EVERY time I log in to E17


Dear Forum,

I would like the two following things to happen EVERY TIME I log in to E17 on Slackware 11:

1) Start gkrellm
2) Esetroot -s <my background>

I have tried the following in /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.e17:

Code:
#!/bin/sh
{default junk from file snipped}
# Start the window manager:
gkrellm &
exec /usr/bin/enlightenment
#set E17 background for transparency
#set up currently for "dark" theme -- may need to change later
Esetroot -s /home/joel/desktop.png
I previously had these in a different order, with Esetroot before exec e17 and gkrellm starting after.

Neither has worked.

I am logging in from KDM.

Is there a way to make this happen? (I'm open to all solutions, graphical, editing files, etc.)

Thanks,
Joel

Create an eap for each one of the applications you'd like to run

The process is a bit unusual in E17.
Code:
cd ~/.e/e/applications/all
edit_eap gkrellm.eap
This will bring up a gui, it's pretty self-explanatory. When you're finished hit save.

Lastly, you'll want to add this new eap to the list under your startup folder

Code:
echo "gkrellm.eap" >> ~/.e/e/applications/startup/.order
Good luck.

Okay, here's what happened:

1) INstead of "edit_eap" my system has "enlightenment_remote -start-eap-edit gkrellm.eap"
2) I created "eaps" for each Gkrellm and Esetroot and copied the names to ~/.e/e/applications/.order
3) I logged out; when I logged back in all I got was a white screen with my custom enlightenment mouse pointer.
4) I logged in on tty1 and edited the files. First I removed Esetroot, figuring that it was the Esetroot that was screwing things up. I logged in to E17 again and got the same white screen with custom mouse pointer ("dark" theme ). So, I went back to tty1 and removed everything from applications/.order. Now I'm back in E17 and still have my non-transparent Eterm

Is there a workspace-saving feature like in Afterstep?

Is there an option for Eterm himself to set the background image so that I can enable transparency? (it looks really cool with the "dark" theme!)

Thanks,
Joel

As far as transparency for Eterm goes, is there an "e17-native" solution, like setting window properties for the application, rather than making it an option for Eterm?

Thanks,
Joel

Update: I wanted the X screensaver daemon to start so I made XScreensaver.desktop (as opposed to .eap) and copied that to ~/.e/e/applications/startup. That worked; unfortunately I also tried this with gkrellm and login stalled at the splashscreen. I removed gkrellm.desktop and I logged in just fine.
