While waiting for the a solution to the question it would be useful to be able to stop or close the mediaplayer (music player) or the internet radio through a simple bash shell script.

Could someone please review and improve the following simple bash script? I called it "", it runs as nemo user (perms 755) and just kills the mediaplayer/quickradio processes after a given sleeptime of X minutes. Would be nice, if I knew how to run this shell script from the GUI instead of starting it from the command line on the terminal. Any hint?

if [ $# -eq 0 ] 
sleep $sleeptime 
killall -9 jolla-mediaplayer 
killall -9 harbour-quickradio

Considering that you're both mentioning the other question here, and comment over there, I'd suggest you just close this "not really either a question or a suggestion" and just add it "as is" as an answer/suggestion over at the other question, "music player sleep function with timer".
