I want to launch Spotify and spotify-notifier (for sound menu integration) at the same time using the same launcher. How would I do that?

Using 11.04 with Unity.

Most simple solution is by altering /usr/share/applications/spotify.desktop

Inside is a line starting with 'Exec'. Change the command used to start spotify and have it start a file instead. Create that file (make sure it is executable) with the startup commands for spotify and spotify-notifier.
