Does anyone have an idea how to run a script when the user logs out.
I tried puting the command in the .bash_logout file, but it doesnt work.
A login shell is one whose first character of argument zero is a -, or
one started with the --login option.
When a login shell exits, bash reads and executes commands from the
file ~/.bash_logout, if it exists.
So, if you run bash and exit, it won't be executed.
If you run bash --login and exit, it will be executed...
Also from the man:
The personal initialization file, executed for login shells
The individual per-interactive-shell startup file
In gnome terminal, there is an option in the profile to force it to a login shell...
