Is it possible to integrate tomboy a bit more during startup? I'm using on a kind of index-note where I always start the program. Maybe it can show up open every time I log in? (See pictures)

I hope there is a plugin or something.

You can do this by executing the command

tomboy --open-note <Note Title>

In your example this would be tomboy --open-note TODO

How to add this to your startup applications is described here: How do I make a program auto-start everytime I log in?
