Is the crunchbang openbox autostart script simply a bash script, thus concluding I can put anything bashy in there?? And when is the script executed (e.g. login after rc.local)?

System: Crunchbang Waldorf on Debian Wheezy net install


Yes autostart is a shell (not necessarily bash) script that launches after you log into the GUI. You can launch programs or custom scripts or write them right in the autostart file. I would suggest writing the scripts separately and then launching them with autostart.

  • thanks, and yeah not necessarily bash of course, but bash is the most common shell. – mahatmanich Feb 12 '14 at 7:54
