How to start vino server at boot under KDE


I'm running CentOS 6.3 and was running Gnome as my desktop. Under this config I was able to have Vino server automatically start at boot. I have since switched to KDE and Vino no longer automatically starts. How can I configure it to automatically start under KDE or any other desktop?

BTW, vino-server is started under KDE when I execute vino-preferences from a command line to view the configuration GUI for vino. After this, I can remote into the machine. I just need to figure out how to start vino at boot.

Thanks

Thanks. I tried it and it worked, but it didn't work.
I tried calling "./usr/libexec/vino-server" from the rc.local file and it did not start vino.
Next, I created a script called "stvino.sh" that calls "./usr/libexec/vino-server" and added it to the rc.local file and it still didn't start vino. I added a copy command to the script to verify that it was being executed and it was. The file copy worked, but still no vino server.

Can someone tell me if I'm using the correct command to start vino server?

I use xubuntu 12.04, so I'm not familiar with the setup of KDE. However, I would think you need to get into the "session and startup" setting, or something similar and create a new startup application. then where it has you type in a command in the "command" field, type "/usr/lib/vino/vino-server".
