Gnome Do startup problem

with 3 comments

If you have added Gnome-do to Startup Applications, sometimes after you login in Ubuntu and launch Gnome-do application selector, it doesn’t work. The issue seems to be that Gnome-do depends on some other program which needs to start first before Gnome-do starts. The issue can be fixed by wrapping the gnome-do command in a shell script which adds some delay¬† and adding that script to Startup Applications instead of gnome-do:


!/bin/bash

sleep 10
gnome-do

Save it to your $HOME/bin folder and add it to Startup Applications

Add gnome-do wrapper to startup
