DSBAutostart don't work

Hello everyone,
after the installation of py38-xdg as suggested in another post, i tried to configure DSBAutostart like this
but at reboot it don’t work.
Even with a complete path to the applications it don’t work.

Any suggestions?



what happens when you run /usr/local/libexec/openbox-xdg-autostart in a terminal? Are there any error messages?

This the output. “Mamma mia!” say an italian when there is confusion like this.

The output looks OK, so far. Could you please post the content of the desktop file for firefox under ~/.config/autostart/?

borgio@NomadBSD ~/.c/autostart> ~/.config/autostart/
borgio@NomadBSD ~/.c/autostart>

Find the desktop file for your firefox autostart entry:

% grep -i firefox ~/.config/autostart/*.desktop`

Then post its content here.

borgio@NomadBSD ~> % grep -i firefox ~/.config/autostart/*.desktop
fish: Unknown command: ‘%’

borgio@NomadBSD ~ [127]> grep -i firefox ~/.config/autostart/*.desktop
borgio@NomadBSD ~ [1]>

What version of NomadBSD are you running? According to your screenshot and the absence of any .desktop files under ~/.config/autostart, I seems you’re using an old version of DSBAutostart, which uses ~/.config/DSB/autostart.sh.

As you can see, i installe NomadBSD 130.

Can i create the autostart directory?

Actually i have the autostart dyrectory, but the file autostart.sh is under ~/.config/DSB/ directory. Can i move that file under ~/.config/autostart/ directory?

Proceed as follows:

% sudo pkg delete dsbautostart
% git clone https://github.com/mrclksr/DSBAutostart.git
% cd DSBAutostart && qmake && make
% sudo make install

Then create the autostart desktop files from your autostart.sh:

% dsbautostart -c < ~/.config/DSB/autostart.sh

Thanks a lot.
All went well.
The system is PERFECT!!! :sparkling_heart:
