starting X apps


hello all. i have a small problem, and hopefully can find a quick solution. i'm running windowmaker, which doesn't start the xscreensaver daemon at load. i'd like to start the daemon (as well as add localhost to my xhost list). does anyone know if there's a file or startup script similar to how rc.local functions for the entire system, but specifically for x? i just need a way to start xscreensaver when X loads.

thanx! :-)

i don't actually know if there's a proper recourse for setting it, but you should be able to add it to /etc/X11/xinitrc or similar

Yep - use .xinitrc ... put your commands in as follows

exec command 1 &
exec command 2 &
exec command 3 &
exec wmaker

This will load startup apps prior to WindowMaker, and kill them when you exit. At least that's what I do... works great for me.
