Ok, so when i used windows i liked incredibly much autohotkey www.autohotkey.com
The coding was incredibly simple and powerful, i had a script in my startup that went something like this
1 read settings.txt and store in variable %state%
2 if %state% = 1
2.1 msgbox timeout=10s "ABORTING /n run=cancel"
2.2 if buttonpress=ok or buttonpress=timeout
3.1 msgbox timeout=10s "RUNNING /n run=wait,ok"
3.2 if buttonpress=cancel
4 loop all files in folder of script
4.1 if filename<>scriptname and filename<>settings.txt
4.1.1 run file
(note code in ahk is not like the above, i just made something that is easy to understand by coders)
if i have a project to make, i put all my shortcuts in the script folder, like notes, the app i use(or the project and when it runs it uses that app), editor for the project and stuff like that
soo here are my worries, how do i create a script in ubuntu? i tried to make files that run in terminal or ask to be run in terminal and no matter what extension i gave them they just sit there and wait to be edited by the txt editor... i found in some of the ubuntu folders a file that asked to be run, basically when i want to create a script i just copy that file, delete everything inside it and copy in it what i want it to run (also change the name of the script)
q1 how do i create a script that asks to be run in terminal?
q2 can i create something like the above? with message boxes and other
