    Default How to create startup script?

    Hi guys. I need to create a script which should run a program (amsn messenger) each time a specific user logs on to kde, but after hours of googling I am still not sure where to put it. Please a little advice. I'm using suse 10.2. Thanks for help.

    Hi,

    For KDE, the autostart scripts go into ~/.autostart (/home/'user'/.autostart)

    Just type ~/.autostart into a konqueror window and it should come up. (Alternatively, you can click "Go --> Autostart" in Konqueror anyway).

    Hope this helps.

    hy!

    I want to start wbar automatically after gnome loads. How can i delay it for that time when the background is loaded (because if its load before the backround wbar will be simply green ad have to right click on it) now i have a wbar.desktop file in $user/.config/autostart:
    Code:
    [Desktop Entry]
    Type=Application
    Encoding=UTF-8
    Version=1.0
    Name=No Name
    Name[en_US]=wbar
    Exec=/usr/bin/wbar --above-desk -bpress
