various non-free download scripts Subject description: pet to follow
In case anyone wants to build a puplet with easier acces to non-free applications, I am trying to collect all of the download+install scripts in one location.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_proprietary_software_for_Linux Acroread - not yet supported - need permalink
Google-* - not yet supported - need permalinks
Opera - not yet supported - need permalink
Foxit - not yet supported - need permalink
RealPlayer - not yet supported - need permalink
dowload skype and set it up as a rox app dir in current directory
select a version of flashplayer to install (and mask it as latest version if needed)
mkdir -p $PLUGINDIR
case $1 in
--help)echo " options are:
7 for smallest size and dependencies,
9 for medium size and fewer dependencies
10 for latest version
f fix existing
no options will bring up an xdialog"
foxit reader is a much better choice unless you have a very nuanced pdf file - its only about 1mb or so and the script on that one should be pretty easy since it is only a single executable if I recall correctly. _________________ Check out my github repositories. I may eventually get around to updating my blogspot.
