    redirect output boot script

    hy,
    i have a python script. It works.
    example:
    Code:
    #!/usr/bin/env python
    print "hello world"
    i have put this script in the startup applications (system -> preference -> startup application)

    i don't know if this script work at the boot. there is a way to redirect the output in a file?

    This is my /home/user/.config/autostart/script.desktop file:

    Code:
    [Desktop Entry]
    Type=Application
    Exec=python /home/user/.scrscript/.script.py &> /home/user/log.txt
    Hidden=false
    NoDisplay=false
    X-GNOME-Autostart-enabled=true
    Name[it_IT]=example
    Name=example
    Comment[it_IT]=python 
    Comment=python

    Re: redirect output boot script

    This doesn't work for me (12.04)


    Code:
    [Desktop Entry]
    Type=Application
    Exec=firefox file:///opt/peace/index.html?datamode=7 > /var/log/peace/firefox.log 2>&1 &
    Hidden=false
    NoDisplay=false
    X-GNOME-Autostart-enabled=true
    Name[en_NZ]=firefox
    Name=firefox
    Comment[en_NZ]=
    Comment=
    Code:
    ls -l /var/log
    
    ...
    drwxrwxrwx 2 usr1              usr1    4096 Apr 20 20:27 peace
    ...
    I tried with and without trailing ampersand (which is assumed anyway as it's startup apps are backgrounded tasks)

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks

    Well, firefox writing nothing on standard output when starting up is normal. What are you trying to log?

    I use window.dump from firefox and it outputs fine when run directly from a shell. Fair point, but I do expect valid output from firefox in this instance. Thanks
