maybe this isn't the correct subforum, if so I apologise.
When I plug in my USB camera, some software starts up (actually, a window asking what application I want to launch). I wish to change this behaviour so it automatically runs a script file (a la this
clever chap) -- but I don't want that to happen if I plug in my external hard drive (just the camera).
For the sake of argument, let's say my script is at "/home/my/camera_script
" and that it works just fine when executed manually.
Now, I do have a "/etc/hotplug/usb/
" directory, but there's nothing in it yet.
Any guidance how to set up pc so my script is triggered when my USB camera is plugged in?
