Hello! So I’m using i3 with my Manjaro and I recently tried using KDE Connect. Some of the built in command such as “Reboot” work fine, but when I tried adding my own command for example “htop” it just wont run.
Htop runs fine in the terminal but nothing happens when I tried launching it in KDE Connect or dmenu
Hi @pfcmqorfoeqijfoqer, and welcome!
htop needs a terminal to run. So, a better option would be to open a terminal and run the
htop command in that, something which most terminal emulators allows you to do.
htop will only be visible in the terminal emulator you launch, not on your mobile device. To achieve that is a whole other board game and not so simple, IIRC.
You first have to open whatever terminal you use, and then show the
htop in it. In KDE Plasma you can use:
konsole -e htop
exo-open --launch TerminalEmulator htop %s
