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