Guys, i need your help..
I want to run my script from qml file. I know it's possible. Coderus told me to check the sailfish-utilities as example and I did it. But I still can't get to work my button...
For example, I created page with slider and button, slider working and save parameter, and when I press on button it should start my script with command that included slider parameter. But it always show me message "failed" :(
I also tried to create identical copy of Lipstick restart button and changed only to my script and it also show me message "failed".
And yes I checked my script it work and permission is correct... I even added content of my script instead content of Lipstick restart script and in this case original button of lipstick restart working and run my script....
This is a reason that I don't understand why my button not working even it copy of original Lipstick restart button.

Maybe I need to run any specific command to activate it somehow before it will start working ? Really don't know...

Can someone, who understand, check my files and fix them if needed PLEEEEEEASE :)
Folders "pages" and "entries" should be inside /usr/share/jolla-settings

EDIT (25.12.15):
I found answer by myself :)
Look in to tools.js file in my zip and change this line:

exports.restartSpeaker = make_system_action("restart_speaker");

to this one:

exports.restartSpeaker = function(msg, ctx) {
    var os = require("os");
    os.system("/bin/sh", ["/usr/share/jolla-settings/pages/openrepos-testbutton/"]);

and button starts working ! That's all :)

Thanks, but it not really what I need (i think... already saw this links). Also I'm not programmer to understand all this stuff...
As I said a good example in my case is a sailfish-utilities app. Just look and see how it start scripts, for example Lipstick restart... And after this see my files...

Is it a state secret?

No :), just don't have time now to update my first post normally..
The quick answer is, change this line in .js file:
exports.restartSpeaker = make_system_action("restart_speaker"
To this:
exports.restartSpeaker = function(msg, ctx) { var os = require("os"); os.system("/bin/sh", ["/usr/share/jolla-settings/pages/openrepos-testbutton/"]); };

@schturman, could you test if that script runs in background and will not be paused by display turned off?

I don't need it in my case.. I need to run only one command from my script, once...
If your script include loop and sleep command, as far as I know sleep command paused in deep screen sleep.
