. <bemasc> also not possible <dgd> I thought for sure I read in the docs that you can run just an activity... <bemasc> by "not possible" I mean "requires you to modify the code for the Sugar shell". < bemasc> You can probably cause Sugar to launch and immediately start an activity. You might be able to do this using a .xsession script. <bemasc> However, users will still be able to bring up the frame and switch to the home view, etc.
Where are the activities stored?
Some users will find them here:
Jhbuild users will find the activities here:
