Chromebook and silent mode

Post by OBXLL » Tue Jan 12, 2021 2:33 am

Hi,

I've got an iMacros script that is working fine - it downloads a file from a weather website. I'm running it in a loop.

I'm running the free browser add-on in Chrome on a Chromebook.

Is it possible to run my setup in silent mode? The examples I see have silent mode as a switch when launching Chrome on Windows.

I can get to a crosh window, but can launch chrome from there, and not sure if the switch would work on a non-windows setup.

I'd like to run my script in the background.

Thanks,

Glenn

Can you post a Link/Ref to the "examples you see [that] have silent mode as a switch"...?, I'm not sure what you mean exactly, or do you mean the '-silent' and/or '-tray' Switches from the iMacros 'CLI' Syntax...?

The crosh window is similar to the command or cmd box opened up in Windows. It is text interface to run things like ping, tracepath. I don't think it will launch applications like Windows.

By switch, yes I meant -silent.

OK, so I see that -silent is not available in the "free" mode.

So since I need to upgrade to Personal Edition, and Personal Edition only runs on Windows, I guess I've answered my own question.]
