|Here's the senaniro, user downloads very large background to home directory. Take for example the original background that you made. Then copy to /opt/.backgrounds via your mod. Now they have two copies of a very large file in their backup. To add only copy/delete functions therefore means that the use will still have to use a file manager to avoid this situation, i.e, (to delete the duplicate in home/dsl, therfore, it would be more efficent to move it. Therefore the filemanager is the more appropriate tool. Always thinking of small machines having duplicates (especially large ones) only magifies this situation, longer, slower backups, or even "broken pipe" backup situation.|
There are many GUIs that still need to be made. However as developer of DSL I reserve the right on what will be included in core DSL. There are many users whose murgaLua scripts (ucitool.lua, netcardconf.lua, flrun.lua, editor.lua, slide_puzzle.lua, and mydslBrowser.lua) have been accepted.
Of course, and u probably know it, it's not that hard to make some checkboxes in the gui where the user can select what happens to the original copy of the wallpaper he wants to add, options like "Delete Original", and "Keep Original". So that the user can choose his own. (with of course the Delete Original as default option)
And sure, u reserve the right of deciding what comes with DSL xD. I'm not blaming u for the fact u dont add my script ;-).
And i think its a good idea for u (roberts) to make a new topic with a list of GUI's that need to be made, i'll try to make some then.
@mikshaw: lol, yesterdayi thought about how cool it would be if i made a wget/download GUI script with Lua. I'll try to make some like that too.
again updated addWallpaper.lua, you can now select if u want to delete or keep the original image.
(oh, and keep in mind these are my first steps in developing ((very)little) apps ;-) )
