Between restarts, sort of. You can create a startup entry (depends on the desktop) to auto start kdocker with your desired apps.

I'm using the Elementary OS Luna distro, it uses Ubuntu 12.04. There is a startup app in the system settings. What would I enter to create a startup entry? It asks for Name, Command, Comment. What would be the command? Thanks.

Something like:

kdocker command_to_run

or

/full/path/to/kdocker /full/path/to/command/to/run

For example:

kdocker /usr/bin/gedit

Thanks. That does work but the set icon doesn't show upon a restart, it just shows the default icon. Also on some apps I get this error: http://i.imgur.com/Rdb9qpE.jpg Is there anyway to make it 10 seconds instead of 5 seconds? I'm using Kdocker 4.5 btw, as that's what was in the software center. Does Kdocker 4.8 fix any of these issues? Thanks once again for your help.

I figured out the icon issue:

kdocker -i "/usr/share/icons/Circles/typefilename.png" /usr/bin/typeappnamehere

Used that for the command and it works on startup with the icon I want. Yay!

Does the 5 seconds issue in the image above have to do with Elementary OS/Ubuntu's own parameters? I'll look into it...

Figured out the time issue:

kdocker -d 30 -i "/usr/share/icons/Circles/typefilename.png" /usr/bin/typeappnamehere

-d 30(or however many seconds you want to give it time to open, 5 seconds is the default)

In terminal type: kdocker -h for more options .

 Thanks once again.
