Start minimized??

Hi there,

It would be nice if the app could be launched minimized on boot (similar to the windows app). Are there any plans to implement this??

Cheers :)

    Hey @brettn

    Could you please share a bit about the use case here? On other systems we have integration between the desktop app and the browser extensions, which is the reason for it to launch on startup and run without any windows open. On Linux we don't have browser extension integration (yet). Maybe there are other use cases we're not aware of, beyond the browser integration?

  • It's mainly for integration between the app and extension, yes. I have assumed a browser extension will be on the way?

    Yes, the plan is to have integration between 1Password for Linux and 1Password X. :+1:

    I had the same thought as well, and there is actually already a switch for starting the 1Password client silently, so it just shows up as the appindicator, this was the necessary configuration:

    [[email protected]<hostname> ~/.config/autostart]$ cat 1password.desktop
    [Desktop Entry]
    Name=1Password
    Exec=/opt/1Password/1password --silent
    Terminal=false
    Type=Application
    Hidden=false
    X-GNOME-Autostart-enabled=true
    Icon=1password
    StartupWMClass=1Password
    Comment=Password manager and secure wallet
    MimeType=x-scheme-handler/onepassword;
    Categories=Office;

    (This works for all GNOME-systems)

    TIL. Thanks @lumarel. :)

  • You're welcome guys!
    But I think you should get the applause, that the silent switch is already in there :chuffed:
