@russ Thanks a lot, this worked. I shouldn't've assumed it would always run in the home directory. This saved me a lot of headaches.

RE: Echo linux command not working when run from the internet, but works on device
Echo linux command not working when run from the internet, but works on device
Here's an example of one of the commands I want to run:
echo "python giveTour.py fullTour" > Desktop/Cram0002/reqs.txt
Basically just trying to echo a line into a file. It works when I activate the trigger directly on the laptop, but if I activate it using the triggerCMD website or Alexa, the command does nothing. Its not a connection issue either, because if I replace the above command with a different one, it runs correctly. It is only failing for commands that echo something into a file. I can't find any reason these would fail when the triggers work correctly when run on the machine.
Any help would be appreciated.
