Yes, you can use while loop with
Quote:
idleTime=$(xprintidle)
that detects idle time, runs mplayer with video with repeat option and kills it when mouse is moved (idle time too low), i have similar script.

Hello,
Please, can you give me a detail of the script?
You say that the script runs mplayer..
How and what parameters do you send to play the file?

Thanks
