need a simple startup terminal command


I am having a problem getting synergy client to load at startup so I am wondering if there is a script that will load in terminal "synergyc 192.168.1.35" that way I don't have to keep switching out my mouse all of the time

Maybe you can add it to .xsession in your home folder or rc.local

Depends of you're distro but usually rc.local is in /etc. Fire up a editor (nano is a simple and good one) as root and add the line in rc.local
