apturl-elm improvements

Recommended Posts

Did some updates to apturl-elm this evening to make it a bit more visually appealing:

If you have any ideas for further improvement let me know.

That's awesome! Thank you Jeff. I also have an idea. At the moment, when trying to install Windows ".exe" or ".msi" file, nothing happens.

This creates a confusion for newcomers from Windows. It looks as if Bodhi is broken and not capable of installing software.

 

I thought it will be nice if when clicking on ".exe" or ".msi" file, an alert should appear, letting user know that Bodhi doesn't support this kind of files. An alternative could be that "Bodhi has detected that this file is a virus and has protected you from infecting your machine" =)

Also, In case .exe application has linux version in AppStore, the .exe file should be deleted automatically, and the counterpart should be installed correctly.

It isn't strictly correct though that you can't use .exe or .msi files on Bodhi though. While a good idea there really isn't a very clean way to implement it.
