You can't get (any) iphone apps to work. You CAN access web sites especially designed for the iphone and that check the browser user agent. For that all that you need is to know the URL to the web site.

Hi
I have a problem with bookmarks not saving - is there anything I can check?
I am sure others would have mentioned it.

I mean bookmarks saving after exiting Macuco (0.0.16)

Since I still don't have a N950 yet and I can't imagine, after so many adventures, leaving my trustworthy friend maemo behind I decided to try something new: save web sites shortcuts to the applications menu (like the n950).

It is actually very simple since macuco already supports a dbus signal to open a web page.

I haven't and don't know if I will implement this functionality on macuco but, since it is not hard to do manually, here it goes an example on how to add a "Google+" icon to your applications menu.

Using your favorite editor just create on your n900 the file:
Code:
/home/user/.local/share/applications/hildon/googleplus.desktop
with this text:
Code:
[Desktop Entry]
Version=1.0
Type=Application
Name=Google Plus
Exec=dbus-send --print-reply --dest=com.crochik.Macuco / com.crochik.Macuco.open string:"http://plus.google.com" boolean:true
Icon=macuco2
X-Window-Icon=macuco2
X-HildonDesk-ShowInToolbar=true
X-Osso-Type=application/x-executable
Terminal=false
Notes:
  • If you want a nice icon you can save anywhere and include the full path to the icon on the "Icon=" line
  • Everything from "Exec=" to " boolean:true" must be on the same line.

(Jaffa: thank you for making this possible!)

i tried to set a png file, but it didn't work, my line says:
Icon=/home/user/MyDocs/.images/google.png

What do i do wrong?

EDIT:
It works for a desktop shortcut, but not for the menu icon.

I've been trying to use it for browsing Google+, and whenever I try to post anything the circles always fail to load.

Is it just me?

Just spotted this. Excellent suggestion. I'd been generating wgt's to varying success for certain sites that weren't working well on microb ; and was always niggling for Macuco to do this - i.e. with the excellent rendering (larger fonts etc) that it offers.

Saves me a lot of time and removes the need to qtwrt now.

Thanks

I haven't tested in a while but I remember not being able to access/edit my circles. If I am not mistaken is the only thing that didn't actually work. Let me know if you find others - not that I can do much but would be nice to know.
