Ticker bugfix ... alpha 2

i changed AppRun so the roxapp works if you click it
i changed ticker and ticker2 so they execute the roxapp using rox (as if you clicked it)

i found the ticker scripts did not work well on my machine (adsl internet connection)

i changed the scripts from something like:

wget &
exec ticker.app &

to something like:

rm -f $OUTPUT
ticker.app &
sleep 1
wget

this seems to work with my machine
i don't know how well it would work with dialup
ticker-bugfix.pup

The above bug-fix won't work well for dial-up users.

It should be like this instead:

ticker.app &
wget

Or,

ticker.app &
sleep 1
wget

Details see this post

And thanks G2 Smile

i uploaded version 2 of my ticker bugfix (first post in this thread)

i changed the scripts so they work like this:

rm -f $OUTPUT
ticker.app &
sleep 1
wget

i don't know if rm -f $OUTPUT is a good idea or not
i thought it would ensure that the ticker shows the latest news

sleep 1 is probably unecessary, but it might be safer

AppRun is the same as the alpha 1 version
it checks if it is already running, and does not run if it is
it creates /root/.ticker if it does not exist
