Open OO Impress document on boot and running it as a full screen slideshow


Hi All.

I'm setting up a OO Impress slide show/presentation. I would like it to open and start as a full screen slide show automatically on boot on Kubuntu Hardy.

I followed these instructions for getting it to run automatically. That works great if I'm around to click on the icon, but I would like the slide show to start on boot.

I tried adding variations of

Code:
ooimpress -show /home/my_username/Desktop/test.odp
to ~$.profile which did not work.

The closest I came to getting it to work was adding

Code:
ooimpress -show /home/my_username/Desktop/test.pps
to ~$.profile, but then I ended up with a slideshow running and another instance of the same document sitting there open on top of the slideshow. Grrrrr....

Any ideas on the best way to do this? I've tried putting a start up script together, but I'm still pretty new to using those.

Any information would be helpful.

Thanks in advance!

Thumbs up Solved!

I ended up using these instructions for a solution.

My script looks like this:

Code:
#!/bin/bash

/usr/bin/ooimpress -show /home/my_username/my_ppt.ppt
