How to execute some command on GDM Login and Logout?


Hi,

How we can configure a script to be executed automatically on GDM login, as well as on logout? Actually I want to synchronize two directoris on login and logout using unison ($unison ~/dir1 ~/dir2 -batch). The command works correctly from command line.

I tried adding the command to following files, but no luck:

1- .bash_profile: Its not executed when logging in through GDM.
2- .gnomerc: Its executed on GDM Login
3- ?? :Which script executes on Logout?


Any ideas?

Put it in ~/.xinitrc - that's the file that X Window executes before it starts.

I do not want to execute the command on Xwdinows startup, but only when a user logs in through GDM, and then second time when he/she logs out of gnome.

Thanks for any further hint.
