The preload daemon script


On a default pi-apps installation, you will find this script at /home/pi/pi-apps/etc/preload-daemon.
This file is located in the etc folder because it's one of the smaller scripts.


To generate the app-list for all categories.


Preload all categories for yad, repeating every 30 seconds for a total of 20 times:

~/pi-apps/etc/preload-daemon yad

Preload all categories for xlunch only once:

~/pi-apps/etc/preload-daemon xlunch once
