Ticket #1386 (closed enhancement: fixed)
[PATCH] Use an entry point scripts for project start scripts
|Reported by:||chrisz||Owned by:||anonymous|
When you package a TG project with python setup.py bdist_egg und Windows and then install the resulting egg with easy_install under Linux, then the start script will be installed under /usr/bin, but its "shebang" line will point to a non-existing Python executable under Windows. When I install the egg on another Windows machine, then the start script will be installed under C:\Python\Scripts\ where it cannot be easily executed. Both problems can be solved by using an "entry point script" for the start script. Since they involve some moving of files, I'll describe the necessary changes in the following instead of uploading a patch file.
