Is anyone aware of any QT task schedulers?
There’s qps which uses Qt library
qps is a process, not a task manager - so no, i suggest to use just featherpad to manage tasks - should be easy. Ok, vi or nano would fit better, but featherpad uses Qt.
Not sure what you mean with “task scheduler”. I’m using znotes, it’s old but I like it and it has the feature of to-do lists.
perhaps he refers to something to manage cron tasks?
Sort of. I want to be able to schedule things to run after I boot the desktop. An exact time is not ideal.
hey - featherpad is a very capable editor to modify or create cron jobs or systemd-timers
autostart section in session settings
If you mean you need to handle the exact time but the situation isn’t ideal ( = my mind reading),
remind is a powerful and reliable tool: “A sophisticated calendar and alarm program.” Once you master it, you won’t need another program of this kind.
Sorry for not being clear.
That is what I need.
The thing is that what you’re asking is not a task scheduler, its a manager for autostart programs/scripts. This can be also be configured in your ~/.Xsessionrc file which is what I use. Why? Because I don’t want to rely so much in the DE.
It doesn’t seem to run the script I wrote. All my script does is scp some files to back them up. It doesn’t error, it just doesn’t update the files. Here is the script: $ cat /hdd-storage/storage/scripts/router_backup.sh
#!/bin/bash ROUTER='192.168.1.2' TARGET=/hdd-storage/storage/backups/router/ mkdir $TARGET ssh root@$ROUTER 'nvram save /mnt/LOGS/router.cfg' # copy all the log files + router configuration # bandwidth_monitoring*.gz, ip_traffic_monitoring*.gz. messages # scp -p root@$ROUTER:/mnt/LOGS/* $TARGET
Launching it after (manually by double click) works?
-v Verbose mode. Causes ssh to print debugging messages
about its progress. This is helpful in debugging connection, authentication, and configuration problems. Mul‐
tiple -v options increase the verbosity. The maximum
man scp -v Verbose mode. Causes scp and ssh(1) to print debugging
messages about their progress. This is helpful in debugging connection, authentication, and configuration
problems. nuf said cheers Alf
Nothing happens when I click on anything in the LXQt Session Settings.
When I click on the script from a file manager. It seems to from a Terminal
>> was invented before and &> too
Just choose “execute” and look if the script itself is working. Sure that /hdd-storage/… is the right path?
ok - i’m a fan of Candy Dulfer - so please put a “echo foo > ~/lilly_was_here.txt” into the script - it the file is present after execute it in your home dir the script was running.
LXQt definitely doesn’t have and has never had any problem with running scripts at startup – otherwise my scripts wouldn’t run
