Hello Siarhei,

I was wondering if there is an easy solution myself.  Perhaps a port of
gdialog, xsu, and the use of any one of these scripts adapted to the
Maemo environment would do the trick
http://g-scripts.sourceforge.net/cat-filesysmgt.php .  I just tried
making a launcher for vim.  The launcher showed up in extras but did not
fire up vim even though I had a string of shell commands from gainroot
on to the actual vim command.  I think a gui has to be involved to start
off with.  So gdialog--I think there's a replacement for it--are very
light gui applications.  gdialog may be enough to fill the gui bill and
make the text based applications work.  With gdialog you can use
different widgets for input as I recall.

It would be interesting if the Maemo filemanger could have a scripts
directory too.

Oh and don't forget to look into the status bar application found here
http://maemo-hackers.org/wiki/OssoXterm .  Perhaps some saved commands
will do the trick?  At least they document poking values into
/home/user/.osso/appinstaller.  Of course the challenge is doing
something with root.  Hence, my first approach without coding - gdialog.

The big challenge for me right now is time.  So if someone can see if
gdialog ports easy, I'd love to hear about it!  ;-)
