    I just installed Geektool 3 on Mac OS Lion. I like a lot the program and tuned it to my preference. Everything is fine, except the preference window that always shows up at startup. Is there any way to disable it, but at the same time not remove Geektool from login items?

    Wait for your answer! Thanks!

    In the core of a black hole.
    Look inside The Users and Groups Preference people and click on login items, is system preferences there or the Geektool Preference pane?
    Geektool should be there (the Executable file) but not it's preference pane

    Thanks for your answer. I tried what you suggested but still it does not work.
    In login items (I am logged as admin) I have:
    Geektool and Geektool Helper - so 2 items
    If I hide Geektool Helper and restart it won´t load the program with the geeklets I did. If I hide Geektool it doesn´t show the preferences window but it shows the shells as ready for edit which does´t serve neither.

    Is there any way I can make Geektool autostart, but without entering in edit mode with preferences window opening and the shells I added in edit mode?
