Hi,

I'm new in to programming with the Automator but I try to create a simple start button for KeePass2 for my mac.

I try to realise it with a shell-skript in the Automator tool.

At the moment my code is like that

cd
cd ~/Documents/KeePass-2
mono KeePass.exe

If I save the File as a program and start it KeePass will open but the Skrip is endlessly running in the background.

I tried some extra commands at the end of the code but nothing would work.
These are the two things I tried
1) exit 0
and
2) > /dev/null 2>&1

I hope somebody can help me.

This works fine for me:

cd /Users/robertschulz/Dropbox/KeePass
MONO=/Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Versions/Current/Commands/mono
$MONO ./KeePass.exe >~/keepass.out.log 2>~/keepass.err.log &
exit 0


so honestly: i think your script mainly missed the ampersand '&' at the lines end to fork the command to the background.
Next we should be sure not to leave any input or output stream connected. I think stdin is not connected. You had the right thing already: i like to save the output to some logfile.
exit 0 is really not needed - i like it explicit.
