comment Monitor via SSH and execute local script upon change detection
This sounds very complicated. Which problem are you trying to solve? For a Linux dev environment with a shared folder, many people like to use Vagrant, for example.

comment Skype window doesn't show on Debian 7.0 with Openbox
Sometimes these issues can be solved by running the program again, it might become visible (i.e. un-minimized) then... no idea if this works with Skype.

@bshacklett W.r.t logs, I'd have a closer look at logstash. The store can be fed logs directly from Log4j, but the logstash agent can also monitor log files

@bshacklett you can examine any init script's (any shell script's actually) function by running it explicitly with bash -vx, ie. bash -vx /etc/init.d/script start.

Don't bother getting the usage of this right and go with daemon, there's a RPM package, too. Btw, there're many log monitoring tools out there (start here).

comment How can I run a shell script as a daemon under Redhat?
It's not wrong. /etc/init.d/functions defines a daemon function that expects its argument to daemonize itself, it only takes care of things like changing the user, setting ulimits, checking (not creating!) a pidfile... The best usage of this daemon function is to replace it with libslack's daemon ;)
