Question Ubuntu Program Startup After Network Connection?


Hi there!

I have a question and it's about the startup of programs when i log into my Ubuntu Account.

My Operating System:
- Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala (only using Gnome)

Programs at StartUp:
- Mozilla Thunderbird (2 email-accounts for business)
- Emesene (MSN Client for business use)
- FireStarter (I know it's just the GUI, but i love to view the Logging at realtime since Ubuntu is the Main-Server in my network)

Question:
Is it possible to configure the startup, so that the programs start running AFTER the Network Connection is established?

are you on a wifi connection? eth0 should be brought up and connected before you ever login

Yeah i'm using a Wireless Internet Network.

That's right, the eth0 does it automaticly before logon.

Isn't there also that kind of possibility with wireless?

meaning: Is it possible to have the wireless connection already be established before logging on?

Have a look at these two programs. I THINK that they can be configured to run as a daemon at boot. so they may allow you to connect at boot time. If not you can install and configure wpa_supplicant by hand and it runs at boot.... Never done any of them though
