comment Running .sh every 5 minutes
Otherwise, nice research about the gnome session variables, it would help the OP a lot, since that would be required either way.

comment Running .sh every 5 minutes
@JacobVlijm a. you can post an update with attribution and link to the other answer, pretty standard b. every user has her own cron, and I didn't mention any other users c. I don't see 'no multiple runs' as a benefit, both ways impose minimal tax on the system.

I didn't see the mention of cron. As your answer is the accepted one, it would be better to add instructions for cron. There are multiple reasons why you'd prefer using cron; I can give you a few - that's the standard way for scheduled tasks; if the system restarts, it will still continue to run; crashing once won't affect subsequent runs (you won't have to check if it's still running); it already has features you may otherwise end up re-implementing, e.g. running on the same time every day, running as a different user, etc.

It's so much better to use a cron job.

comment What is the 'whoopsie' process and how can I remove it?
It's like saying "Mozilla Crash Reporter crashed firefox". Whoopsie is a crash reporting tool, so probably when some other thing crashed, whoopsie offered to send a report.

Don't install touchpad-indicator. It will mess up your installation and not add any significant options.
