Nice, though; very nice! I like this new wm; much nicer to look at.
Mine won't install either. Is this the error message you got?

"TAR ERROR

ERROR! ERROR! ERROR!

TAR FAILED!

(MAYBE OUT OF SPACE ERROR)

Unable to install EASY DEBIAN IMAGE FILE"

How did you go about fixing it?

are we limited to the MMC capacity or by a limitation of the image?

I got it working, I guess the first post need to advise that once the file is downloaded, their is no indication that it is extracting. You just need to trust it and wait for the congratulations screen.

Well, you're limited to the size of the image, but you can resize that to fit more, or just use a partition directly if you'd rather. Of course,when using an image file, any filesystem limits on filesize apply as usual, so you may not be able to enlarge it beyond 4GiB.

Yup, i'm making a synced system call which waits for the process to finish before continuing the execution. Didn't expect that maemo will think that the app is hung (My tablet is in RD mode, so i didn't see it either

Holy crap, this is running so nicely now! I haven't tried it since one of the earlier incarnations, and this thing flies.

Nice work!

Be careful with LXDE and the volume control applet. I killed LXDE twice by using this applet.

Okay, hostwin with 3 parameters is back

Usage:
hostwin AppName /usr/bin/program "What should be written inside"

Starts the process asynchronously, watches it and closes itself after it dies. Shows the message too.

hostwin.vala (fast replacement until i post the whole source):
Code:
using GLib;
using Gtk;
using Gdk;
using Hildon;
using Osso;

public string apptitle;
public string exttext;
public string filename;

static void println (string str) {
	stdout.printf ("%s\n", str);
}

public class mainProgram : Hildon.Program {
        private Hildon.Window window;
        private Label label;
        private Pid pid;
        
	construct {
                window = new Hildon.Window ();
		window.set_icon_from_file ("/usr/share/pixmaps/"+apptitle.down()+".png");
                window.destroy += Gtk.main_quit;
                add_window (window);
                
		label = new Label(exttext);
		window.add(label);

                Environment.set_application_name (apptitle);
                window.map_event += activate;
                
                window.show_all();
	}
		
	private bool activate() {
	        string[] buf = new string[1];

		buf[0] = filename;
	        Process.spawn_async( null, buf, null, SpawnFlags.DO_NOT_REAP_CHILD, null, out this.pid );
		ChildWatch.add (this.pid, child_exited);
				
		return false;
	}

	private void child_exited (Pid pid, int status) {
		Gtk.main_quit();
	}

        static int main (string[] args) {
                Osso.Context ctx;

                Gtk.init (ref args);
                
                apptitle = args[1];
                filename = args[2];
                exttext = args[3];
                
                ctx = new Osso.Context(apptitle, "0.2", false, null);
                if (ctx.display_state_on() != Osso.Error.OK)
                    println("Error: Osso Initialize failed.\n");
                    
                var prg = new mainProgram ();
                Gtk.main();
                
                return 0;
        }
}
