Thread: How do I use my own custom startup file that will run when X Window starts?

  1. #1

    How do I use my own custom startup file that will run when X Window starts?

    Summary

    I have Knoppix installed on my hard disc (distro 7.0.2, kernel release 3.3.7).

    How do I use my own custom startup file that will run when X Window starts?

    I've put an executable shell script in the directory /etc/X11/Xsession.d/ but
    the command inside it doesn't run.

    Please could you tell me what's wrong, and what I need to do? Thanks.

    Full Desccription

    When X Window starts, I'd like to use an X11 startup file to run the Kate
    editor so that a Kate window appears, containing the file I want to view. I've
    put a startup file in the directory /etc/X11/Xsession.d/ called "a90-custom"
    (named so that it runs last). It's a bash script (made executable) containing

    Code:
    #! /bin/bash
    kate --new /home/knoppix/text-file.txt &
    But after bootup, and after X Window starts, the Desktop appears but with
    no Kate window showing.

    Try using you desktop's autostart feature to run the program after Knoppix logs in
