How to use ambience to triggering a shell? My objective is when I set a new Ambience, my script is launched to enable/disable wifi/bluetooth/airplane. my first intenssion was to use situations app command to launch the script however the command (sh /home/nemo/script/ do nothing. when I launch the same command in terminal the script do the job.

PS : I have read different old post related, but the solution don't work anymore

Try the command using only the path /home/nemo/script/

Remember that for several actions, it may be necessary to setup sudo because non-privileged users are not allowed to do such things.

Once set up correctly, this approach works perfectly fine on my Xperia X.

@Edz, I try but it's not work.

@ziellos, if I launch the script with terminal it's work (enable/disable wifi). Or I must write sudo in situations? May I forget some thing?

care to share your script @kayoux ?

Sorry, I've misread your question. You want to launch the script when an ambience is chosen and not launch it from terminal.
