I would like to release a GUI for mklivecd, a command line utility to create your own livecd from a Mandrake.
I am in the process of writing shell scripts (involving the 'dialog' command) for that but idealy I would like to have a GUI interface.
I don't know anything about programming apart from my few attempts at shell scripting (see in this forum) but am eager to learn and would like to code this program.
It shouldn't be too difficult, but I don't really know how to pass the values from the GUI to the command line and get feedback from the command line.
Ideally I would like to have the following:
1. Choice of kernels
2. CHoice of looptype (automatically selected with the kernel)
3. Progress bar (% are fine, don't really need the time to completion)
I would prefer to do it with GTK (using Glade for instance) rather than with Qt since I prefer GNOME (since 2.6) to KDE. But a KDE interface would be OK I suppose.
I plan to code on interface with Kaptain but I am not sure that it can display the output of the command in the GUI which is my primary concern. If anybody knows how to do that with Kaptain, then I'll go with Kaptain since it seems more approachable for someone of my level.
Just so that you have an idea of what i am aiming for, I attach the script I have written for that purpose. It uses the dialog command.
