Two new and interesting releases today. RunIT-QT upgrades to 0.5. and Vol2x upgrades to QT5.
RunIT-QT has gone through code cleanup and now it uses only the modules it needs. Both, have a new outlook and they come with icons also. I used Adwaita icons and I compiled them directly to python files. The previous makes installation and upgrading easier – since importing from other files is non-existent. Also, there is plenty of new code: Vol2x-QT5 and RunIT-QT 0.5 each have well over 1000 lines.
RunIT-QT 0.5 brings outlook and usability upgrades.
RunIT-QT (PostX 0.4.1 default browser) is added to Python programs.

Runner-Bar v.0.1 was good but since I love styling I just made a new better release. Runner-Bar v.0.2 comes with a CSS support – now CSS actually handles all the styling. I also added tooltips, removed some obsoleted code and cleared some unneeded module importing while I was add it. I decided to keep the Runner-Bar v.0.1 page onboard as a reference. You can find it here.
Also, a “new release” of Power Manager 3 is now available. This bug fix release only fixes a minor spacing issue.Gentoo distribution complained about the spacing and did not want to start the program at all. On Debian base there was not even an error. Here is a screenshot from the new Runner-Bar. Now, the buttons will also highlight when you move mouse cursor on top of them.
The latest addition to my programming portfolio: Power-Manager 3 is now here. Power-Manager 3 is a re-designed version of the older Power-Manager, which was originally put together with Zenity and Bash.
Power-Manager 3 does the same things as its older ancestor. As always, the screenshot speaks for itself:
Power-Manager 3 with QT4
You will need python and python-qt4 in order to run this program. Remember to make it executable with chmod +x power.py
Run the program with python power.py
Remember to execute the above commands within a terminal client. You can also make a symbolic link – to achieve an easier startup.(For example, sudo ln -s power.py /usr/local/bin/power)
The program uses sudo. If you use the traditional root account instead then replace the program code’s gksudo lines with gksu . Of course, make sure that you actually have gksudo or gksu installed on your system before using the program.
