"First class" X11 apps
Authored by: dkulp on Aug 29, '05 10:24:54AM

I've often thought about your idea. This would be a really nice feature if (1) the icon could be dynamically set (e.g. the print app changes its icon depending on the printer) so that only one underlying program was needed and the .app directories were lightweight wrappers, (2) a daemon could be X11 aware (like any of the X11 window managers) so that a .app would be launched whenever an X11 executable was started, i.e. you could launch an X11 application from the finder/dock OR the finder/dock would start a "shadow" .app program if you launched from a terminal, and (3) icons already created by X11 application programmers would be automatically used.
