Displays user-friendly dialog boxes from shell scripts
DescriptionThis application provides a method of displaying several different types of dialog boxes from shell scripts. This allows a developer of a script to interact with the user in a much friendlier manner. The following types of boxes are at your disposal:
yes/no Typical query style box with "Yes" and "No" answer buttons
menu A scrolling list of menu choices with single entry selection
input Query style box with text entry field
message Similar to the yes/no box, but with only an "Ok" button
text A scrollable text box that works like a simple file viewer
info A message display that allows asynchronous script execution
checklist Similar to the menu box, but allowing multiple selections
radiolist Checklist style box allowing single selections
gauge Typical "progress report" style box
tail Allows viewing the end of files (tail) that auto updates
background tail Similar to tail but runs in the background.
editbox Allows editing an existing file
Upload new screenshots
Thanks for uploading more screenshots. Please note:
- Your screenshot should contain a typical scene when working with it.
- Take only a screenshot of the respective application and not of your whole desktop (unless the screenshot is meant for a window manager).
- Your screenshots must be in PNG format.
- You can upload multiple images at once.
- Your screenshot need to be approved by the moderators first. You will already see your screenshot but it will not be visible to others instantly. If moderators reject your upload you will get notified next time you visit this site (requires cookies).
- Images larger than 800x600 pixels will automatically be reduced. So don't try to capture too much detail in a screenshot. It may become unreadable. Shrink the applications window if possible.
- Screenshots are made public and can freely be used by anyone.
- Useful programs for making screenshots are shutter, ksnapshot (KDE), gimp, xwd or scrot. See the Debian wiki for more information on how to make screenshots under Debian.
- Please set your language to english so that everybody understands it. If you don't use english by default please start your application from a shell using after setting "export LANG=C".
