View Full Version : My startup script doesn't work

April 7th, 2007, 10:01 PM
Can somebody please take a look at this script for me and tell me why gdesklets and skype don't start?
(Running Fiesty)

echo password | /usr/lib/libpam-keyring/pam-keyring-tool -u -s

# Delay Firestarter, since an error occurs before the wireless network is found
sleep 30s; sudo firestarter --start-hidden
sleep 10s; gdesklets &

#Delay Skype
sleep 50s; skype

This script allows me to automatically login without having to type in the keyring password.

Firestarter starts but gdesklets and skype don't start, even if I wait a long time.

Are you missing a & after "firestarter --start-hidden" ?

I don't think so.

I did a logoff and logged back in and gdesklets gave me a crash error (which i reported) and skype started.

So the script does work, but not on the initial startup.
