But I like to see when Lingon opens some color or other mark next the active and no active items...
Also the possibility from waking up from sleep modus!
And if possible a quit possibility for what is running via timer...
Glad to pay for more for a significant update.

there are 3 versions of lingon
v3.x (appstore) is unusable, the important features are disabled
v1.x (website) is ok now, but worse than the original
v2.11 (opensource) the best version

i hope the developer recognizes that with a list of xx plists his gui is just a mess. PLEASE GET US BACK A STANDARD LIST VIEW !

FYI, the original open source Lingon 2.1.1 is available here:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/lingon/files/Lingon/2.1.1/

It does work under Mountain Lion.

I only bought one Lingon version back in 2011 through the Mac App Store. I now paid happily the $6.99 upgrade price for Lingon X. It is a good thing when developers publish parallel versions, one 'safe' version on MAS with limited features as required by Apple, and one with the features that are missing in the MAS version for direct purchase by users who want to be free to use those features.

So I upgraded to Lingon 3.1.3, is Lingon X another upgrade I have to pay for?

This is a parallel release for people who cannot use the crippled Mac App store version of Lingon; Lingon 3 is still being shown on Peter Borgs site so I suspect both versions will be developed into the future...

Yes, you have to pay for Lingon X - A higher price tag, much higher than L3... which really doesn't make sense considering earnings that Lingon 3 generated from sales through the Mac App Store had a large percentage of each sale go to Apple.

I believe Lingon 3 was a way to attract attention to "Lingon" and then when so many power users complained it was an opportunity to make Lingon, an open source app for years, a paid app named Lingon X.

Truthfully, I like Lingon, the original. The one that still can be compiled from source and runs perfectly on 10.8.2. I hate the Lingon 3 inspired interface. Of course I can't comment on much more than it's interface because it is non-functional without paying... but even so I prefer the old Lingon interface.

If you would like a link to the source let me know, I'll post a link. I just bought LaunchControl. It is a great app by good, honest, and dedicated developers. Much nicer than Lingon, in any of it's forms, and more functional and powerful while also being easier to use. I do own, Lingon the original from MAS, Lingon 3, but I just refuse to buy Lingon X. LaunchControl is much better imo and that is why I posted this as a comment, not a review. I can't review the app when I can't save anything.

Very happy to see this. I was quite literally about to develop this very same app myself as I was so disgusted of being stuck with v 3 and its limitations.

I immediately bought this to support Peter Borg's move of Lingon 3 out of the Mac App Store (where it was completely crippled by MAS restrictions), and to say thank you and "pay" for his very useful Lingon 2 (which does not now work reliably in ML).

Lingon X is very simple to use and has a very clean UI, with most of the launchd settings that are important to control. You can search through system agents/daemons too. However, if you are a geek/poweruser then I think that the new app LaunchControl offers a much more powerful GUI for launchd and costs the same price. Both apps are excellent, however I suspect I will be using LaunchControl more than Lingon X.

"Lingon X is based on the great Lingon 3"

Does that mean that this is a paid upgrade of Lingon 3?

So, using MAS was a mistake. Should have avoid MAS since the beginning. At least, some people realize that it is better to stay free and independent. Now. I can just buy the app a second time. Not so happy.
There are currently no troubleshooting comments. If you are experiencing a problem with this app, please post a comment.

  • It can also make sure that an app or a script automatically restarts if it crashes. Lingon X can do all this for you and much more.
  • Lets you run things automatically by modifying configuration files for the built-in system function called launchd so the system handles running the jobs so you don't need to have Lingon open after you have saved your job.
  • Released outside Mac App Store to be able to make it as good as possible by including requested features.
  • Still available in Mac App Store for those who still use OS X 10.7 Lion or prefer the comfort and convenience of the Mac App Store.
