Fedora 2 Core Autostart


I cannot for the life of me find out where the autostart is. I need it to automatically start a ogg playlist whenever it boots. I have it automatically logging me In and I *think* i am running gnome however i cannot find out how to autostart.
Thanks
Mark

The following is an example how to auto-start the windowmonitor on GNOME;

1. Launch "Preferences" - "More Preferences" - "Sessions" from the start menu.
2. Click the "Startup Programs" tab and add the command.


The following is an example how to auto-start the windowmonitor on KDE;

1. Create a startup script to launch the window monitor.
2. Put the script in ~/.kde/AutoStart/.

.kde is a hidden map in your home directory

use
ps -aux | more
to find out if you are using gnome or kde
