Simple script to be executed on startup.


I want to make it so that as soon as I login this line is executed just as if I had typed this at a console:

kstart --window gkrellm --alldesktops --ontop --skiptaskbar /usr/bin/gkrellm

How do I do this?

Add it to .xinitrc and throw a & on the end of it.

Where do I add kstart --window gkrellm --alldesktops --ontop --skiptaskbar /usr/bin/gkrellm to the file? Tried several places and none seem to work. Here's my /etc/X11/xinitrc:

Code:
!/bin/sh
# (c) 1999-2002 Red Hat, Inc.

userresources=$HOME/.Xresources
usermodmap=$HOME/.Xmodmap
userxkbmap=$HOME/.Xkbmap

sysresources=/etc/X11/Xresources
sysmodmap=/etc/X11/Xmodmap
sysxkbmap=/etc/X11/Xkbmap

# merge in defaults
if [ -f "$sysresources" ]; then
    xrdb -merge "$sysresources"
fi

if [ -f "$userresources" ]; then
    xrdb -merge "$userresources"
fi

# merge in keymaps
if [ -f "$sysxkbmap" ]; then
    setxkbmap `cat "$sysxkbmap"`
    XKB_IN_USE=yes
fi

if [ -f "$userxkbmap" ]; then
    setxkbmap `cat "$userxkbmap"`
    XKB_IN_USE=yes
fi

if [ -z "$XKB_IN_USE" -a ! -L /etc/X11/X ]; then
    if grep '^exec.*/Xsun' /etc/X11/X > /dev/null 2>&1 && [ -f /etc/X11/XF86Config ]; then
        xkbsymbols=`sed -n -e 's/^[     ]*XkbSymbols[   ]*"\(.*\)".*$/\1/p' /etc/X11/XF86Config`
        if [ -n "$xkbsymbols" ]; then
            setxkbmap -symbols "$xkbsymbols"
            XKB_IN_USE=yes
        fi
    fi
fi

# xkb and xmodmap don't play nice together
if [ -z "$XKB_IN_USE" ]; then
    if [ -f "$sysmodmap" ]; then
        xmodmap "$sysmodmap"
    fi

    if [ -f "$usermodmap" ]; then
        xmodmap "$usermodmap"
    fi
fi

unset XKB_IN_USE

# run all system xinitrc shell scripts.
for i in /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/* ; do
    if [ -x "$i" ]; then
        . "$i"
    fi
done

# The user may have their own clients they want to run.  If they don't,
# fall back to system defaults.
# set up ssh agent environment if available.

if [ -f $HOME/.Xclients ]; then
    [ -x /usr/bin/ssh-agent -a -z "$SSH_AGENT_PID" ] && \
        exec ssh-agent $HOME/.Xclients || \
        exec $HOME/.Xclients
elif [ -f /etc/X11/xinit/Xclients ]; then
    [ -x /usr/bin/ssh-agent -a -z "$SSH_AGENT_PID" ] && \
        exec ssh-agent /etc/X11/xinit/Xclients || \
        exec /etc/X11/xinit/Xclients
else
       # failsafe settings.  Although we should never get here
       # (we provide fallbacks in Xclients as well) it can't hurt.
       xclock -geometry 100x100-5+5 &
       xterm -geometry 80x50-50+150 &
       if [ -x /usr/bin/netscape -a -f /usr/share/doc/HTML/index.html ]; then
               netscape /usr/share/doc/HTML/index.html &
       fi
       if [ -x /usr/X11R6/bin/fvwm2 ]; then
               exec fvwm2
       else
               exec twm
       fi
fi
