Is there a way to install packages silently? petget displays two dialogues one to request confirmation then another to report it's done. Indeed 'petget -h' request confirmation then then happily reports 'h has been removed'. In fact a bulk installer which ask for confirmation of installation of a list of (local) pets then reports success and restarts jwm would be ideal. Did you not use something similar for ?
