I'm trying to set up bginfo for students on our computers. I'd like to display how much free space the studets have in their home directory which is mounted as P. I can't find anything obvious within bginfo to make it display the free space for anything other than C. Has anybody else managed this before who is willing to lend me a hand? :P
I think realistically the only way you could achieve this is by using a script which outputs information to another file (locally), then tell BGInfo to look at the information held within the file and display it on screen.
The problem is BGInfo isn't dynamic, so if users add/delete files the file storage capacity displayed won't change until you log off and then back on again.
