While I don't use "rox -S", I do use "rox -p" to start a pinboard. The place to put the command would probably be ~/.xinitrc or ~/.xsession
One system I ran used the first method, but my current system uses the second method.
You also might want to check out the contents of "startx", but I'm assuming that this is the command used to start the desktop.

P.S. I'm new to using mailing lists (I'm more into web forums.) so I'm not sure how to format my post.

I've been happily running and using ROX on three different linux boxes

forgotten how to set up the system so that rox -S runs when the machine is
booted up! Nor can I find all my notes.

What is the simplest way to do this? I had thought that adding "rox -S" to
the etc/rc.local file might do the job. But that doesn't work on a Ubuntu
install I tried this morning. I'm fairly sure that adding a file like this
did work OK for the systems that I have doing this. but I can't recall the
details and haven't yet found the file (or my old notes).

I'll keep experimenting, but would welcome an explanation.

FWIW I plan to run Xubuntu (or maybe Mint or Crunchbang). And I prefer to
have one Xfce panel at the top of the screen with the rox panel at the
bottom.

Slainte,

Jim
