Is it already possible to somehow save the value of the "Create Shortcut
on Desktop" checkbox?
I would also like such a patch.
Just FYI, a shortcut with the necessary option (--no-shortcuts) added
can also be used instead of a batch file.
Maybe I could put that shortcut on my desktop instead of the one setup
wants to put there :D
Actually, I decided to have a little look at the code, but fell at the
first hurdle whilst following the instructions in the README, because
./configure complains that -mno-cygwin is not supported (true enough):
configure:3021: checking whether the C++ compiler works
configure:3043: g++ -mno-cygwin -I /usr/include/ncurses conftest.cpp>&5
g++: The -mno-cygwin flag has been removed; use a mingw-targeted cross-compiler\
configure:3047: $? = 1
configure:3085: result: no
configure: failed program was:
WTH? Am I supposed to be using some other compiler, such as gcc-3?
(Note: removing the -mno-cygwin option seems to make configure work, but
the knock on effect is probably not desirable.)
I think the answer is to install and use mingw. In any case,
this kind of makes sense, since most things compiler *under*
cygwin want the cygwin libraries ... but setup.exe needs to
run *before* cygwin is installed ...
