Re: [gdm-list] GDM session shutdown - how to execute an script before apps are killed.


You could try writing a wrapper script for gnome-session and call that
from the /usr/share/xsessions/gnome.desktop file.  Then when
gnome-session exits, you can do your cleanup.

I need to automate the execution a command (killall -SIGHUP java) when my
GDM session closes (session logout), but *before* GDM kills all my active
session applications upon logout.

I've been playing with /etc/init.d/gdm and added my command line in the
"stop" code section, and this does get executed, but after my gdm session is
closed, so it didn't help.
I also played with the "PostSession" scripts, but then again, these are
executed after all active user apps have been killed.

Is the process killed when gnome-session exits since it is a child of
gnome-session?  If so, then you'ld have to find a different hook to do
what you want since GDM doesn't know the session exits until
gnome-session is gone.

Can someone shed some light on where / how can I get this (seemingle simple
but so far elusive!) thing to work?
