ICEWM-STARTUP(5) Standards, Environments and Macros ICEWM-STARTUP(5)

NAME

 icewm-startup - icewm startup configuration file

SYNOPSIS

 $ICEWM_PRIVCFG/startup
 $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/icewm/startup
 $HOME/.icewm/startup
 /etc/X11/icewm/startup
 /usr/share/icewm/startup

DESCRIPTION

The startup file contains commands to be executed on icewm startup. This is an executable script. Typically the commands tweak X11 settings and launch some applications that always need to be active. It is run by icewm-session(1) when icewm starts.

EXAMPLES

 #!/bin/bash
 xset r rate 250 32
 flameshot &
 volumeicon &
 redshift-gtk &
 picom -b

Remember to "chmod +x ~/.icewm/startup". The first line must be a hash-bang, followed by the path of your script interpreter or shell.
