Local and user-defined applications

Defining local commands is particularly important as they enable the definition of applications which can be launched within a shell. This feature assumes knowledge about the commands that average users may not have.

Make sure that the user is authorized to start the application. All commands are executed by the UNIX user eLux (UID = 65534).

Some of the local applications are predefined. If an application is missing, you can define your own application or command via the Custom option of the Local Application list-field.

Error messages will not be shown. If your command does not include an X client application, no messages are shown during execution. For this reason, we recommend first running the command within an XTerm session for testing purposes.
