I do have a small problem: I want to run unison before i log out of kde, so that my files
are synchronized automatically. I created a .desktop file
and placed it in /.kde4/shutdown/. The .desktop file is specified by the command:
unison myprofile -batch
I tried it, but it seems, that this doesn´t work, because nothing was synchronized after
login in again. Although in the systemsettings in the
category autostart, my .desktop is listed and set to logout. Any suggestions.
ps.: I already tried it with a shell-scrpit, which i also placed in the shutdown folder,
but this also didn´t work…
I do something similar, but I used bash scripts instead of .desktop files to run rsync on
The key was that I needed to have two scripts: One that does the work (runs rsync) the
other was a wrapper that starts up konsole with my first script.
This is the script I have in my ~/.kde4/shutdown/myrsync_wrapper.sh.
konsole --nofork --hide-menubar --hide-tabbar --geometry "1680x1050+0+0" -e
When I log out or shutdown, KDE runs the myrsync_wrapper.sh script. A konsole is then
started with dimensions 1680x1050. This forces the window to
fill my whole screen.
If I am logging out and I do not want to run the script, say after an update to KDE, I
simply press CTRL+C in konsole and the script exits and KDE
logs out as per usual.
Hope this helps,
