How to get zeebar to launch at boot in ZevenOS 2.0

Yesterday, I explained my difficulties in getting the zeebar dock to launch at boot in ZevenOS 2.0. Well, all was explained in the reply I received to my forum post.
It appears that you must add a switch when launching zeebar to ensure it doesn't stay "under" the Desktop.
So, the correct command is "zeebar --above-desk".
However, even then I had a problem when including this command in the Autostart list as is detailed in the thread.
Overcame the problem with a very small script that delayed launch of zeebar by 10 seconds.
Incidentally, I couldn't find any facility in ZevenOS permissions to make a file executable so I had to use "chmod a+x".
