You could put something like this into a file (the name of the file doesn't matter, and doesn't need any special file extension, unlike Windows):
You could call it something like updateOM.sh (sh is a common, but optional, file extension for shell scripts).Code:
Make the file executable by executing "chmod +x updateOM.sh"
To test it, just type "./updateOM.sh". The "./" at the beginning is needed.
To create a desktop icon for it, just right-click the desktop and select "Create Launcher", and fill out the details.
Edit: you could also create the script on the desktop (instead of your home folder), make it executable, and skip the "Create Launcher" step.
Thanks. Worked like a charm!
I will be trying to follow this thread to get OM up and running on my machine.
Is there a different dependency list between developing OM for linux and for running it or are they both the same?
I will try to get this up and running under Ubuntu 12.04.1 and go from there.
I can probably even setup a torrent to put it up and available as well once I have it up and running.
I want to get it working under x86 as well as ARM versions of ubuntu.
(WIll be developing under x86 and will be running it on a ARM machine.)
