    Re: Run commands(script) at startup

    I am running Ubuntu 12.10 and not lubuntu, I managed to put lubuntu as prefix by a mistake. So perhaps .xsessionrc does not exist in Ubuntu? Because I can not find it there.

    Re: Run commands(script) at startup

    So this rc.local should work?




    #!/bin/sh -e
    #
    # rc.local
