    gnome2 login script

    Hi,

    Does anyone know where I put a login script in Gnome2 ?
    I don't mean a .bashrc. I need something that runs as a script for the logged in user when they log in to gnome.

    Startup applications just puts a .desktop file into .config/autostart.
    I suppose I could link the .desktop file to a script but what is a more elegant solution please ?

    TIA

    I think I fixed it. It seems .bashrc does work on gnome login, not just when running a bash shell as I presumed.
    I had mistakenly set the login shell to /bin/sh which is where I got confused.
