I am looking for a simple program, preferably with GUI capabilities, to create small, usable programs.
I would like to compile my multiple scripts (Backup, Cron Job, Task Kills etc.) I have currently sitting as .sh files being executed into a program. I would like to set a basic GUI to perform the tasks of interacting with the end user. I know there was a method in the terminal to have a menu pop out for users to select an item, and then the approrpriate action occur, I do not want this.
A little background on the task at hand.
I need to (for a course), setup a small network of computer's to run a standardized platform. This however cannot be automatized, I need to deliver each PC (as the hardware varies), it's own OS (in this instance, Ubuntu 14.0.4 LTS x64) yet have each PC mimic the other. I plan on achieving this with a small program the "user" can run upon install, and it should perform the following:
- Install a specific set of programs onto the user's PC, and also set a few variables.
- Create the same paths for file storage (/home/NAME/PathI/) and also map network drives
- Create a backup scheme and also a localised server to retain old user profiles (as in, I need to backup /home/user/*)to a server
So the point is made. I want to make a simple-to-use program with basic buttons that can run a silent script in the background. I know on Window's I used Advanced Bat To EXE to create batch scripts to run invisible when a user selected a button- what is the alternative to this in Ubuntu?
It is also important to note that I am not good with any scripting language, so I cannot create an actual program myself. I know, sort of makes this difficult right?
I have done a bit of looking at found the following:
Any help is appreciated!
