LGOGDownloader 2.21 git d978498

Updating the local cache for lgogdownloader in preparation for an orphan-check yielded some games not found (or, rather access forbidden 403), more details see https://github.com/Sude-/lgogdownloader/issues/47):

HTTP ERROR: 403 (.....)
Found nothing in https://api.gog.com/downloader2/game/interstate76/installer_win_en

- Interstate 76
- Kings Quest 1+2+3
- Kings Quest 4+5+6
- M.A.X + M.A.X 2
- Patrician 1+2
- The Penumbra Collection
- Pirates Gold +
- Wallace & Gromitt (not longer buyable)

To my knowledge, none of these games have been unbundled yet. The cache for my other 600+ games did update fine and I can initiate a download of these games from my account page without a problem.
I got tired of screwing around with copy-pasting URLs into shell aliases every time an update came around, so I spent the last two days writing a little PyGTK-based frontend for lgogdownloader which adds support for gogdownloader:// URIs.

Be aware that, for extras, it assumes you have an lgogdownloader build new enough to have --download-file.

Really, Really snazzy piece of software. Both thumbs up.

That's pretty neat! It's fun to see my progress bar in a screenshot there :) In general, do you prefer PyGTK to PySide for example?

It's more that I'm low on time and experienced with it. Using PyGTK was my way of "just getting it done" without having to choose between PySide (no Qt 5 support), PyQt (Still gotta refresh my understanding of the API and what's the point in MITing code written against a GPLed API?), and PyGI (I'm trying to avoid explicitly requiring GTK+ 3.x, given what a mess it's becoming).

As for the progress bar, it IS very nice. Wait until I have time to work on lgogd_uri again. I want to complement it with a reworked queue tab that sets in-progress/success/fail icons rather than popping entries out and which remembers them across restarts.

(Given that the official downloader doesn't seem to Just Work™ by remembering queued downloads and resuming them after restart, that should start to make my frontend superior to it.)

In the hope that I can interest as many users as possible, I just pushed a couple of usability improvements for the lgogd_uri install process:

1. An install.sh that should always either Just Work™ or give actionable instructions
2. A detailed troubleshooting guide.

With the more novice end of the spectrum better served, I now need to ask those with more specialized requirements which features leave you still preferring the command-line interface over lgogd_uri.
