My autistic son uses an Ubuntu computer to surf the web, watch videos and listen to music. He watches some videos and turns them too loud all night. I wrote a script which turns down the volume periodically using the
I then added this to the Start-up Applications, but he found that and disabled the scripts and reboot the machine. Then I tried calling it in
rc.local but cannot get this script which should run forever to work there.
Also I could not get it to work in
/etc/rc3.d either. Maybe it is the script, but I cannot seem to get this to work, and there does not seem to be a way to lower the maximum sound output limit. Unless there is a way to remove the "Start-up Applications" from the gear menu, I have to go the hidden script route.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
