Changing gui startup on mythbuntu?
Posted on 2008-11-10
When my mythbuntu 8.10 system boots, it's launchs the xfce desktop.
Once xfce is ready, the mythtv frontend get launched.
What i want to do is...
1) leave the backend alone completely!
2) NOT launch the frontend on boot (but i still want it installed so i can manually start it when needed)
3) when xfce desktop has loaded do the following automatically...
sudo xset led 3
sudo xset -dpms
sudo xset s off
sudo xset s noblank
sudo xset s noexpose
sudo xvattr -a XV_COLORKEY -v 66048
then open a terminal, maximise it to fill the desktop and run this command within it...
while true; do df -Th; mythtv-status -c -e --encoder-details; sleep 15; clear; done
I don't know how to change the startup routinue for xfce so some help would be most useful.
Hope that all makes sense, let me know if not.
