Launcher for Hardware Probe

Сообщение ShalokShalom » 12 янв 2015, 22:59

"Today the market offers a huge variety of configurations of personal computers. In the development of the ROSA operating system we make considerable efforts to support all possible configurations.

Five years ago, when developing first versions of the operating system and, until recently, we used the industry-standard method of user interaction. If the user encountered some problem, then he reported about it on our forum or bugzilla. The support team then began to ask the user to submit characteristics of the computer, system logs, etc. All these numerous data were collected in comments to the appropriate bug in bugzilla and then analyzed by the developers. The main disadvantage of this approach was that the user was required to perform too much actions, so the debugging of the problem stretched into weeks, and sometimes months.

To simplify the process of interaction with users, we have developed the HW Probe Tool."

I create a simple menu launcher for this awesome tool to simplify this process a bit more,
and support the improvement of driver support in order of that.

In order to create it, add the casual menu into your task bar, right click it and choose:

Edit Applications:

Then, choose the place in your menu, where you want to create your starter
and type konsole --noclose -e hw-probe -all -upload -id crystalball into the command field:

Then, choose the advanced tab, activate "Run as a different user" and write root into the username field:

Click on save and find your launcher in the menu:

Enter your root password:

Copy and paste (with the mouse or ctrl/strg + shift + C/V) the URL into the bugtracker and/or forum.

I aim to create a package for the contribution repo, which creates that launcher and hope for help, to do this.

That is just a launcher, created in "Edit Applications" Menu of KDE :)

Just follow the Guide here :)

I think, its possible to create a .desktop file, my packaging skillz are low.

If my vote counts: Crystal Ball is imho a nice name for this starter ;)

Thanks a lot for your request :D

The problem is that the user should be able to set its own name of the probe. Seems that is is not possible to do using this launcher. We should create an application with the appropriate GUI interface for that.

Thanks a lot for showing me this :)

I think, there is for sure also a way, to use the hostname ?

Most people will not understand, why they have to enter a name (and especially, which one)
so i think its sense full, to jump over this additional step, yes ? :)

I think can use the hostname, but can even add to it a random number that is generated automatically.

To do all in automatic mode, it is necessary to edit the code. I didn't write code hw-probe, probably have to ask the creators of this program.
