 time between tips

Hi sagod,

Could you please tell me how to extend the time between tips? Right now, tips come up once every minute, its just too much for me. I would rather have it come up once every 45 minutes or 1 hour.

Other than that, I love the app.

Hi!

It's easy to set time between tips:
left mouse click on the Ubuntu Tips icon and select 'Preferences...' item. Then you can set 'Refresh time' so long as you wanna.

Oh, its just takes a left click to get to preferences - I only tried right clicking before.

Okay, this app is perfect! I just have to figure out how to make it start with Ubuntu!

Thanks again,

Hey,

Sorry to bug you again, could you help me add this program to my start up list?

I clicked on System -> Preferences -> Start Up Applications

and found the folder for Ubuntu Tips Applet. There are a few different files there though, which one should I click to add this applet to my start-up list? (Or is there another way to do this?)

You should select /usr/share/ubuntu-tips-applet/ubuntu-tips-applet.py in the Startup apps, yeah.
