Autostart firefox

Post#1 by firehazard » 11 May 2014, 23:50

I have portius installed to a hard drive in an old pc

I cannot figure out hot to make firefox start automatically when the system starts.

I have tried going to portius settings centre and clicked on "run a command or startup script" I just wrote firefox in the box and hit ok.

I have also tried cheatcodes but nothing seems to work. I'm just at a loss

Put whatever you want started into /home/guest/.config/autostart, just follow the examples of what is there now.
The Porteus Settings Center script creator is designed for system startup scripts which run before X is started, so any script calling a gui program such as Firefox will not run.

Code: Select all

Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
