Things like ajaxwrite could be made to open in the standalone Gecko renderer, I believe. Would take some effort, maybe just dropping firefox into kiosk mode is really what you're looking for. R-Kiosk does a good job of it, although you probably want to generate two separate firefox profiles so you don't accidentally wind up turning your main web browser into a kiosk-only experience.
Here is how I wold do this:
1) go to your terminal. type firefox -ProfileManager
2) click "add", then go through the wizard. name it ajaxwrite or something.
3) click tools->addons->get extensions, then search for r-kiosk. install it.
4) create a launcher that does the following:
- Code: Select all
firefox -P <profilename> http://us.ajax13.com/apps/write/content/index.html?doc=
click it, and you should be done.
As for mezzo, it has theoretically been ported over a ubuntu base system- thats what symphony is now- but even its developers say that its pretty buggy. I think- and keep in mind I'm not a dev here, just your average joe giving advice- that probably the best way to get mezzo to play nicely with mint is to get it to play nicely with symphony os, ensure that they release a patched deb, and then try to integrate it with mint. No sense in dividing the developer pool for such simiilar goals.
