Shared X start-up file.

I used to rotate among six desktop environments/window managers. However, not all of them support XDG autostart (see IBusStartUpTroubleShooting for reference).

Fortunately, there is a place for set once, all enjoy, namely, /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/.

So put following script at that directory:

#!/bin/sh
if [ -x "$HOME/.xstart" ]; then
        source $HOME/.xstart
fi

And put whatever you like in ~/.xstart

🙂
