View Full Version : [other] Autostart programs in iceWM

January 19th, 2009, 11:49 PM
Hello I've recently started using iceWM as my main window manager. I can't seem to get a few things I need to auto start.

I'm using pcmanfm for my filemanager, and it's handling drawing my desktop, I also need nm-applet to startup.

According to icewm docs I just place a script at ~/.icewm/startup, I tried this and it's not working for me, neither program get's autostarted and I end up with an open xterm that refuses to close, I can't log out without restarting x.

Here is the content's of the script at ~/.icewm/startup, yes I did remember to make it executable.


Any help would be appreciated!

I think I actually solved this, I just had to add a sleep in between commands.

So in short the script should look like this

sleep 1
