I use my netbook mostly for playing music or the radio, using Banshee and the browser, e.g. Last.fm. I’d like to be able to turn on the radio with minimal fuss in the mornings. Here’s how I set it up so that it starts BBC Radio 4, i.e. I just press the power button and the rest is automatic.
- Set Ubuntu to auto-login
- Go to “Startup applications…” and add the command
- Bob’s your uncle
This assumes that the Google Chrome browser is installed. Other browsers should work similarly.
