Automatically load xmms player on boot


Hi,
I use fedora core 4 and I need to automatically load xmms player on boot.
I tryed to insert a command line in:
/etc/rc5.d/S99local
but it doesn't work because xmms player should be loaded after user log in.
Thanks everyone for help.

That's right, It should not have worked because xmms needs X services to load.

I would create a small script

#!/bin/bash
/usr/bin/xmms -p

and place the script in ~/.kde/Autostart

This will start xmms and play the current list.

ok,
at the moment I use GNOME interface, but if KDE will solve my problem I will change graphic interface.
Thanks

I don't use gnome, however a quick search gave me this similar path for autostart as with KDE...

/usr/share/gnome/autostart

I don't think you have to change your DT... just find the autostart directory for gnome...
