Startup Jobs

A job is a named task with a certain set of parameters. Job's main parameters include: start method, login information, command lines, and settings.

The Startup Job Name list contains names of currently available jobs. You can create an icon for a job and choose a Program Group to contain these icons. By default, this is the StartIcons folder.

A job may be launched by double-clicking on its icon (in the StartIcons folder by default). You can have up to 512 jobs.

The Save Job As, Open Job and Remove Job buttons in the Startup window are for manipulating with Startup jobs.

The Save Job As button creates a job and adds its name to the list. The Open Job button opens a specified job for modifying. You may remove an opened job by pressing the Remove Job button.

Any changes of the Startup Job Name list are automatically displayed in the corresponding Program Group (StartIcons by default).


Saving a Job

When you click on the Save Job As button, it displays the following dialog box:

This dialog box allows you to create a job, i.e. to store current parameters under a certain name. If a job with the same name already exists, it will be overwritten; if it does not exist, the new job will be created and added to the Startup Job Name list. The default icon for the job may be changed with the Change Icon button.

Startup Job Name

This field defines a name for the job to be saved. In the drop-down box, you can view all available job names in the list.

Create Startup Icon

If this check box is checked, then a job will be displayed in the Program Group you will choose for your jobs (StartIcons by default) with an icon you will specify; otherwise the job will be only added to the Startup Job Name list.

Program Group

This field is used to specify a group to contain your job's icons (StartIcons by default). You can enter a name in the field or select a name from the Available Program Groups field. The Program Group will first be cleared and then all jobs from the Startup Job Name list (marked to Create Startup Icon) will be moved into it.

Available Program Groups

This box lets you select a group to contain your job's icons. The name will appear in the Program Group field.

Exit after Execute

If this check box is disabled, then the Startup dialog box will stay on after executing the job and you will be able to continue working on it.

Don't start XServer

If this check box is disabled, then XServer will be started up (if it is not running yet) when opening the job (or launching it by double-clicking on its icon) and before executing its commands.

Otherwise, you may open the job and execute commands which do not launch X clients and so do not require XServer (if it is not running yet).

Note that if you launch a job by double-clicking on its icon, then the job will execute in batch mode.

Change Icon

When you click on the button, it displays the following dialog box:

This box gives you a possibility to choose a suitable icon for the job to be saved. The File Name field displays a current file name and the corresponding Icon List. If you want to assign to your job an icon other than by Default, select the desired icon from the current Icon List. To change list of available icons, press the Browse button and choose a suitable icon from the Open window.


Opening a Job

When you click on the Open Job button, it displays the following dialog box:

This box allows you to view the Startup Job Name list and to select a certain job from it. After highlighting a job in the drop-down box or entering a job name into the edit field, press OK to open the job. Its parameters will be displayed in corresponding fields of the Startup window, so you can view or change them before running the job.
