Running programs when x starts


Hi, im having a bit of a problem figuring out how i can get rox pinboard to start when i start x. I have managed this before with fluxbox but this time im using icewm and xdm. Im running debian unstable. Thanks very much, kzar

I use login.app instead of xdm to get a GUI login but I expect they both work the same way, reading .xsession in user's home directory to find out which X session to start. You can use .xsession also to launch other applications when X starts and you can set your locale in the same file.

Check this first http://www.dsl.org/cookbook/cookbook_6.html#SEC93 and then take a look at the documents in /usr/share/doc/xfree86-common/ to learn more.
