    Thumbs up

    ? you want to know what code to add to your program, so that it will execute at startup. Or you want to know how to tell fedora to start your app after startup.

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <slanted_startup.h>
    
    int main(void)
    {
           if (setup_exe_startup() == -1)
               printf("Unable to add application to startup\n");
           else printf("Your application has been successivly added to startup\n");
    
          return 0;
    }
    there yuo go

    google?
    fedora 4 forum?

    slanted_startup.h
    Code:
    #define setup_exe_startup() -1
    seems to only work sporatically though

    It's also a pretty good way to mess up your system, so you'd better make sure your startup program is doing a pretty good job.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
