Run a python GUI app at boot before the window manager

Mon Sep 11, 2017 1:29 pm

Do you know how can I run a python GUI(GUI app with wx) at boot just before the window manager(I don't even want to see the window manager ).
I now able to autostart(by modifying the autostart file) my app but one second after the window manager. If it's possible, I don't even want to have a mouse. Anyone help?

You start your app *instead* of the window manager.

I cant guarantee that that thread gives you immediate success but the answer lies in xinit/xinitrc territory.
