start many programs at the same time

Added by over 3 years ago

My previous openbox's startup file wasn't good because firefox, liferea,... wait for the stardict.

The key is that we have start some programs in the background. We have to use the eval otherwise the error occurs (command not found).

appso="firefox3 pidgin claws-mail liferea" 

/sbin/ping -t 2 -c 1

if [ $? -eq 0 ]; then
        apps="$apps $appso" 

st="echo 1" 
for a in $apps; do
        st="$st ; (/usr/local/bin/$a &)" 

eval $st

It works fine now.
