Login script does not run in notifications

I have a rexx routine I like to run at login. A lady's voice tells me the date and time of login. I set up the command in
System Settings > Notifications > Event Source pull down > Plasma Workspace > login
Under login I enter the command:
/home/rob/Dropbox/shared_rcss_complex/create_sound_file.sh

The script calls a rexx routine by the same name and works fine in Konsole and works if invoked under
System Settings>Startup and Shutdown as a script file at startup. Under Event Notifications and Actions, Plasma Workspace, Login I have checked log to a file. Nothing is logged. If I check Play a Sound, Oxygen-Sys-Log-In-Short.ogg is played at login.

In summary Play a Sound works, Log to a File does not, and the sound script does not play sound but it does
play the sound if invoked as a startup script. Can anyone suggest how to get this working so I can get a log
file created? It worked fine under Linux Mint 17.3 KDE and Linux Mint 18.3 KDE but not KDE Neon 5.14-5.

I realize this is kind of a nit, but it works in a different distribution and KDE is my go to environment because it is so customizable.

I see that all the system settings notifications are stored in
/home/user/.config/plasma_workspace.notifyrc
I added a simple Kdialog popup, a sound, and a log to file request to the gui for a logout-cancel and it loaded the following lines to that file:
Code: Select all
[Event/cancellogout]
Action=Sound|Popup|Logfile|Execute
Execute=/home/rob/Dropbox/shared_rcss_complex/checkn_on_you.sh
Logfile=file:///home/rob/log/logout_canceled/logout_cancel.log
Sound=/home/rob/Dropbox/shared_rcss_complex/15336__Marec__flushing_toilet.ogg
TTS=



However when I cancel a logout nothing happens. Here's the contents of the entire file:
Code: Select all
[Event/Textcompletion: no match]
Execute=
Logfile=
TTS=

[Event/Textcompletion: partial match]
Execute=
Logfile=

[Event/Textcompletion: rotation]

The exitkde event works fine. It plays a sound and logs the event properly. Is it possible the Execute= is not working? In Plasma 4 the gui accepted a command including arguments. In Plasma 5 the gui requires a path and does not accept arguments, a step backward in my view. It caused me to have to write a simple .sh script to invoke rexx.

Sorry, English is my first language.

Today I was asked to this exact thing to notify the company head when a particular user logs in/out cleanmaster. I suck at scripting; what changes would need to be made for this to also report logoff?

System Settings > Notifications > Event Source pull down > Plasma Workspace > logout

Check the box on Log to a file line and provide a location for the log file. No script needed.
