AutoRun Program in XWindows
 
Is there a way to autorun a program once Xwindows starts?

i don't think so, not in the global sense. i mean you can have programs autostart when logging into your account. like for KDE, just put a link inside ~/.kde/Autostart and in gnome there's Gnome's Foot button (like start button) > Programs > Settings > Sessions > Session Properties & Start up Programs.

Yes, there is. That's your XINITRC file.

It's usually located in ~/.xinitrc or /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.

This file contains your Window Manager executable name, and it can also include any other X program. Be sure to include an & after the previous program, such as:
Code:

startkde &
kmail

Restart X Windows Program
 
If i have a program AutoStart once XWindows loads is there a way to have the program run again if it is killed?
