Awn

Add auto-start option to prefs dialog

Registered by Andrew Starr-Bochicchio on 2008-01-13

In order to make enabling AWN to automatically begin with each session. An auto-start option could be placed in awn-manager. This would make it so the user would not have to manually configure their session to start awn. Other programs, like screenlets-manager, have implemented this and could be looked at for examples. Both screenlets-manager and awn-manager are written in python.

In Ubuntu Gnome at least, adding a command to the start up programs list in the session manager seems to simply add a desktop file to ~/.config/autostart

It shouldn't be to hard to implement a check box which creates an awn desktop file in that location when checked and deletes it when unchecked.

It's going to need to be reimplemented for the next prefs dialog, which will be written in Vala. (malept, 20090430)
