auto application(timed by day) running

OK, I am certain that there is a console command that will allow me to cause an application to start itself by day/date/time. I want my system to start up Totem every friday when I may not be around to tell it to. Ideally I would like it to act as if I have double clicked on this icon called listen.pls which opens it with totem. Any ideas?

I think you are looking for "cron". it is like Task scheduler on windows.
