$ klik klik2://beagle
and happily run beagle. All the dependency packages will be automatically downloaded and managed in the background. Or to download once and use many times, you can do
$ klik get beagle
$ alias runbeagle='klik run ~/Desktop/beagle.cmg'
Not all of the above is happening right away; klik2 is under development and is looking promising but not completely done yet. But if you already have mono and want to run beagle, you can sort of do it now. This works for any distribution that klik2 works for, which is basically almost all the major distributions.
- Get and install klik2
- Download http://cs-people.bu.edu/dbera/blogdata/beagle.xml
- $ klik get beagle.xml
- It will do a lot of stuff and end up failing since there is no single app called "beagle" in the beagle package. It will however create the file ~/Desktop/beagle_0.3.1-2.cmg
- klik run beagled ~/Desktop/beagle_0.3.1-2.cmg --fg --backend manpages --backend Files
- $ klik run beagle-command ~/Desktop/beagle_0.3.1-2.cmg beagle-command-params
- For example, to shutdown from command line
- $ klik run beagle-shutdown ~/Desktop/beagle_0.3.1-2.cmg
