[SOLVED} How to add Rainlendar2 to open on start-up

Post by JTemple »

In LM 19.3 Rainlendar opened at start-up, in LM 20 I need to turn it on. I looked at startup Applications and it is not in the list to be turned on and I can't see any way to add to that list.

In Startup Applications, at the bottom middle, there's a + (plus) to add a new entry. In your case, you should be able to use the "Choose application" option. But, if it's not there, you might be able to use the "Custom command" option. If you use the "Custom command" option, you'll need to use a command that'll start up Rainlender2. I haven't used Rainlender in years, so I can't tell you exactly what that is.

Test it. See the little gears at the bottom? Click that to test it. Make sure it starts it okay. If not, click on the pencil to edit it until you find something that works.

Hope this helps. I'm refering mostly to Cinnamon, but I think Mate and XFCE have something very similar.

Create the new startup application and in the command field type simply:

rainlendar2

That will start it. If you have any conflicts add a couple seconds delay.

In your menu find the app Startup Applications. There click the add or plus button to get a window like I
posted above and fill in the two fields as shown, then click Add. You can check the action by logging out and back in.

edit--Now I see solved in the topic. Thumbs up.
