http://ubuntuforums.org – Donating my script-let. We use this for watching evening news online and youtube videos while sitting on the living room couch (or in bed). Because of time difference some channels can be offline, or just boring, so this script is a convenient way of flipping through our favorite broadcasts without a keyboard. Code: #!/bin/bash # Flips Firefox URLs just like TV channels. # Operated by wireless USB remote control or through command line. # Script must be called with command line parameter + or - # Flips URL in current Firefox tab to the next/previous (+/-) channel from # a li (Hardware)
