I write this line to copy an image to my local home dir
cp .cache/wallpaper/0_4_1280* .image.jpg
and all is well ....so I think it would be great if terminal would do this on start. So I decide to put the line in the box to run custom command instead of shell ....
and of course no matter how i alter the line Terminal will not stat the dir and complains that dir/file doesnt exist when we know it does. If i put ls -a in the box it shows the .cache folder but will not go into it.
I'm starting to think I'm going about this all wrong .
So now that I've shown what I'm after, what I tried and what happens this is ....
What I want to Happen
When I click to launch terminal I would like it to execute this command and then restart at the regular prompt.
What i think i need to do is write some short bash script that will detach gnome terminal and then execute the copy command and then restart or reattach the terminal window.
One more thing that might be an issue , (might be the one thing that is holding this all up , i dunno) is that the star is there in the copy command because the file changes (it is in the .cache folder) so the first part is always the same but the rest of the filename changes as it rotates in the .cache. Which is why i want to constantly copy the new image to a known filename, because it changes..... and i need to reference it.
Its seems so easy ....yet I cant make it go ...I don't get it
