Projects / Otak


Otak provides a visual interface to command line programs that don't have one, that allows users to select arguments from a menu. For example, it can be used as an address book program with Mutt (the default), or as a phone book with SMS sending software, or even as a list of hosts for SSH or FTP.

        Release Notes: This release fixes a bug that could cause loss of data. This release (as well as previous releases) assumes, out of the box, that baseconfig file is in /etc/otak/baseconfig. But only this release preserves data that it doesn't understand. For example, if you had custom fields in ~/.otak/baseconfig that were absent from /etc/otak/baseconfig, they were lost.
