how do I run gnome apps on startup?


does anybody know how I can run an application automatically after gnome loads?
what file should I edit?
i was thinking it was /etc/X11/xinitrc/xinitrc.gnome

I added "exec /usr/bin/amsn" without ""

but it didnt work after i restarted xwindows...

If you want something to load up automatically every time Gnome starts just save your current settings before you log out, or you can go to Applications--> Desktop Preferences--> Advanced--> Sessions. In Sessions go to the startup tab and add the program you want Gnome to start by default.
