Thanks Liam - will use one of these suggestions, probably the first - nice and easy.On Wed, 03 Jan 2007 09:14:45 +0000 andy <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote:Greetings one & all With Slackware, using XFce4, I used to know how to do this, but with Etch, using Gnome, I am coming up short: how do I get the xscreensaver (and other services) to initiate when I logon? Each time I logon, and go to use the xscreensaver I am given a message that says the server isn't running and asks whether I want to start it. Well, yes. But, I would like to figure out how to start it automatically. I've looked through different dot files but can't see anything obvious. Any suggestions? Thanks AThere are a few ways to do this with GNOME: 1. Start the screensaver, then start gnome-session-properties and save your current session. 2. Start the screensaver, then save your session when logging out. 3. Put a .desktop file in /etc/xdg/autostart (for all users) or ~/.config/autostart (per user). Or use a link to an existing .desktop file instead.
