.kde/Autostart bash scripts "file not found"
Hi. I posted this question over at KDE-Forum and waited a week and nobody replied, so I'm trying it here.
I'm a bit confused about how to use bash scripts in the /.kde/Autostart folder. I've tried a few different ones and they all have the same problem which is that upon booting I'm greeted with a dialogue that says "file not found."
I started off with a simple bash script to set up samba shares. The scipt works fine if I fire it up in a console. I thought that perhaps part of the problem was that it required root priviledges, so I changed user and group ownership of the script from a regular user to root, but that didn't change anything.
I also tried putting the actual script in another folder like the desktop and just running a link to it from the /.kde/Autostart folder, but that didn't work either.
Well, perhaps that's a bad place for samba configs for some reason. So, next I tried putting in a script that didn't need root. This one worked just fine from a console without being root. I used a script that started the cli version of streamripper and it works from the command line no problem, but in /.kde/Autostart it gives me the same message on start up "your_script file not found".
So, these scripts work in a shell, but not in Autostart. However, I did notice something else that should be a helpful clue to someone who knows better. That is, if I put these scripts on the desktop and click them, I get the same error "your_script file not found" That being the case, I bet this is a really simple problem about executing files withinin KDE as opposed to something specific to /.kde/Autostart that somebody can explain.
