Shutdowm items folder on X?

Message #1 - Posted 2004/06/10 - Jan E. Schotsman

Hello,

I am trying to use Retrospect Express 5 the way I am still using it on Mac OS 9. I like to put run documents in the shutdown items folder but I don't see the X equivalent.
How do I handle this?

TIA,

Jan.

Have a look at Login and Logout hooks supported by the LoginWindow Manager utility available from VersionTracker.

There are 10 kinds of people in the world:
those who understand binary, and those who don't.

I do understand binary but I would still prefer something easier. Putting an alias of a Retrospect Run document in the shutdown folder is more mac-like than having to write your own shell scripts.
