This question already has an answer here:
This question has two components:
- Make a website like Outlook 365 into an app. (One approach I describe below is to use Google Chrome / Chromium)
- Open that app automatically on log-in. This is the tricky bit, and is the reason I'm asking.
The reason I want to do this is because I want to get email and calendar notifications without needing to remember to browse to Outlook 365.
So far, I've used Chromium to put the app onto my Desktop folder. But I'm having trouble getting it to start automatically. I've added the following command into
cd ~/Desktop; gtk-launch chrome-mfelnnlfnkpgnoponopclbnbogfgjmje-Default. But the app doesn't start when I log in.
This question is not a straightforward duplicate of How do I start applications automatically on login?, because the GUI based approaches don't work in this case. The non-GUI based approach described in one of the answers does.
