Launcher for xjig adds open dialog and file conversion

I have long recognized that to be usable by young kids, xjig really needs a better user interface. So I wrote a launcher, xjig-menu to address the problem. It adds a file open dialog (via zentiy) and support for more file formats (via imagemagick).


I have put this script in subversion and added a man page. Check it out:

  $ svn co svn://

or browse the repository.

In the past I wrote a script for Nautilus that added an option to the context menu, so we’d right click on a picture -> Script -> Jigsaw and it would convert the image to a gif and run xjig. It even supported selecting multiple images…

It received a high wife approval factor at the time. 🙂

Sorry, new to Linux, running Kubuntu. Tried to install xjig, but the only thing I can see is the sample picture, no menu so far. How do I accomplish this?
Thanks, Will
