comment How to find name of currently-active network interface?
In my system I see a large number of RX and TX packets for both eth0 and wlan0. I guess these numbers are not cleared when switching between wired/wireless networks? So I can't use that to tell. However, inet addr only appears for the one I'm currently connected to, so that looks like that could work. However, couldn't there be times when both show an IP? Like if I'm connected by a cable to another device but WiFi is to the internet? Is there a way to tell which of the 2 is sending you online?

comment Possible to run a script when something plugged in / disconnected from Mini DisplayPort?
Ok, marking as solved. I think it's just a hardware issue on my end, because I don't see any other reason why the events would not come (unless you have any other idea on what might be wrong)? Otherwise I guess I'll have to resort to polling

I get the exact same as you: "KERNEL[----------] change /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:02.0/drm/card0 (drm)" and "UDEV [----------] change /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:02.0/drm/card0 (drm)" but only the first time I plug it in. When I unplug, nothing. And when I re-plug, again nothing. Do you get the same events when you plug in again after unplugging? So if you plug in 5 times and unplug 5 times, you'll get 10 sets of KERNEL and UDEV? Could it have something to do with Mini DisplayPort vs HDMI?

'udevadm monitor' only works the first time I plug it in. It doesn't report unplug events or subsequent plugging in events. So my custom script doesn't seem to be getting called more than once. Any ideas? I'm on Ubuntu 12.10
