I have a script that starts a new activity for
hamster (activity tracker). This is my current script:
ACTIVITY=`zenity --entry --title "Enter new activity name" --text "New activity name:"` hamster start $ACTIVITY
The problem is I would like the script to remember the last task so I can just run it with ENTER instead of typing the name again. I want it to store the name of it in file. Currently I have made the file manually:
My script so far is the following:
file=/usr/local/bin/hamster-log last=$(<$file) activity=$(zenity --entry --title "Enter new activity name" --text "New activity name:" --entry-text "$last") hamster start "$activity" if [ ! -z "$activity" ]; then destdir=/some/directory/path/filename if [ -f "$file" ]; then echo "$activity" > "$file" fi fi
The weird thing is when I run the script from terminal, it reads the file's content properly, but when I run it using a shortcut it doesn't read the file.
I have set the file's permissions to
