CRunner (C++)

Here is one program that was born as a spin-off of Runner-QT. Meet CRunner: a program written with C++ and using Gtk+. The program is about 60 lines long and heavily commented -> you can easily follow the code.


/CRunner v.1 Copyright (c) 2017 JJ Posti <> #This program comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; #for details see: #This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it under #GPL Version 2, June 1991″)/

You need something along the lines of libgtk-3-dev and build-essential installed in  order to compile CRunner. Also make sure that you have pkg-config installed. Compile with the command: g++ crunner.cpp -o crunner pkg-config --cflags --libs gtk+-3.0

-o crunner is the output file.  Adjust cflags and libs to match your system – if needed.

Run the program with this command: ./crunner . If needed make the progam executable with: chmod +x crunner . Considerations. Runner-QT and CRunner offer similar features. If any problems appear with Python+QT5 (Runner-QT) then CRunner becomes the default launcher dialog when PostX Gnu/Linux reaches Debian Stretch base.
