Typically applications that have been told to start on login by the user such as Firestarter or Conky may need to be delayed slightly in order to ensure they load properly, and without interference from other processes. A simple script comes to the rescue.
Howto after the jump:
To create the script:
gedit delay.shCopy and paste the following into the file:
if [ $# == 2 ] ; then
nohup $2 &
echo "Usage: $0 delay command"
Save and quit.
Make the script executable:
chmod 700 delay.shWhen used in startup applications the command should be
/home/username/delay.sh ?? commandWhere ?? is the number of seconds you would like the command delayed.
/home/username/delay.sh 15 "conky"Would delay the startup of conky by 15 seconds.
Hope you find it useful!
