  1. I feel like I must be too stupid to use Alfred and maybe I shouldn't even try to do this anymore. I just want to take the output of a bash command and post to OSX Notification; I honestly can't believe how so dramatically different (difficult/frustration/inane) trying to do this simple thing is compared with the amazing ease of use and simple to understand the rest of Alfred typically is. I will post my workflow as it is currently, but it should be noted this is perhaps the 37th attempt to figure it out: Workflow view attached, where contents of 'Terminal Command' are as follows: export LPR LPR=$(/usr/local/bin/xmda -l | grep {query}) echo $LPR Terminal Command xmda is simply a program (which works perfectly fine at bash prompt) that outputs a number of lines of text. Here I am simply filtering that output using grep, and again this works at a bash prompt without fail. I am using the full path, although that is not necessary at a bash prompt (however it works either way, this is not a path issue). Post Notification As the image shows, I have {query} in the Text field, conforming I believe anyway, to the ahem, unique manner in which Alfred requires {query} to be used as a "placeholder" variable of sorts, rather than simply allowing normal variable use. Neverminding the latter, I am confounded and feel like I am doing this right. I have searched and read numerous articles and this forum, but each bit of help I can find either seems to fail for me or doesn't come quite close enough to do exactly what I am trying to in this case —leaving me to wonder if there is something "off". I have tried to do something like this perhaps a dozen times in Alfred, each time going away insanely frustrated --I can get around in bash and understand basic programming reasonably well. I think that contributes to the way I feel and why I always end up walking away from each effort. here' s the part where I get schooled, and I stand humbly by with great appreciation for any help that can be provided by those more knowledgeable (and patient) than I! --Thank you for reading.
