Thread: how to start gnome-terminal at login

    Default how to start gnome-terminal at login

    Hello everyone,
    I'm wondering what is the best method to start gnome terminal at login. I'm tired of manually start the terminal at every reboot.. I must say I'm not an experienced user with such init tasks.
    I'm using Leap 15.2 with gnome.
    thanks

    I am not using Gnome.

    In KDE, when you leave an application open at logout, it will be restarted at login (well, you can configure this out). And you can also configure to start applications at login. Isn't that a feature of Gnome?

    (BTW, this has nothing to do with boot, only with login).

    Thanks.
    Using pre-defined gnome apps like Tweaks works, thank you.
    However I'm wondering how to start a graphical application at login can be done using methods like systemd services or init.d scripts.
    thanks

    These are (or were in the case of init) for system services/programs/deamons. Not for users in their GUI (or CLI) login.

    Please understand the very important difference between processes that run for "the system" (often with root as owner) and those that run for the (many possible) users of a system.

    You're right. Thank you

    Each user has systemd instance that is started with first login session. It can be used to start user specific programs. Actually, today gnome session runs mostly as systemd user services.

    I know, but I had the strong idea that the OP was mentioning systemd system services as he combined the term with the term with init.d.

    I assumed that for systemd user services there is a end-user GUI interface provided in the desktop when the desktop finds this useful (or the desktop provides an alternative mechanism to start things on login). Thus systemd user services is then something behind the scene for an end-user. But as non-Gnome user I may be wrong in this case.

    I am not aware of any GUI to manage user systemd services.

    Then the OP can only use what is provided by Gnome or start learning about systemd user services.
