Last night I was surfing the Web when I had a thought. “Why do I have to open multiple tabs for my favorite websites every single time I log in?”
I use Chrome for the same stuff everyday; my September playlist on YouTube, Google Drive, Arstechnica, and Twitch. Yet, here I am opening tabs. Typing and clicking. Like a common man.
So I did the obvious thing. I wrote a script.
The script, PizzaTime.sh, opens a series of tabs in the Chromium browser. It took some playing around to get it right, but now it runs like a charm. But that was only part of the battle. To run it, I still have to select the script from the home directory.
I did some research on stackexchange before realizing Linux Mint 17.2 has a utility for easing this process. There is an applet called Startup Applications for moments like these. It allows you to add/remove applications/commands that run after logging in to the system. I added PizzaTime to the list, and it was done.
Now, when I log in, it’s PizzaTime! After five seconds, Chrome opens with Arstechnica, Google Drive, and Twitch along with the lyrical stylings of my September playlist on YouTube.
If you wanna tell the computer it’s PizzaTime, download my script here.
