    I sucessfuly added it to my PATH but it still doesnt work in VTM
    Dmitry Sapozhnikov
    @o-sdn-o
    I think I realized what could be. You need to go to VTM and click the Shutdown button there in order to restart it
    It remembers the old value of the PATH variable
    JaydenMWSoftwareDevelopment
    @JaydenMWSoftwareDevelopment
    Ok, it works now
    Dmitry Sapozhnikov
    @o-sdn-o
    👌

    @JaydenMWSoftwareDevelopment
    Are you one of the developers?
    Dmitry Sapozhnikov
    @o-sdn-o
    Yes

    VTM works very very well.
    Can this be ran in a linux TTY
    Dmitry Sapozhnikov
    @o-sdn-o
    Thanks!
    This works well on Linux/Ubuntu
    Dmitry Sapozhnikov
    @o-sdn-o
    In Linux, you also need to install Midnight Commander
    sudo apt install mc

    how do I run VTM in WSL
    Dmitry Sapozhnikov
    @o-sdn-o
    Do you have WSL installed already?
    JaydenMWSoftwareDevelopment
    @JaydenMWSoftwareDevelopment
    Yep
    Dmitry Sapozhnikov
    @o-sdn-o
    1. Download binary.tar.gz, see link above
    2. Unpack it somewhere (install.sh seems to be broken)
    3. In the directory where vtm and vtmd unpacked, do the following:
      sudo bash
      mkdir /var/vtm
      cp vtm /var/vtm/
      cp vtmd /var/vtm/
      ln -s /var/vtm/vtm /usr/bin/vtm
      ln -s /var/vtm/vtmd /usr/bin/vtmd
    Must have Ubuntu 20.04 installed
    type vtm to run desktop

    @JaydenMWSoftwareDevelopment
    When I run vtm it does nothing

    @o-sdn-o
    Is there a @vtmd link in the /usr/bin/ directory?

    When I run that ls command it says:
    Dmitry Sapozhnikov
    @o-sdn-o
    rm /usr/bin/vtmd
    And just copy vtmd from archive to /usr/bin
    and vtm too
    JaydenMWSoftwareDevelopment
    @JaydenMWSoftwareDevelopment
    That worked!
    Dmitry Sapozhnikov
    @o-sdn-o
    I need to make a good installation script.
    😊
    JaydenMWSoftwareDevelopment
    @JaydenMWSoftwareDevelopment
    When writing in bash. Just typing linux commands in the script should work most of the time.
    If the commands work. The script should work.
    The install script DOES work.
    Dmitry Sapozhnikov
    @o-sdn-o
    Ok 😎
    JaydenMWSoftwareDevelopment
    @JaydenMWSoftwareDevelopment
    I put the commands you gave me in a script
    Dmitry Sapozhnikov
    @o-sdn-o
    ok
    Only the sudo bash in the script is redundant. The script itself will need to be run with sudo.
    JaydenMWSoftwareDevelopment
    @JaydenMWSoftwareDevelopment
    I know
    I will be adding comments in the script
    Is VTM configurable with a config file?
    Dmitry Sapozhnikov
    @o-sdn-o
    Not yet
    JaydenMWSoftwareDevelopment
    @JaydenMWSoftwareDevelopment
    You could add the ability to set a background
    Dmitry Sapozhnikov
    @o-sdn-o
    I have not yet figured out how to configure it so that it does not depend as much as possible on the platform used
    JaydenMWSoftwareDevelopment
    @JaydenMWSoftwareDevelopment
    If you use a plain text config file the platform used shouldn't matter.
    Dmitry Sapozhnikov
    @o-sdn-o
    The entire interface will be as configurable as possible
    Currently the vtm.conf file from the current directory is used. The name of the region is taken from it.
    JaydenMWSoftwareDevelopment
    @JaydenMWSoftwareDevelopment
    where is this vtm.conf located?
    Dmitry Sapozhnikov
    @o-sdn-o
    It is read directly from the current folder if it is there.
    Right where vtm is typed
    The region name is a text string that is written in the window title. And it's all.
