wbar & XFCE start-up sequence

Postby mduno on Mon Jan 18, 2010 1:01 pm

Hi -

I've been using wbar on an older DELL laptop with Linux Mint 7 - XFCE and have been noticing that when the system launches wbar shows up with a black rectangle behind it. If I right mouse click on the black rectangle it disappears and the desktop appears behind wbar.

Is there some way of changing the start-up sequence for XFCE so that wbar starts last?

Regards,

Dave

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I'm not sure this will work but its worth a try.

In your home folder, there should be a folder called /.scripts. If its not there I think XFCE will check there on startup if you create the folder (it does in normal Mint). I created a very simple bash script there to prevent my conky from starting up too soon like this:
Code: Select all
#!/bin/bash

sleep 18 &&
conky -d -c /home/fwc/.conkyrc
exit


This is saved in Conky.sh so I think you can do the same for wbar but I could be completely wrong. Just replace the code on the fourth line with the command you use to start wbar in the terminal (probably wbar).

Thanks for your feedback. I'll take a look at it this evening.

I also noticed that an XFCE session starts with startxfce4:

I am thinking of tinkering with this as well.
