stay running command
« on: February 16, 2008, 06:54:26 pm »


is there a command to keep a program running until a mouse click or key press --reason :

I can run a winsaver in linux with wine /path/file.scr -s and no -s will open the config dialog.

but the mouse is sensitive and saver does not run long.

 thanks for any

perhaps this requires a script
wine /path/file.scr -s
if input then exit
elseif stay running

LOL well I am running a linux saver as my wallpaper so do not need this.  but it has other application and sometimes a classic freeware is just comforting..perhaps its not a simple answer..hard to believe NO one actually knows how to do this. anyway
