Launcher

How the Launcher works.

There are a few small applications called launchers which start linux applications from windows. These launchers are small .exe files found in .\andLinux\Launcher\

The Launcher program opens a connection via Ethernet to the small perl script in the VM. This perl script starts the Linux program. It can be found in /usr/local/sbin/launcher.pl

The default host is 192.168.11.150 and default port is 81. To change these defaults, follow these instructions.

/etc/winterm contains the link to /usr/local/sbin/launcher.pl or to /usr/bin/xfce-panel
