Starting Notion

With a login manager

To start/select Notion from most login managers, a standard .desktop file can be created in the /usr/share/xsessions/ directory. An example notion.desktop file can be found below:

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Notion
Comment=This session logs you into Notion
Exec=/usr/bin/notion
TryExec=/usr/bin/notion
Icon=
Type=XSession

See the display manager article for more details.

With xinitrc

You can start Notion from the command line by adding exec notion to ~/.xinitrc or any other startup script you may want to use. An example .xinitrc file can be found below.

DEFAULT_SESSION=notion
case $1 in
awesome) 
                   exec awesome
                   ;;
notion) 
                   exec notion
                   ;;

                   exec openbox-session
                   ;;
