how to introduce a start (more/less complexe) start command?

Postby oui » Sun Jul 10, 2016 8:00 am

I don't know as Lxde user how to introduce easily a start command after login. What kind of command?

for example my actual start up sequence in JWM in ~/.jwmrc:

Code: Select all

        <!-- xli -onroot -fillscreen /home/f/.images/default.jpeg & -->
        conky -c ~/.conkyrc-live &
        setxkbmap us intl &
        skype &
        rm -rf ~/.mozilla
        cp -a ~/.mysettings/.mozilla ~/

Is that also possible in lxde (note1: the xli command is commented or not depending of the actual jwm binary. jwm doesn't need some background viewer at all if compiled with the needing viewing lib's. note2: I don't use conky! It was in the sample of file at lubuntu64 minimal. as it doesn't disturb, I did let it in the file. actually, I don't use Lxde as I am not able to organize above starting up. no problem in Debian derivates as Debian uses a debian-menu file in /etc/jwm... as some app's coming out KDE don't appear in the debian-menu file, I add xfce4-appfinder, it is little and find all app's and is not depending of the file manager, as I prefer use rox-filer because of the ability to easily redefine standard app's, app's compiled by me etc.)

kind regards

Is /home/user/.config/lxsession/LXDE/autostart what you are looking for? I use Lubuntu with LXDE.

Mine, for example, is:
@xscreensaver -no-splash
@lxpanel --profile LXDE
@pcmanfm --desktop --profile LXDE

I added '@/home/user/startup_scripts/'; being a script of the commands that I need started/launched after login.
