Description:

Konch is a versatile utility that allows you to create system tray applets using standard scripting languages such as bash, Perl, or Python.

You control Konch via command-line parameters, DCOP, or your script's STDOUT. You can use standard or animated icons; apply a variety of effects; display pop-up messages in several ways; and create menus with nested submenus and checked, disabled, and invisible items. Your script can even accept DCOP calls, use the clipboard, and provide a drag-and-drop interface with or without a floating drop target.

Konch relays events such as clicks, drops, or DCOP calls to your script via command-line parameters (in Standard mode) or STDIN (in Hosted mode). Your script responds by simply printing out appropriate lines (such as a menu listing), or executing a certain function or program.

Please visit the homepage for the Handbook containing complete information, as well as to download other formats. The Handbook is also available as help:/konch/ once installed.

Thanks to Toni for the SuSE RPMs on PackMan!

I downloaded the source tarball and built it on SuSE 10.2. It installed without incident and the main examples ran okay. I coded python equivalents of the demo-standard and hosted-demo examples and they run. One should check that their script runs without errors before asking konch to run it.
Great application.


I have seen the future but I am not in it.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
