Guidance needed: running an application on startup.


Greetings!

I would like to accomplish the following:

When linux boots in KDE at the login prompt I want it to log in an a certain user, open the terminal window, then issue a command in the terminal window to start our database program.

Is this possible?

in the kde control panel there is an option for doing auto-logins... you'll need to have kdm active, and you'll need to have the root password...

in konqueror, go to the "go" menu... there will be an option there called "Autostart" (~/.kde/Autostart)... now you can just create a new link in there for any app you wanna run at startup...
