As for the WBStartup drawer - is dragging an application in there the right way to do it? Or is my intuition right to expect a shortcut type solution/symlink?
Synergy probably works from the WBStartup drawer too, but generally programs using network are better to start from the S:user-network-startup script. Programs put there will get launched only after network is up for sure. If they are placed in the WBStartup drawer, they might get launched before networking is up and that may cause problems, delays, or such.
So, I'd put Synergy to S:user-network-startup too. You can just edit the file with a text editor and add a line for Synergy there. For example this should work:
Run >NIL: SYS:Applications/Synergy/SynergyClient
(The "Run" command launches it to background, ">NIL:" redirects any output to the NIL: device and it won't be shown)
The Run command runs a program like it'd been launched from the shell, but if program is meant to be run from the icon (it has configuration options in icon tooltypes or so), you can also launch programs like this:
The WBRun command also changes the current directory to the application's directory, so it's good to use for programs which require some datafiles from the current directory.[ Edited by jPV 12.06.2017 - 17:13 ]
