Re: Empty Trash Can Sound[solved]

Hi ToZ, I did some tests:

 sleep 1 && ls -l ~/.local/share/Trash/files | wc -l
1

deleted a file:

 sleep 1 && ls -l ~/.local/share/Trash/files | wc -l
2

emptied trash:

 sleep 1 && ls -l ~/.local/share/Trash/files | wc -l
1

so it seems to be counting and working.

ls -l ~/.local/share/Trash/files
total 0

then deleted a file

 ls -l ~/.local/share/Trash/files
total 44
-rw-rw-r-- 1 shamu shamu 43327 Nov 20  2021 11.png

it sows 44 files?? I deleted only 1.
then emptied trash:

 ls -l ~/.local/share/Trash/files
total 0

And then:

 gio info Trash://
display name: Trash
name: /
type: directory
uri: trash:///
attributes:
  standard::type: 2
  standard::name: /
  standard::display-name: Trash
  standard::icon: user-trash, user-trash-symbolic
  standard::content-type: inode/directory
  standard::symbolic-icon: user-trash-symbolic, user-trash
  id::filesystem: trash:
  trash::item-count: 0

Now I should wait until the problem comes and run the test again

Re: Empty Trash Can Sound[solved]

Maybe try the other script, the one with inotifywait. It will only trigger when a file gets deleted and is not dependent on directory file counts.

Re: Empty Trash Can Sound[solved]

I did. Installed inotify-tools, edited your script, after a reboot it did not play the sound.

Try running the script manually in a terminal window. See if that makes a difference.

Re: Empty Trash Can Sound[solved]

I did "trash.sh" in the terminal,

trashsoundDEBUG: Lock failed, check for existing process and/or lock file and delete - exiting.

Re: Empty Trash Can Sound[solved]

Is the other trash.sh instance running? If so, kill it and delete the /tmp/.trashsound.$USER.lockfile file. Then run the script again and test.

Re: Empty Trash Can Sound[solved]

I moved the other file out of the way, how do I kill it? Uncheck in startup, reboot? Deleted temp file,

 trash.sh
trashsoundDEBUG: Locking succeeded

That would do it, yes.

Deleted temp file,

 trash.sh
trashsoundDEBUG: Locking succeeded

Is this the new script? If so, try your delete test again.

Re: Empty Trash Can Sound[solved]

Did the sound play?

Edit: and if not, did you change the path and name of the sound file in the script?

Re: Empty Trash Can Sound[solved]

If you:

play /home/shamu/My-sounds/trash-empty.wav

...in a terminal window, does a sound play?

Can you also try this version of the script:

#!/bin/bash
# requires inotify-tools

echo "starting..." > /tmp/te.log
DIR="$HOME/.local/share/Trash/files"

# make sure that only one instance of this script is running per user
lockfile=/tmp/.trashsound.$USER.lockfile
if ( set -o noclobber; echo "locked" > "$lockfile") 2> /dev/null; then
   trap 'rm -f "$lockfile"; exit $?' INT TERM EXIT
   echo "trashsoundDEBUG: Locking succeeded" >&2
echo "trap set" >> /tmp/te.log

	inotifywait -q -m -r -e delete $DIR | while read D E F; do 
		echo "caught delete - playing sound" >> /tmp/te.log
		play /home/shamu/My-sounds/trash-empty.wav
	done

# can't create lockfile - notify user and quit
else
   echo "trashsoundDEBUG: Lock failed, check for existing process and/or lock file and delete - exiting." >&2
   exit 1
fi

Start it up, delete a file then empty trash, the post back the results of /tmp/te.log.

Hi ToZ, I'm sorry for keeping you for hours yesterday. You probably had other things to do, it's a little embarrassing...but it's a new day, if you have some more ideas, I'm gladly listening, thanks for all your help!

Re: Empty Trash Can Sound[solved]

No worries - I enjoy the challenges. Try this version of the script instead:

#!/bin/bash
# requires inotify-tools

DIR="$HOME/.local/share/Trash/info"

# make sure that only one instance of this script is running per user
lockfile=/tmp/.trashsound.$USER.lockfile
if ( set -o noclobber; echo "locked" > "$lockfile") 2> /dev/null; then
   trap 'rm -f "$lockfile"; exit $?' INT TERM EXIT
   echo "trashsoundDEBUG: Locking succeeded" >&2

	inotifywait -q -m -r -e delete $DIR | while read D E F; do 
		play /home/shamu/My-sounds/trash-empty.wav
	done

# can't create lockfile - notify user and quit

Re: Empty Trash Can Sound[solved]

A couple of suggestions:
1. Change the play line to read:

play /home/shamu/My-sounds/trash-empty.wav >> /tmp/t.log 2>&1

...and try again. When it stops working, post back the contents of /tmp/t.log.
2. Try using another command instead of play - like mplayer.

I did try mplayer about a year ago, it didn't make any difference. I will try the play line trick. Thanks

Re: Empty Trash Can Sound[solved]

Changing that line didn't work. There is no  /tmp/t.log file. But there is a "config-err-mhuVFX" file, which is empty, I don't remember seeing it before but I could be wrong.



Sorry, I screwed up the line first. It does work now, and there is a /tmp/t.log file:

Re: Empty Trash Can Sound[solved]

Another version to try. This one will also display a notification bubble when the sound should play. If the bubble shows up and the sound doesn't play, then its an issue with the sound:

#!/bin/bash
# requires inotify-tools

DIR="$HOME/.local/share/Trash/info"

# make sure that only one instance of this script is running per user
lockfile=/tmp/.trashsound.$USER.lockfile
if ( set -o noclobber; echo "locked" > "$lockfile") 2> /dev/null; then
   trap 'rm -f "$lockfile"; exit $?' INT TERM EXIT
   echo "trashsoundDEBUG: Locking succeeded" >&2

	inotifywait -q -m -r -e delete $DIR | while read D E F; do 
		play /home/shamu/My-sounds/trash-empty.wav
                notify-send -i user-trash "Trash" "emtpy-trash sound should play"
	done

# can't create lockfile - notify user and quit
else
   echo "trashsoundDEBUG: Lock failed, check for existing process and/or lock file and delete - exiting." >&2
   exit 1

Re: Empty Trash Can Sound[solved]

Wow! Thanks! I will play with it. I'm running 2 distros on the same disk, Linux Lite and Mint Xfce. (cannot decide which one to keep permanently, they almost identical and running great) I will use one script in one and the other script in the other distro. We'll see what happens...we are getting somewhere...
Thanks ToZ, I will report back to you soon. Have a wonderful night!!!

Re: Empty Trash Can Sound[solved]

I'm still wondering what can cause a script to stop working after some time? Like you said ToZ, a script should run from start to end, forever. So what can it be??? Maybe KBar has some ideas, but he's been silent...I guess, this crazy "no sense" trash empty sound project is not his style...
