Rainlendar2 on FC5 7 Years, 9 Months ago  
One of the things which made Rainlendar a "keeper" for me in Windows (where i first discovered it years ago) is the Launch-on-Startup attribute of the application.

I do not see this as on option in the Linux version.

I realize it is possible to "force" Rainlendar to run after booking into KDE, or GNOME for example, but my mastery of the Linux O.S. / Desktop managers is not so advanced yet that I possess the knowledge to do it. what is the recommended method for "forcing" Rainlendar to launch on startup?

also, i missed the "installation instructions" before i installed it by extracting to a temp folder, then manually installing it to /usr/local/Rainlendar/rainlendar2/ . i figure it's okay that i've done it that way. anything wrong w/ that?

Finally, i'd like to have an icon for the launcher which i've put in the "panel". i created my own because i couldn't find anything w/ the package i downloaded. (yeah, it's lame-- now you know why i am hoping to get the "real thing")

i always enjoyed the original Rainlendar logo.

other than those minor technicalities, i'm pleased with it. having used Fedora for nearly a year now, i'm disappointed i've waited so long to install Rainlendar! this is the first i've hooked it up w/ a gmail - .ics file (err google calendar, whatever...) -- works great! (hence my desire for that auto-launch)

thanks!!<br><br>Post edited by: fedoracore, at: 2007/02/02 00:17

The FAQ has some instruction how to start applications automatically on Linux.

Here is the icon for Rainlendar in PNG format:
