I think you just go into Settings, Autostarted Applications, but I could be wrong....
Thanks for the reply to my message.
I believe the above suggestion is the prescribed method for autostarting apps when using XFCE4 as the window manager. However I am trying to accomplish the same thing using Icewm.
I have examined the starticewm file and noted the presence of a suggestion to launch various programs such as rox and vdesk should they be present on the system. The statements are as follows:
if which launch-roxpinboard &> /dev/null; then
elif which launch-vdesk &> /dev/null; then
elif which launch-dfm &> /dev/null; then
elif which launch-idesk &> /dev/null; then
The statements to execute these apps have no effect when launching Icewm from the command line or from GUI login. I am only able to launch these apps from the command line and only if I edit the /etc/x11/xinit/xinitrc.icewm or (icewm-desk).
However, GUI login does not acknowledge these changes and launches Icewm without the benefit of starting these additional apps.
I can certainly work from the command line but I want to introduce family members to Vector Linux and want to make the experience similar to windows while demonstrating how easy it really is (how much more flexible and stable than windows as well) to use once they get used to the notion. My wife bought an Acer 5050 laptop with Windows Vista Home Basic I can see major issues there. I want to wean the family off windows because Microsoft has clearly demonstrated an increasing disregard for the end user with the release of each new version of windows. I see only disaster for end users from issues with system stability to EULA problems for honest users and major security issues.
Hopefully someone can help me with this. Thanks!
