OK... so I am a newb programmer, I mean I just started yesterday (although I did some Basic before switching) and this is what I need to do. 1) Log on to a network computer using SSH 2) Take a screenshot of that computer every 10 seconds and copy it to my computer and then after I have taken enough screenshots (which will vary depending on user activity) 3) Delete the file myusername@myIP in the network computer's Home folder 4) Delete the screenshot file 5) Empty the trash I would like all these things to be done without the user knowing their happening - ie no dialog boxes, no alert sounds etc I know that most programmers don't like to help someone who hasn't done their homework. So... I am able to log on to the network computer via Terminal using ssh targetuser@targetIP and I am also able to take the screenshot and copy it to my computer (but not every 10 seconds) using screencapture -x ~/screen.jpg followed by scp ~/screen.jpg myusername@myIP: However, I have to do these manually every 10 seconds which is really not very practical or possible. I have no idea how to delete the files remotely or empty the trash. Please any help with automating the tasks or remotely emptying the trash would be appreciated.
