Re: on startup scripts



Hi Brian

That's System->Preferences->Sessions-Startup programs. But it wont remeber
anything added on either of my systems (ubuntu 7.04) and it wont let me set
the order or priority either. Would be nice if it did but tis either broken
in this respect on my sys or maybe need to be root? But in ubuntu that
doesn't seem to make sense as I understand it. Another thought here. I'm
guessing this modifies a script somewhere. Anyone know which one? Maybe I can
modify it directly?

Well, I don't know the official gnome solution to this (I use KDE not
gnome), but you could make a script that sleeps for the startup time and
then executes the command you want to use. You would then start the
script automatically during the startup of gnome (like you wrote above).
The script would look like this:

#!/bin/sh
/bin/sleep 20
/path/to/your/command


You will probably have to adjust the sleep value of 20 (that is the delay
in seconds) to the startup time of gnome on your machine.

Isn't there System->Sessions->Startup programs?
