I have six shell scripts I start when I log in. The shell scripts kick off Python scripts which go out and scrape various things from the net like news headlines, weather info etc., which I add to my desktop via conky.
Problem is starting all of these shell scripts each time is a real pain.
I have looked for and tried some things but nothing seems to work.
Can someone here shed some light on the best way to do this pls. By the way I can't combine the shell scripts in a single file because they all 'sleep' for a different duration after the initial command is applied.
-- Edit (adding the following comments) --
All of the scripts have the following format:
#!/bin/bash while true; do python /home/scott/debkaget.py > /home/scott/debka.txt sleep 120 done
Could that be added to the profile? I need the sleep aspect to it. I am running KDE 4.9.
