[maemo-users] swapon/off via CPU/Mem/Screenshot applet (Re: [maemo-users] Swap on mmc after six or more months)

I justed noticed, that John Costigan (the author of Maemo-Mapper) 
modified Jakub Pavelek's original "CPU/Mem/Screenshot applet" to 
include a generic 'execute & memorize an arbitrary command' feature:


John's approach is very well suited to manually swapoff/on: you simply 
execute e.g. "/usr/bin/sudo /sbin/swapon /dev/mmcblk0p2" once via the 
"run" menu item of the applet, check the "Save as:" checkbox and name 
this command "swapoff". Same with "swapon". (/etc/sudoers has to be 
edited in advance.)

John's "run" modification of Jakub's applet is a generalization of my 
"swapon/off" modification, and it looks less buggy.

To cut a long story short: there is no need anymore for my 
"CPU/Mem/Screenshot applet with swapon/off". Please use John's.

  regards, Armin.
