A command line tool I wrote…

Hallo Regulus,

thanks for your reply. The problem has been solved by using Asura (Big wappons :wink: ).

Trying to use the PythonScript i got a errermessage:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “/Users/hans/UnixBins/”, line 19, in ?
from AppKit import NSWorkspace
ImportError: No module named AppKit

Didn’t find a direct downloadlink for AppKit in a quick search …

Will your Script change the icon for a file or folder, or does it really apply a Screenpreview, so if you place it in a layout programm this Preview will be shown?

Have a nice day :slight_smile:


Only the icon. I guess I didn’t understand what you really wanted.

I uploaded a different version written in objective-c instead of python. This should fix your error, so if you’re still interested download it again.

Good luck. :slight_smile:
