How to run programs at exiting the graphical desktop
 
Dear friends,

How to run programs at exiting the graphical desktop ?

I know that I can put commands in ~/.bash_logout to run programs at the end of a login shell, but it does not work because my graphical session (KDE/Gnome) are started by a graphical desktop manager, and I never got a true login shell in that way.

Also, I don't want that every single shell runs a logout script at exit; only when I close the window manager.

any hints or ideas are welcome,

If you (can) use Gdm, check out /etc/X11/gdm/PreSession and /etc/X11/gdm/PostSession.

Hi unSpawn !

Thanks for the hint and sorry the delay. I was busy at work and just now I had some time to play with my system.

Yes, you're right. In FC5 the file is /etc/gdm/PostSession/Default which is executed for every user at exit of the window manager.

I just had to add some code to execute a user script .
Code:

if [ -x ${HOME}/.postsession ]; then
      ${HOME}/.postsession
fi

Thank you !
