Download xwinwrap from this site http://tech.shantanugoel.com/2008/09/03/shantz-xwinwrap.html, then execute it depend on your architecture (x86 or x64). and then
- Open a terminal window (Applications>Accessories>Terminal).
- Optional: Install mplayer for video support:
- Install SVN:
- Run the following command to download the code:
- 'cd' (change directories) to the directory you just downloaded:
- Make gwinwrap executable:
- And run the application:
sudo apt-get install mplayer
sudo apt-get install subversion
svn checkout http://gwinwrap.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ gwinwrap-read-only
chmod a+x gwinwrap.py
If this seems complex, it is because this is a new application and is not stable enough to be run outside of a terminal (in my opinion). It is of course possible (once making the gwinwrap.py file executable) to double-click gwinwrap.py to launch gwinwrap, but you may want to see the terminal output.
A setup.py script is planned to make installation simpler.
If updates are made to the code, you can "cd" to the gwinwrap-read-only directory:
and your code will update the the latest and greatest (but not necessarily the most bug-free) version!
