Add this app to your lists
This plug-in for Locale lets you start Linux commands automatically, based on conditions.

It requires the Locale application, which is not free.

If you want to start normal Android applications, please use the Locale Shortcut Plug-in.

If you have root access, this plug-in can also use su to start Linux commands as root.

Users of Tasker who don't have Locale installed please ignore the empty, non-functional menu buttons. Enter your commands and use the back button to save. The help page is the same as the developer's web page.

Recently changed in this version


Requires SD card and Internet permissions again, so your commands can write to the SD card and use the Internet again. The plug-in itself does not use these permissions.

Revert stdin handling of 1.0.1 b/c it caused problems with the dropbear ssh client.


Fix force close on empty command lines.
Use a shell for non-su commands to make quoting etc. work.
Log the commands and their stdout and stderr that are executed. Use "adb logcat" or a log viewer on the phone to see the logs.

    Works great, one caveat
    Seems to turn the screen on if it's off, which is problematic when trying to use it with a Tasker profile that runs when the screen is turned off. Otherwise works great!
