I noticed the new version of enlightenent 0.16.8 had a few changes, among them the ability to run scripts at startup and a system tray.
Nice features, so off I went to get the new version. It wasn't available as a deb yet, so I figured I'd compile it. It went off without a hitch.
I had trouble with esound not running, I didn't like the new configuration dialog, and hated that they had changed menus around.
I figured, how hard could it be to create a patch to run a script at start up.
Enlightenment will look for a file startup.sh in your enlightenment directory. If it finds it, it will attempt to run it.$ apt-get source enlightenment
Started browsing source files and added five or six lines and done.$ fakeroot debian/rules binary
Adjust as needed for your local package manager.
Hey, it's only 7 lines of code. Leave the attribution attached if you use it as is. You might get blamed for sloppy, untested code if you don't.
