    Startup Application commands

    I know that I may start up Last.fm by inputting the command:
    Code:
    lastfm
    How am I able to start Last.fm without the window opening up? I just want it running in the background.

    No, when I put it into terminal, it spits this back and opens the window:

    Code:

    See if lastfm has some command line options. It is a GUI program.

    Re: Startup Application commands

    How about:
    Code:
    lastfm -tray
    Starts lastfm without opening a window and adds a notification icon to the top GNOME panel, not sure if that's all you want it to do..

    That is exactly what I wanted it to do! Thank you so much. I'm a little new to Ubuntu, sometimes I can't find my way around. How did you find that? I mean other commands to go with it?

    Re: Startup Application commands

    A good practice with the command line is using the man command. I got that command from:
    Code:
    man lastfm
    (use q to exit this)
    Almost all commands have a man (manual) entry, with documentation of options and proper use of a command.

    Glad to see other newcomers using the command line too.
