    hook for login


    I've wrote a script to set the brightness level using the webcam to sense the ambient light, right now I'm using the pm sleep hook to call it, figure I'm in a new area if I'm coming out of suspend, is there a hook for login (whether a fresh login or just unlocking the screen)?
    Thx, Tom

    it depends on your distro/display manager, but you can check out the /etc/X11/xinit dir for some scripts that can be configured to be executed upon login.

    if you are using xscreensaver, you can use the -watch command to write screensaver activity to a log file, then have a daemon read your logfile, looking for unlocking activity.

    I was looking for something that works with BOTH screensaver login and well as straight login, and preferably some user only way (like .bashrc for example, which I guess I could use for login and do the screensaver separately).
