Integrate

Integrate self-installed software into a FreeDesktop system.

This script creates a desktop entry and a launcher script placed into the PATH for any of your self-installed applications. This is mainly useful for software not coming from package repositories.

Installation

Using a pre-compiled script

  1. Download the latest compiled script.
  2. Make the script executable.
  3. Move it somewhere into your PATH.

Enter the commands below in a terminal to perform those steps:

wget https://github.com/Calinou/integrate/releases/download/continuous/integrate
chmod +x integrate
sudo mv integrate /usr/local/bin/
  1. Done! See the Usage section below for usage instructions.

From source

  1. Install Argbash somewhere in your PATH.
  2. Clone this repository or download a ZIP archive.
  3. Change into the repository's root directory then type make && sudo make install.
  4. Done! See the Usage section below for usage instructions.

Usage

integrate path/to/program

The program will ask you a few questions, such as the application name and an optional comment. The path to the application binary or script can be absolute or relative, it bears no importance on the final result.
