Bash script

xflux -l 55 -g 37

How autoboot it precisely in debian 8? I.e via "Startap Application" command

gnome-terminal -e /path_to_script/script.sh

Doesn't work

  • I think it would help to know what desktop environment you're using - it looks like the default for Debian 8 is Gnome 3.14 and if you're using that then you probably want to make the script executable (chmod +x ~/scripts/start_xflux) and then run that from the Gnome autostart dialogue – Jonathan Austin Jun 7 '16 at 13:33
  • I use cinnamon. – delkov Jun 8 '16 at 5:03

I think this covers your use case:

Start Script when Gnome Starts Up

and involves creating a .desktop file and dropping it in ~/.config/autostart:


[Desktop Entry]
GenericName=A descriptive name
Comment=Some description about your script
