Is there a way to execute a specific script or open a file with a particular program when inserting a USB stick on Ubuntu like the
autorun.inf file in Windows ? If not, is there another way ?
According to the answer I got I have created a file in the USB root folder named
autorun with the above contents:
#!/bin/sh xdg-open myText.txt
I have also created a file named
autorun.inf with the above contents:
autorun.inf file specifies the USB icon.
From the above autorun files only the
autorun.inf seems to work. The
autorun script file, when executed it displays the above message.
Am I doing something wrong or there are some more parameters to be configured in order to run the script ?
P.S: The files myText.txt and icon.ico are placed in the USB root folder.
autorun.inf file mode bits have been set to 755, using :
cd /path/to/usbFolder chmod 755 autorun chmod 755 autorun.inf
