Description Philip Ashmore 2007-08-19 21:54:25 EDT
Description of problem:
There isn't a direct means of starting idle

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Look for a direct way to start idle
2.
3.
  
Actual results:
There isn't one

Expected results:
There should be a direct way to start idle

Additional info:
I wrote a bash script to do this.
Change SCRIPT_PATH to a directory you can write to in your PATH and PYTHON_VER
to whatever version of Python you have installed.

SCRIPT_PATH=~/bin
PYTHON_VER=2.5
cat >$SCRIPT_PATH/idle << EOF
#!/bin/bash
/usr/bin/python -tt /usr/lib/python$PYTHON_VER/idlelib/idle.py
EOF
chmod a+x $SCRIPT_PATH/idle

I prefer to define PYTHON_VER in my ~/.bashrc, but whatever you think best.
Now when you wish to start idle you can use
    Alt-F2/idle
or in konsole
    idle &
