On Debian Lenny with KDE.
I added a command to the bottom of $HOME/.profile to open transmission so my complete .profile looks like this: (everything except the last line is default)
... # if running bash if [ -n "$BASH_VERSION" ]; then # include .bashrc if it exists if [ -f "$HOME/.bashrc" ]; then . "$HOME/.bashrc" fi fi # set PATH so it includes user's private bin if it exists if [ -d "$HOME/bin" ] ; then PATH="$HOME/bin:$PATH" fi transmission-gtk
What happens though is when I log in transmission pops up and the desktop won't load until I close it.
I thought the purpose of $HOME/.profile was to run scripts/programs when a user logs in. Am I misunderstanding its purpose?
