Is it possible to set an application to start later in Session and Startup and if so, how?

You can use sleep to delay. To delay command for 5 seconds:

Code: Select all

sleep 5 && command

Excellent! That's what I am looking for so the icon and the application renders correctly. I add a space after the command and then add that command?

Replace the word "command" with the actual name of the program you wish to start.

It didn't work. The program didn't auto start. This was the original command that worked. "/usr/local/Astrill/astrill" /autostart I replaced it like you said like this, "/usr/local/Astrill/sleep 5 && astrill" /autostart

Didn't you notice that "sleep" is the first command, why did you stick it at the end of that string how do you image "sleep" command would run if you type something like /blah/blah/blah/sleep in front? Try that in console and see if it runs...

Because I don't know the command line! :mad: I don't have an Enigma machine to decipher it. :mad:

But what you are trying to do is to write a command, how do you want to try to write a command without understanding what you write? Why you sound proud of your lack of knowledge instead of trying to learn something?
