How to make Firefox start up automatically in a full screen window.
I've been Googling all day and cannot find the answer. I find all the "GUI" ways to do it through Gnome and KDE but I'm not using either...
I have an EEE PC set to boot up automatically to openbox and want Firefox to start after that in a full screen openbox window.
I've tried adding the firefox command to ~/.initrc but it won't execute. I tried the command in .profile. This brings up firefox on a black screen without openbox.
Firefox comes up fine when executed from the openbox menu.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

I finally found the anwser on this page but it is specific to openbox. As per the instructions, I created file ~/.config/openbox/autostart.sh. Inside I pasted this:
# Run the system-wide support stuff . $GLOBALAUTOSTART # Programs to launch at startup hsetroot ~/wallpaper.png & xcompmgr -c -t-5 -l-5 -r4.2 -o.55 & # SCIM support (for typing non-english characters) export LC_CTYPE=ja_JP.utf8 export XMODIFIERS=@im=SCIM export GTK_IM_MODULE=scim export QT_IM_MODULE=scim scim -d & # Programs that will run after Openbox has started (sleep 2 && fbpanel) &
So now, when I fire up the EEE PC with CRUX 2.6, it pulls up openbox automatically via slim and opens Firefox in a maximised window. This is perfect for my 6 year old son!
