Re: Gnome startup?



You can write some kind of wrapper script
#!/bin/sh
PATH=/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin
sudo firestarter

or maybe add `&`

#!/bin/sh
PATH=/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin
sudo firestarter &

then put this script somewhere in /usr/bin
and in desktop file Exec=your_script_wrapper_name

But i think, that there is some docs about desktop files syntax
I don't know exactly where, but look here http://freedesktop.org/

More news-
I replaced the line "Exec=firestarter" with "Exec=sudo firestarter."
Now when I start up, firestarter is open, but somehow the Gnome splash
screen stays on until I click it.  I don't know if it is the .desktop
file that is opening firestarter, or Gnome's attempt to preserve the
previous session.  Now, the firestarter icon doesn't come up on the
splash screen; I'm guessing because it's actually executing sudo and
not firestarter?  Interesting.
