Ok so I know about autorun when in kde but I'd like a script to auto run while on the command line after logging in (I use runlevel 3) but, I can't seem to find anything on how this works and most likely I'm just missing it and not noticing so if anyones got any ideas do share as this would help make life a lot easier for me!
To be brutely honest I've never used the ~/.profile before sure I remember reading quite a while ago on how to make one and that its useful so I do it but never gave it much thought so I'll give that a go as its rather small and not to big.
The >> /.profile means add the prior command to the end of the /.profile file. To start over use command > /.profile. As to if prior command finishes first the use of sleep 3[4,5] >> /.profile ( pick one number only) should ensure completion of prior command prior to execution of hte next.
