[vdr] Autostarting xine

Hello.

I want to do 2 things with VDR.

1) Autostart Xine pointing to the VDR MRL when user 'vdruser' logs in
        Can anyone tell me what command line I should use, and where I 
should put it?  I tried putting 'xine -L --fullscreen --geometry 
720x576 --borderless --hide-gui --no-logo --no-splash 
vdr://tmp/vdr-xine/stream#demux:mpeg_pes'   as follows :

[vdruser at media ~]$ less ~/.gnome2/session-manual
[Default]
num_clients=1
0,RestartStyleHint=3
0,Priority=70
0,RestartCommand='xine -L --fullscreen --geometry 
720x576 --borderless --hide-gui --no-logo --no-splash 
vdr://tmp/vdr-xine/stream#demux:mpeg_pes'

but that doesn't work


2) Create a shortcut Desktop icon that launches the VDR MRL under Xine.
For this, I tried making an icon :
[vdruser at media Desktop]$ cat ~/Desktop/Xinevdr.desktop
[Desktop Entry]
Version=1.0
Encoding=UTF-8
Name=No name
Type=Application
Exec=xine -L --fullscreen --geometry 
720x576 --borderless --hide-gui --no-logo --no-splash 
vdr://tmp/vdr-xine/stream#demux:mpeg_pes
TryExec=
X-GNOME-DocPath=
Terminal=true
Name[en_US]=Xine2
GenericName[en_US]=
Comment[en_US]=

But this doesn't work either.

Any ideas?
