That's great Valtam.
You can use the script for the remover from post #42 to save some time. :)

  • Kernel: 6.x
litesoftware_1.0-0150 for 32bit and litesoftware_1.0-0170 for 64bit are now available. Run Install Updates to get it.

Changes:
  • Multiple install selection available for Install Additional Software only (thanks misko).
  • Install Additional Software now asks for password only once upon launch.
  • Less code.

To do: Add multiple selection option for Remove Additional Software.

Is it possible to detect those apps which are already installed, and maybe have an option to hide them?
Thanks for the suggestion. At the moment, I don't see how to add that.

Valtam, is this ok? The other scripts are all working.

Example - You want to install Chrome and Skype. If you choose Yes to launch Chrome after it has finished installing, the Skype installer won't start. Do you think you could fix this? Cheers.
That's an easy fix. You will have to edit all of the install scripts and where there is a command to start the app just add &
This way the program will run in the background. [Edit] This way the shell will not wait for the command to finish.
Here is an example:
Code: [Select]
chromium-browser &
Code: [Select]
#!/bin/bash
#-------------------------------------------
# Description: Linux Lite Installer Dialogue
# Author: Jerry Bezencon 2014
# Website: https://www.linuxliteos.com
#-------------------------------------------

# Main window dialogue.
 INSTALLER_TITLE="Chromium Web Browser Installer
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This will install the Chromium Web Browser.

When you click on Yes, this window will close and the install will begin.
The install time will vary based on your internet connection and computer.
Support is available from - http://www.chromium.org/Home

Once installed, Chromium is located in Menu, Internet.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Click on Yes to continue or No to cancel the installation."

# Call the zenity window icon location.
 INSTALL_ICON="/usr/share/icons/zenity-llcc.png"
 APPNAME="Chromium Web Browser"
       
        zenity --question --title="$APPNAME Installer" --window-icon="${INSTALL_ICON}" --text="${INSTALLER_TITLE}"

                if [ "$?" -eq "0" ]; then
                        gksudo -g --message 'To install this software your password is required. Enter your password, or press Cancel.' "sudo apt-get install -f chromium-browser --force-yes -y" | zenity --progress --title="Installing $APPNAME" --window-icon="${INSTALL_ICON}" --text="Please wait whilst $APPNAME downloads and installs..." --pulsate --width=400 --auto-close --auto-kill


                                if [ "${PIPESTATUS[0]}" -ne "0" ]; then
                       
                                        zenity --error \
                                        --title="Error" --text="$APPNAME could not be installed."
                                        exit 0
                                fi

                else

                                        exit 0
                fi


PROCEED=$(zenity --question --title="$APPNAME Installer" --window-icon=/usr/share/icons/zenity-llcc.png --text="The installation has finished.\n\nWould you like to launch $APPNAME now?"; echo $?)

8) Great work Misko_2083. The script is evolving nicely.
Thank you
I have tried the multiple selection script, it just gets to jumbled with windows on top of windows. For me for now the Select radio list is the best iteration to date. Keep evolving :)
Haha I was thinking the same thing.  :) This is doing exactly what I wanted.
