Re: Automating actions on network conditions




Hm. I am admin, but trying to launch, e.g. a web browser from NM's global 
context is no small thing. I suppose I could write a simple program to listen 
for dbus events and check for the current network state on startup. Not as 
elegant as I'd been hoping for, but it should work.
