Dear folks,

I have resurrected an old AMD-K6 Machine and have installed FreeBSD
9.2 on it and have installed icewm as the desktop.  Simple desktop.  I
have installed an application tilem2 which is a calculator emulator
found in /usr/ports/emulators/tilem/

On other machines I have a desktop entry in
~/.config/autostart/

$ cat ~/.config/autostart/tilem2.desktop
[Desktop Entry]
Type=Application
Exec=/usr/local/bin/tilem2
Hidden=false
X-GNOME-Autostart-enabled=true
Name[en_US]=tilem2
Name=tilem2
Comment[en_US]=tilem2
Comment=tilem2

$

I created a file called startup which includes
#!/bin/sh

/usr/local/bin/tilem2 &

and it is executable, I also copied this file to
~/.icewm/startup

but tilem2 does not launch at startup.  Any ideas/tips to fix this are
greatly appreciated.

Best Regards,


Antonio
