lxqt autostarting programs

Post#1 by francois » 18 Jan 2015, 19:15

In root mode, is there some way to have some applications start at bootup with the /root/.config/lxqt/autostart.conf or with the /root/.config/openbox/autostart?

I have been trying without result:
- for /root/.config/lxqt/autostart.conf

Code: Select all

@leafpad
- for /root/.config/openbox/autostart

Code: Select all

...
#xfce-mcs-manager &
leafpad &
Thanks.

also, check out > Lxqt settings / Session settings/ Autostart
this works by placing .desktop files in ~/.config/autostart/

@ncmprhnsbl:

This exactly what I was looking for. From then on, you are my lxqt guru. I forgot about my elementary os lessons which seems to work quite alike lxde. :x

Thanks a lot. :D

@fanthom:
To be able to use the:
lxqt menu > preferences >lxqt system setting > session settings > autostart > edit > command (search option)

One should drop into the /usr/share/applications/ and not /usr/bin folder.

So appropriate .desktop file should point to /usr/share/applications folder.

Thanks.

@ncmprhnsbl:
Lxqt settings / Session settings/ Autostart

This is the easy way to do under any lxqt linux system (works in manjaro). :twisted:

Thanks.
