Description

Shortcuts for the IzPack installer system have not yet been implemented, although it is possible to create such shortcuts for Windows (and Linux).

Such shortcuts need to be implemented.

History

#1 Updated by Dan Higgins about 11 years ago

Information is in IzPack documentation on shortcuts.
Also see as an example
IzPack\src\dist-files\shortcutSpec.xml

#2 Updated by Chad Berkley about 11 years ago

dan got this working for windows. need to add it for the mac.

#3 Updated by Dan Higgins about 11 years ago

I am not sure what 'shortcuts' mean for the Mac (an icon on the desktop?). Apparently, shortcuts for the Mac is NOT supported by IzPack. I suspect that a simle Unix script could be added to create an Alias on the desktop for the Mac.

#4 Updated by Chad Berkley about 11 years ago

I think we just copy the .app to the /Applications directory. Then users can drag it to the doc. that's what usually happens when you install an app on osx.

#5 Updated by Dan Higgins about 11 years ago

Simply copying the kepler.app to the Applications directory will not work (due to some relative paths). To make the $KEPLER directory look like it does on other platforms, a number of needed files are not inside the kepler.app (hidden) directory ( they are inside the parent directory).

Copying an alias to kepler.app does work

The other option would be to not try to preserve the development environment and actually put all the classes within kepler.app

#6 Updated by Chad Berkley about 11 years ago

I'm going to close this bug and open another for osx since this is now fixed for windows.
