how do i?


I am on RedHat 9.0 and when I was 8.0 a while ago, whenever I logged off my system "status" would be saved. By status I mean, if I had mozilla, and a konsole open, next time I logged onto the system, I would have that same mozilla and konsole open. How can I do this in Redhat 9.0?

Are you running Gnome? There should be a setting you can find in your gcc (Gnome Control Center) for "save current session on exit" or something like that.

Since you mentioned konsole, you may be running kde, but there should be a similar thing in the kde control center (or whatever kde uses for config), I would think

I checked it out, and I found something that says (from memory, im on a windowz box now) "return previous status" that box was already selected but it didn't work. I also thought it might have something to do with my theme, so i tried defaul (i was on bluecurve) and the theme didn't switch either (I restarted also).

que paso?

Umm, switching distros doesn't "solve" your problems/challenges it just pushes them aside as unfinished/unaccomplished tasks.

How does buying a new car fix the flat tyre on your old one?

In 9.0 as in 8.0, when you click to close your session (log off or shut down or whatever) there is normally a check box which says "save current session on exit".

The problem (and I looked at some of your old threads) is that you don't usually provide enough information in your original post for people to be able to answer your question. So they have to ask for clarification, which drops you out of 0 replies and makes you less visible.

For starters, you really should fill out which distros you use in your profile. Secondly, realize that nobody is getting paid to answer your questions, so you might want to check the attitude at the door.

This is a link to a page by Eric S. Raymond about how to ask questions. It is a very well written set of instructions. Much of it presupposes you are asking a question of a bunch of uber-hackers rather than a like minded community made up of everyone from the weekend hobbyist who id just feeling their way to elite programmers. But it is still valid.

To be truthful, I do not ask questions in the best way - but this is a good place to learn how to (for me also).

If I see a question entitled "help" or "how do I...", I will often click on it just to see what it is. Because I'm nosy. Most of the time I will then not answer it because it is outside of my knowledge or there isn't enough information to form a judgement on whether or not I can answer it. I believe that many people have the same reaction. The thread starter then sees that 20+ people have viewed the question and no one has answered it and so they get frustrated.

The moral of the tale for all of us is ask clear questions and provide loads of answers.
