Looking for a lazy gui
 
Hi Debianistas,

I recall stumbling upon a program in the Debian archive which was a simple
GUI - a customisable row of buttons and text-boxes - and which could be
hooked up to any script, as a shortcut to actually writing a gui (which i
can't do).

It would be perfect for a Python program I want my non-CLI-using colleagues to
be able to use; problem is, I can't remember what it's called.

Anyone out there remember?

Thanks,

John

Probably not exactly what you were looking for, but
http://easygui.sourceforge.net/ might do what you want.


Also, the python-dialog package might do what you want.

If python is not a must-have, and you want something even simpler, give
gtkdialog a try. Ref:

http://xpt.sourceforge.net/techdocs/language/gtkdialog/gtkde02-
GtkdialogExamples/

e.g.,
http://xpt.sourceforge.net/techdocs/language/gtkdialog/gtkde02-
GtkdialogExamples/ar01s06.html
etc.

If that is still not simple enough, install tk and try the following
script:

---------------------------------------------------
#! /bin/sh
# -*- tcl -*- make next line a commnet in tcl
exec wish -f $0 -- ${1+"$@"} # must be the next line

button .a -padx 15 -pady 5 -text "wkpks00a" -command "exec xterm -e
rlogin wkpks00a &"
pack .a -padx 4 -pady 2 -fill x
button .b -padx 15 -pady 5 -text "wk" -command "exec xterm -e rlogin
wkpks00a &"
pack .b -padx 4 -pady 2 -fill x
button .c -padx 15 -pady 5 -text "wkpks00v" -command "exec xterm -e
rlogin wkpks00a &"
pack .c -padx 4 -pady 2 -fill x
---------------------------------------------------

Which is a GTK2 cousin of python-dialog.
