Re: Linux version of full Dashboard
GWT isn't platform-specific, the same version runs on any website. The only requirement is that some of the widgets make server calls, which requires a servlet-container like Tomcat.

In looking at the zip the only thing that you might need to do is convert the Dashboad-compile.cmd file to Dashboad-compile.sh, which should be fairly straight-forward.

Re: Linux version of full Dashboard
I just built an empty project / application and pulled the Dashboard code into it. It's been so long since i worked on Windows that I hardly know what I'm looking at when I see the .cmd extension.

There was also a problem with case-sensitivity coming from Windows to Linux. The googleSearch module has a capital in the main module's inherit element, and then the actual path doesn't have a capital, or vice versa.

After that, it's up and running.
