E17 startup scripts.


I need to have nm-applet in my shelf.

I have appended the following in my .bashrc:

nm-applet &

However, the applet doesn't get placed in the shelf until the Bash Terminal is run and then it terminates when the Terminal is closed.

Where do I need to place the command so that it appears when e17 starts?

I don't think .bashrc would be the right place because everytime a shellscript gets executed, .bashrc gets parsed.

And only if it is a #!/bin/bash script.

#!/bin/sh would also parse .bashrc if /bin/sh would be a link to /bin/bash .

The right place would be .xinitrc i think .

If .xinitrc has got a #!/bin/bash it should launch nm-applet which i am guessing is about "network-manager" .

In .bashrc it would need something like

Code:
pidof nm-applet || nm-applet &
to prevent multiple instances running.
