Any GUI-Based jzintv Frontends for Linux?

Recommended Posts

I have the scripts I wrote to select a few options from a menu, but it's all command-line.  I've never developed for X11 before, so I thought I'd ask if any such thing exists already before I go reinventing the wheel.

I use Linux Files Manager / Nautilus and it's right-click send to script function.

That sounds like what I had in mind to build.  Unfortunately, neither of those packages are readily available in my distro.  The closest thing I could find is xorg-util-macro, but there is no man page, and I gave up trying to find any documentation online.  From the sound of it, I assume it's a graphical macro generator.

You just put your jzintv script at  ~/.local/share/nautilus/scripts/ and it adds it to the right click menu.  That's ubuntu, which linux are you using?

It's called Termux, which runs in chroot on an Android device and doesn't require rooting.

 

What I was thinking was a bunch of drag-and-drop GUI controls, with a Launch button that would generate the appropriate string, and would then pass that string into a shell.  Not unlike jzintv Launcher, which I use in Windows.

Not yet.  I've been occasionally giving some oxygen to a GTK-based version of the LTO Flash! UI software (LUI) the past couple years. At present, it's got much of the core functionality needed to communicate with LTO Flash! implemented, with plenty of gaps in some of the more advanced UI features.

 

LUI on Mac / Windows does have integration to support launching jzintv for ROMs tracked in the UI.  The parts that are missing in the experimental GTK version are the settings and the UI to point LUI to your jzintv and "system" ROMs.  The most recent updates to that branch of the code removed using gconf for settings storage.
