First, hopefully this is not a repeat thread, but I search the forum and really didn’t find any thread that dealt with this, or at least I didn’t catch it.
What I am wondering is: Is there a .startup type of file that is executed (if it exists in the user’s home directory) that allows for things to be executed upon the user logging in? I recall this is available on some Unix boxes, and just wondering if it is implemented on OpenSUSE, or how I could implement something along those lines.
Basically, what I need to happen is run a (dare I say it, as it gives me a bad taste in my mouth) Win-blows executable at start-up… It is a LivePerson Expert Manager to be exact, and until there is a Linux version I have to install and use wine. So I am thinking that if I could kick it off at startup, all is fine in the world (at least for me.)
I am using KDE4, and yeppers, putting that shell script under where John suggested was the key… Though it did not like the dot-file (.startup) and I had to rename it to something else, but all in all, it is performing as expected.
