Hello list,

to display information after LCDd exited, I created a patch that allows
reading the content of a custom file. The lines in this file are then
displayed e.g. during standby of the computer (if the display is
provided with power in standby).

New entry in LCDd.conf:
# Custom file for setting the goodbye message with runtime information
that is not available at server startup
GoodByeFile=/etc/LCDd.goodbye

The content of the file may be something like (a timer for a recording
that shall be done - depending on the number of lines your display
provides):
"07.01. 20:13 ProSieb
Die gro?e Quatsch Winter Show"

Maybe the patch is useful for any other person except me, maybe it might
be include into the lcdproc sources ...
However, I did not put much effort into debugging it. It works as is for
me ;-).

Greets,
Christian
