IceWM Control Panel: GtkPCCard
Screenshots   Help

ONE OF IceWMCP's NEW TOOLS! GtkPCCard is a handy PC Card (PCMCIA) manager, written in Python. It is a Gtk-based re-write of the old tkPCCard program (which used Tk/Tkinter). GtkPCCard is the new, official PC Card manager program for IceWM Control Panel. As of version 2.0 of IceWM Control Panel, the old Tkinter-based tkPCCard is no longer supported, and all new work will be done on the new GtkPCCard. This tool allows you to suspend and safely eject PC CARDS, as well as view detailed information about the cards and their status in a graphical environment. It is useful for laptops and other computers supporting PC CARDS. This program is a frontend for the 'cardctl' program, so the 'cardctl' is required and must be on your PATH.
