automatically start application
 
Hi Everyone,

is there a way, how I can configure fedora 6 to automatically startup application upon boot-up. Let say, I wanna load firefox after user log on onto desktop.

Thanks....

It depends on you desktop for example in kde you can create a file firefox.desktop, in ~/.kde/Autostart/firefox.desktop

Code:

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Firefox
Exec=path_your_firefox_executable
Icon=
Type=Application

Actually, you don't need to create that file manually, of course. You could also open that directory in Konqueror, and drag'n'drop the shortcut from the K Menu into it.
Also, not only shortcuts are executed but any executable file you put there, shell scripts for example.

Gnome has a similar functionality, it used to be in the Gnome control center. Look out for a menu entry that is called "Session Management" or something like that.
Or just call gnome-session-properties from a terminal
