Hi, everybody,

I wrote a small C tool for patching .desktop files to make apps be launched
via fsoraw (to prevent automatic screen dimming and suspending).

It can be used in various distribution enhancing scripts or just to make
freshly installed app fsoraw-enabled.

Typical usage - allocating Display resource for Mokomaze:

  root at om-gta02:~# appraw -d mokomaze
  * Analyzing input file:
  * 'Exec' field found:
  * Patched 'Exec' field:
  Exec=fsoraw -r Display -- mokomaze
  * File modified successfully.

Changes can be easyly reverted by 'appraw -r mokomaze'. See 'appraw --help'
for details.
Source code is maintained on github [1]. Check Downloads section [2] for
installation package.
