How to start xfce4 iconbox in login.

I've started using xfce4 and I just loved it. It's very light (in comparison with KDE). Now, the only thing I wont is the iconbox to start at login, cause I must run it every time I login. I was wondering if there was a way to make it start along with the taskbar and the panel, at the start of my session.


And where were all the sportsmen who always pulled you though?

Warning ... I didn't try it myself before but it should work that way!

in /opt/xfce4/etc/ is afile called xinitrc. This is the file which is called by
startxfce4 . If you have a local version (~/.xfce4/xinitrc) this is called before.

Ther are things started like the panel, background and the taskbar.
(about line 54)  Insert  "xfce4-iconbox&" and the iconbox should be started at
startup

I did the same, shifted from KDE to Xfce4. About iconbox, I don't know how to use it... what does it do? You can add icons?? How?

Iconbox is a taskbar replacement for windows-haters  smile
Just kidding. It does basically the same as the taskbar. It provides icons
for all open applications. It changes size according to the number of open
apps, it can be set to grow vertically or horizontally. It is not an app-starter
like the panel; you can not add icons manually. Is it better/more useful than
taskbar, well it is a matter of taste.
