Let's have an easy example:
I run a script which is setting a program either to mode "on" (= 1) or to mode "off" (= 0). The script is getting actuated by a simple click on the regarding
The script looks like that:
#!/bin/bash DESKT=/home/user/program.desktop if [ $(systemctl --user status program | grep -c running) = 0 ]; then systemctl --user start program echo "Icon=program_active" >> "$DESKT" echo "Name=Program working" >> "$DESKT" else systemctl --user stop program echo "Icon=Program_inactive" >> "$DESKT" echo "Name=Program stopped" >> "$DESKT" fi
The .desktop-file looks like that:
[Desktop Entry] Type=Application Name=Program Exec=program Icon=program-inactive
My question now is:
If I switch on my program by actuating the
.desktop-file, the name of the
.desktop-file is getting changed to "Program working" what is fully correct! Unfortunately, the previous icon ("
program_inactive") doesn't get changed to the now needed icon "
Instead of replacing the inactive-icon with the correct active-icon, there will be written a completely new line with "
Icon=program_active" instead of replacing the existing line "
Icon=program_inactive". Because of that, there are now two lines with "
Icon=blabla" what is completely useless of course.
What do I have to do to replace the existing icon-line instead of writing a useless new line? Thanks a lot for your ideas!
