You need a pipe command as in "mkdir -p ~/.config/autostart && cp /usr/share/applications/plank.desktop ~/.config/autostart/"

Is there a way to set the program to a certain workspace? i.e. atom opens in workspace 2, terminator and spotify in workspace 3?

Not at this point but it's an interesting concept. I guess you're a previous i3 user? :)

I'd suggest submitting a feature request here so it can be looked at

You could try to use the autostart function in Budgie Desktop Settings?

Tried that and when reboot -- it disappears...

Also tried dcron but that doesn't work either (Im not new to crontab and cron jobs)

systemd.timers etc might work as i also want to run a script once a day, but its hurting my poor brain...lol
Love Solus .. nice looking system.. love to get these two things going and I am all set. (the one I want to start at reboot is syncthing-gtk

Thanks for any help !!!
