Lazy Programmers Do...

Scripts to avoid clicking in three places once they start their computer:

1
2
3
4
5
6
7
#!/bin/bash
firefox mail.cotescu.com &
thunderbird &
pidgin &
sleep 5s
purple-remote "setstatus?status=available&message=http://radu.cotescu.com"
exit 0

This starts those three programs in the background once I log in provided that I add this script in System - Preferences - Startup Applications in Ubuntu.

Code, Linux, Ubuntu
