On starting up Ubuntu, I seem to have to do the following, all the time:
- Enter the password for the keyring to unlock, so that it connects to wifi
- Enable the "Extra" Visual effects from the Appearances preferences
- Start skype.
How can I automate all of these.
Bonus points, if I can use the existing chat bundled in the system to use my skype account.
Also, since I dual boot, I get the grub options initially to select Windows or Ubuntu that waits for 10 seconds for me to choose. How do I make it go to ubuntu, unless I explicitly not press a key to boot to windows.
Thanks in advance.
