[etoys-dev] npsqueakrun hack on Ubuntu

I had to hack npsqueakrun script to workaround a problem in npsqueakrun that
caused it to fail in Ubuntu. The seventh argument (script) is empty and gets
lost in the last exec. So the startup code in the image got one argument less
and that messed up the param value pairs. I passed /dev/null to workaround
With this hack, npsqueak.so plugin works with any image ($IMAGEFILE), vm
(VMDIR) and no root permissions
cp npsqueak.so ~/.npsqueak
ln -s ~/.npsqueak/npsqueak.so ~/.mozilla/plugins
cp $IMAGEFILE ~/.npsqueak/SqueakPlugin.image
ln -s $VMDIR ~/.npsqueak/vmdir
Turn off 'warn if ...' preferences in Preferences->general for a development
image. Copy attached npsqueakrun file to $HOME/.npsqueak/ directory.
I was able to browse through projects in showcase using Firefox and Konqueror.
Konqi crashes in npsqueak.so sometimes while exiting projects but the project
itself works fine.
I am posting the hack to discuss if we really need a separate npsqueakrun
script? if npsqueak passes /dev/null for script then npsqueak can be symlinked
directly to vmdir/bin/squeak.
