the Q says it all. Give suggestions. OS windows.

Write a bat script that contains the command needed to start your program(make sure you use the full path to the source file). Place that bat script in your startup folder. I hate windows so I can't remember where the damn folder is but you could figure that out.

Note: You might want to use `javaw` as opposed to `java` to start the program.

thank you, i'll try that bat thing but I'm not sure it will work cuz i've tried similar strategies in the past. But i'll try. I couldve quit using windows long ago but both linux distros i installed were terribly hard to use imo, i saw Sudo in ubuntu with no explanation on the meaning. How am i suppose to know what it means? How do i install/uninstall an application? (with windows easy with ubuntu/fedora a convoluted process With no xplanation) .

Let me know how it goes. Post up the steps you took if something goes wrong. Quick Google search gave me this:

Yeah a transition from windows to a UNIX system is a big one. Personally, I was using Windows, Linux(Virtual Box and Uni computers) and Mac OSX all at once. That way I was able to easily try things out without getting frustrated. After realizing how much suffering i've been going through on Windows(after 3 weeks lol), I switched to a Mac.

I advise you do the same.. Install Ubuntu on VirtualBox. Try things out. If you need help understanding terminal commands, use `man`, short for manual. For instance, need help understanding sudo, just run `man sudo` and read! Youtube has a lot of short videos on how to use these commands too.. A lot of blog posts too. Google is also your friend.

i'll run the code on tuesday (2 days hence).
had a nasty experience last time i tried using ubuntu - had to do with documentation - how to perform basic tasks on windows on it like - how to install a new software( this was twisted), how to play music,videos , how to uninstall and the directory structure of ubuntu was un-natural . booting into ubuntu was ugly - i quickly got fed up and switched back to windows problem was the partitioned section of the drive i hosted ubuntu on was invisible to windows! .. linux , unix systems are terribly poorly documented for lay end users.

ok. Finally got the program to run but it was messy process. Steps. Create a .bat file that runs the java class 2.) create a shortcut to this bat file - a .lnk file aka symbol link file 3.) copy the .lnk file to start folder of your system ("rootdrive":/documents and settings/alluser/start programs (folder name has start in it) 4.) restart the system . When system starts, the console screen (batch file starts the app).

please, the linux kernel is not poorly documented.. It just so happens that not everything can be done with a GUI..
