ROX-Session can automatically start certain applications or daemons for you (e.g. xscreensaver, gkrellm, deskmenu, etc.).

Bring up the menu over ROX-Session's icon (the EXIT sign) and choose Auto Start... to open the AutoStart directory.

You can either create a small shell script directly in this location or create a link to the executable file.

For example:

exec gkrellm2

If the application does not automatically run in the background it may stop ROX-Session from loading. In this case be sure to force it to run as a background task thus:

xrdb /.xdefaults
gnome-clipboard-daemon &

Don't forget to make your scripts executable. You can temporarily disable AutoStart items by removing the executable bit from their permissions.
