full screen java app from command line


Hello,

I am trying to make a java application run on a barebone computer connected to a tv screen trough hdmi. I want to make this run as light as possible so gnome probably is overkill. currently I'm running fluxbox but I would like to encapsulate video and some other gui stuff in the program and run it command line(trough startup script.)
Another way to do this would be running it when fluxbox starts in full screen. But I really don't know how to do this or where to edit the startup script so I can run it. I'm using ubuntu 10.04 server edition and only installed jre, fluxbox, and of course ssh-server.

Any help or directions would be really appreciated!

-Steven

Well, if you use fluxbox and want to run scripts/apps as fluxbox starts check out ~/.fluxbox/startup
That's the fluxbox startup-script. You could put it there. Also, it is nicely commented.
