    starting mozilla on logon


    Hi, I've created a user and edited the bash_profile so that when they login, this particular user goes straight to X
    What I would like to do now is get mozilla to fire up once X has come up.
    I've added a mod on mozilla so that it becomes a kiosk style browser from:
    http://stlouis-shopper.com/~jtjsoftw...osk/index.html
    I added a new button on the panel to launch mozilla and when this is done, the kiosk brower starts.
    So, what I would like to do is get this to start on X login. How do I go about it?
    Thanks

    thanks for the reply - I've been looking around the kiosk project site a little more and noticed that they mention using twm kiosk manager to be able to do this.:
    http://stlouis-shopper.com/~jtjsoftw...twm-kiosk.html
    and also
    http://stlouis-shopper.com/~jtjsoftw...jim-kiosk.html
    there was a final page I read about editing xsession for that user which I tried to do by editing the inittab:
    http://stlouis-shopper.com/~jtjsoftw...ury-kiosk.html
    but when testing I just ogt a message about it spwaning too fast.
    I guess I'll keep on cracking at it.
    Do you know if you can run twm with Redhat window manager - I installed gnome. Shouldn't be any problems should there? (haha)
    thanks
