Custom action on events

Asked by Luca Trombin

Since as you said many times there are some Linux / Desktop env. variations which does not work correctly, I would like to have the possibility to enter a script path to be triggered in case of an event happens (i.e. timekpr triggers my script which lock or do whatever I want to the user).

What do you think about this?

By the way: I have a problem with lock screen not working in Linux Mint (Cinnamon), do you have any suggestion how to investigate and eventually resolve this issue?

By the way, I'm also a Senior Solution Architect with kids ... hence if you want we can collaborate on your project to enhance it, I really like this version you created.

Well, the only time timekpr could trigger something currently, is when time is about to end.

That could be doable to configure with not much coding (the user interface part would consume the most of the time), but could be very not friendly to user.
On the other hand, regular users can use pre-defined actions :)

As for Cinamon and lockscreen, well, there are some desktops that do not fully work with providing a status of screen locker or they have their own different implementation.
I could try to check what’s up at some free time, but please provide a link to ISO download for exactly the version you are using.
