How to start application?


May be you can help me?
How can I start application automatically after login to Gnome? I use bypass login to the gui, but I couldn't start the application?

I'll be really gratful for any help!
Best regards.

Re: How to start application?

Depending on what application you want to use, and depending on which terminal you're using, try adding the command into .bash_profile if you're using bash, or .login if you're using csh, tcsh.

example to launch "xcalc" upon start of gnome:
cd /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d

echo `#!/bin/bash` >;echo `xcalc&` >>;chmod a+x


The xcalc should start automatically.
