qprogram-starter: A program starter tool
qprogram-starter - A program starter tool
qprogram-starter is a simple Qt4 program to start a program or process.
If you like with the options to set a start date, to log output and
errors, and to shutdown after finish.
This program uses qdbus to send a shutdown request to the gnome- or
kde-session-manager. If it won't do gnome-power-cmd or gnome-power-
cmd.sh will be used. When this also fails then qdbus will send the
shutdown request to HAL or ConsoleKit (note that when sending the
request to HAL or ConsoleKit the session will never be saved). And if
this won't do as well, the sudo shutdown command will be used. In this
case you need root-rights, so one can to do the following:
Post the following in a terminal: "EDITOR=nano sudo -E visudo" and add
this line: "* ALL = NOPASSWD:/sbin/shutdown" whereas * replaces the
username or %groupname.
The configurationfile (and logfiles) is located at ~/.qprogram-starter
