Top Forums UNIX for Beginners Questions & Answers Bash find version of an installed application but if none is found set variable to App Not Installed Post 303040322 by RudiC on Saturday 26th of October 2019 01:07:11 PM
Your commands won't work; you need at least e.g. "command substitution".
Try
Code:
APP=$(application --version 2>/dev/null || echo "not installed")

Be aware that not all applications / tools offer a --version option - their result may be misleading.

CODE is the name of a remote control key of REMOTE, as it appears in the lircd configuration file. NUM is the transmitter number of the hardware device. For the LIST DIRECTIVE, REMOTE and/or CODE can be empty: LIST "" "" - list all configured remote names LIST REMOTE "" - list all codes of REMOTE LIST REMOTE CODE - list only CODE of REMOTE The SIMULATE command only works if it has been explicitly enabled in lircd. -h --help display usage summary -v --version display version -d --device use given lircd socket [/var/run/lirc/lircd] -a --address=host[:port] connect to lircd at this address -# --count=n send command n times EXAMPLES
