Help Me;


I would like to make AbleFtp program startu everytime I start my Opensuse 10.3 laptop. It is downloaded as a .zip file and I have unzipped to /home/wesley/Desktop/LINUX_SOFTWARE/lin7/hitek7/ on my pc. I can it from there via ./AbleFtp, however I would like to have it start at startup as I need to Ftp a site every morning.

Please go to http://www.hiteksoftware.com/ablef/ftp-client.htm to get APP.

Thanks for your help.

Wes

The application can be started with a script,
(example name of script = 'hitek7.sh')
Quote:
#!/bin/bash
cd /home/wesley/Desktop/LINUX_SOFTWARE/lin7/hitek7/
exec ./AbleFtp
Make the script executeable (chmod +x)
and cp or move it to /usr/local/bin .

And make a link from /usr/local/bin/hitek7.sh to /home/wesley/.kde/Autostart
and the program will be opened at KDE start.

Regards

"Help Me" is not a proper title for a thread.
