Postby jaybiz3 on Tue Sep 11, 2012 11:42 pm

How can I add a Microsoft Windows (XP) based software to the Linux startup system?

Have you tried the Application Autostart tab in xfce4-session-settings ? Or are you looking for something to happen pre-login?

I have tried but when clicking 'Add' then 'Command' icon some folders do not appear. It maybe because they're hidden as I can see the folders in File Manager.

I just thought of something - I can type in the program name! Now to see if it works, Thanks.

That didn't work, it does needs "Wine' to run but I'm sure wine run on startup, even though its not in the startup list.

It guess it'd help to know what program are you trying to run? And have you tried using “wine <full_path_to_program>” ?

I added wine but it still didn't work but eventually I got it working. The problem was spaces in the folder name and it needs "\" added before the spaces. Thanks again.
