ROX for Desktop Icons
 
hi. I am trying to use rox so that i can have desktop icons with xfce4 on debian. It works wonderfully. However, everytime i restard the computer i have to drop to the commandline and type rox -p=PIN. Is there a way for this to automaticaly take place when xfce starts?

According to the manual, all symbolic links or programs in ~/Desktop/Autostart are run automatically at startup.
So fire up a text editor and create a file called pinboard.sh:

#!/bin/bash
rox -p=PIN

and save it. Make it executable (chmod +x pinboard.sh) and put it in the ~/Desktop/Autostart/ folder (~ is your home directory). Restart X and it should work.
