I would like to write a script that would open a excel file periodically after certain intervals. How do I do it?
I assume you want to open the Excel file on Ubuntu with the associated application (LibreOffice Calc, gNumeric, etc.)
The script would then look like:
#!/bin/bash while true; do xdg-open /home/arp/Documents/periodic.xls sleep 600; # sleeps for 10 minutes or 600 seconds, adjust as desired done
You can adjust the filename and the sleep time above.
