    Autostart.sh and daemons


    I have search google and ArchWiki and youtube and I cannot find it anywhere. In order to start pypanel at start up I thought I could but it in autostart.sh. However that didn't work. It doesn't seem practical to put it in the daemons either. I'm pretty much at a loss

    Hello and welcome!

    I've used autostart.sh files before to start pypanel and it worked but you can also add the following to your .xinitrc file:

    Code:
    pypanel &
    That goes on a line before any window manager that is to be started.

    Hmm for some reason it did not work. I'm not sure why. I did eventually fix the problem in session manager. I would have preferred to have it work using .xinitrc but oh well. Thanks for the response
