I want to launch Clementine every time I start my PC, and I want it to be minimised (only tray icon) and playing music. I added it to Startup Applications. What do I do next?


Create a playlist in Clementine. Then add the following commands into Startup Applications separately.

clementine -y
clementine -p
  • What command is responsible for what? I only want to start it minimized but without playing music. Can you explain the both commands shortly? – byf-ferdy Mar 13 '14 at 16:57
  • I think, newer versions already starts minimized without playing music. Have you tried? – Hckr Mar 13 '14 at 23:06
  • This won't work these days. The -y option now does this: "Toggle visibility for the pretty on-screen-display". But, in the Clementine settings, there is an option, "When Clementine starts: Always hide the main window", so maybe you could figure out something. – wjandrea Jun 19 '16 at 20:11
  • Maybe just two entries are required to make it work. – SkorpEN Jul 12 '16 at 7:53
