I am new to KDE and would like to make shortcuts that run default applications. For instance, I like CTRL-ALT-I to open my default browser. I have found that I can create a custom shortcut directly to a specific browser, but I would like it to respect the default browser.
I came across this script a while back that i found. What i want to do is edit the script to create a default web page in /var/www/html when a new user is added through the script. What the script does now is adds a user and sets a password for the user.
What possible way (either through a combination of python or c or some other language) could i add to the shell script to do this?
I am setting a guest account that will run a browser opening a locally stored web page, the web page will be a nice little welcome thing. I also want it to have options to open other apps from that page, as I want to limit every thing else to basically nothing. so I'm guessing it will need to launch a bash script with a command for the app.
I am having a problem connecting with the wifi at work, because in order to connect to it, it should automatically bring up a page on your browser where you have to click "accept." It worked when I got it for Christmas, but somehow now the first page that comes up when I open my browser is "about:blank"-- blank page, meaning I can't connect to wifi.
I'm downloading here a minimal browser for presentations.
I wrote a script that starts the browser, sleep for few seconds and then kills the browser and load another page.
How can I modify the code to start the browser in the background(e.g. minimize), load the new page, and then kill the other browser to show the new page?
