    Possible future applications (what do you want to see)

    Hello all,

    I have received many request of application request for future addition into UCE. Some apps i have heard from and others i have not so i wanted to start a single thread that is used to bring applications that you all would like to see in UCE. Of course i will try and run them through wine if there is not a native linux version and this will require much testing. NOTE: You can simple reply to this thread with the application and i will add it to this list.

    gverse (will have to be compiled from source)
    Script to pull down daily verses on desktop. (Not a app aside from a script using conky but it was requested by multiple people as a good idea. This script compliments of our own nixblog here on the forums which i intend to include in next release.)

    We have the source code for WeatherBug for Linux, but as of right now, it won't launch. It's also tied to Java, which I don't care for. If someone is willing to take it, free it from Java, and turn it into a working Linux app, I could put you in touch with my Linux guy at WeatherBug.

    I also work for WeatherBug, and having WeatherBug back on my Linux system would be fun.

    If Proclaim can be tested to see if it runs in WINE, that'd be interesting as well. It's church presentation software. Trying to think of other good tools UCE could include. Let me ponder it over.

    For daily verses, check out Verse if the Day from Biblia/Logos Bible Software. That'd give you the high res images you need.

    My company (Mallard) is wanting to get into building some apps and customizations for Linux (I'd also like to have a custom theme built sometime). Anyone interested PM me and I'll you all what we're interested in.

    Maybe include the following from the default Ubuntu CE Build.

    Instructions, or a script for Installing:
    The WatchTower Library (2013 or earlier)(Different years require playing with different configuration settings in WINE.);
    The LDS Library 2009 or The LDS Library 2006;

    An old blog post, but worth considering, is http://sword-and-scabbard.blogspot.c...christian.html.
    And now I bend the knee of my heart,
    Imploring you for your kindness.

    Thank you for the application suggestions. They all will be looked at to see about future releases. Just a heads up my current focus is a easy to use gui for dansguardian/privoxy.

    The bolded portion above is probably the best thing I could think of for an update. DG functionality is actually what turned me off to CE for a bit. During that time I just grabbed a 'vanilla' Ubuntu ISO and pulled some of the stuff from repos to get the CE bits that I needed. DG got buggy/confusing and having to search for commands while on another computer to fix it got...annoying. haha

    Agreed. I've gotten pretty good at configing dansguardian through the command line, but any attempt to make it easier to use for "mere mortals" would be excellent. I personally like the extra layer of having dansguardian on my system, as I feel more secure with it and love the additional content filtering controls, but dansguardian can be so overbearing to the point where I can't even download files off my seminary's courseware. It's great I know how to use the command line to edit it, but having a GUI will be excellent.

    Re: Possible future applications (what do you want to see)

    Installing Watchtower Library 2013 on Ubuntu 13:10 is very straightforward:

    First put the Watchtower Library CD in the drive.
    Wait until it loads and start up a terminal
    Next run the following:
    Code:
    mount
    you will need to find out where the disc is mounted.
    It will be something like:


    /dev/sr0 on /media/WTLIB13E


    Next run the following:
    Code:
    cd
    cd .wine/drive_c/windows
    wine /media/WTLIB13E/Setup.exe
    This should start up the installer and complete the installation after you answer the usual questions and put you an Icon on your desktop.


    You can remove the Watchtower Library version 2012 as follows:
    Code:
    cd
    wine .wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Watchtower/Watchtower\ Library\ 2012/E/uninst.exe
    Running 14.04 on my HP Pavilion g6 4 Gig Ram 320 Gig Disc
