Question Startup Applications


Hi, I'm using Mandrake 8.2 with Blackbox and I was wondering how to make applications start automatically when I get into blackbox... I've tried putting it into .bashrc but then it starts each time I open a new term. Anybody have an idea???

It depends how you get in to X. If you use the "startx" command then you should be able to create yourself a .xinitrc file.

You can find an example of a complex one (with lots of comments) here: http://david.us-lot.org/linux-config.php
