AppleScript Lazarus X11
« on: February 16, 2007, 07:31:05 am »
Is it possible to launch lazarus from a applescript? I have tried but not succeeded. Se code below :(

I was thinking of a .command script instead but is it possible to launch lazarus from terminal (tcsh) without X11 open?

The non-working X11 script:
Code: [Select]

on run
tell application "Finder"
activate application "X11"
set theCommand to "export DISPLAY=':0.0';/usr/local/share/lazarus/lazarus > /dev/null 2>&1 &"
with timeout of 100 seconds
do shell script theCommand with administrator privileges
end timeout
end tell
end run

Why not create an app bundle for Lazarus and run it by double-clicking or dropping it on the Dock? Haven't tried it in a while, but the instructions are here:

Thanks! A little problem with no sudo mode thought. But better than .sh file :)
