How to change the startup programs in fluxbox?


hello,
Can you tell me where is the file which has control about the programs e.g. Jack which are loaded when entering fluxbox.

I would like add some programs to the startup list.

i have found a .xinitrc but the apps which evidently are loaded on startup are not signed in this file. Instead ther is alink to the Xsession file but I do not understand what this file do.

With the help of a friend I tried rcconfig and this works for some things (like disabling the GDM startup manager).

But I still do not know how to change the startup apps on my system

The apps file is located in your ~/.fluxbox directory, however if you aren't using a 0.9x version of fluxbox, you won't find it. The apps file was added to the development version of fluxbox.

any file linked to from .xinitrc would run whatever apps are in that file. in your case, apps in Xsession would run. unless that is just a settings file. i can't remember when i've seen seen that or what it was.
startup files on your system are seperate from startup apps for X. depending on your distribution, they may be in /etc/rc.d/. if kde is on your system, you can run ksysv.
