Reminder to start at boot up


How can I get a reminder program such as Kontact to start up as Linux boots up?

I have Kontac installed on my EeePC.

Thanks,

Sturtp77

Think you mean when KDE starts
All you have to do is put a symlink of the .bin file that you want to start when booting kde into
/home/user/.autostart
or
/home/user/.kde/autostart

Not sure about the exact location of autostar though

Its in ~/.kde/Autostart. For Kontact specifically, an alternate way is to start it once manually, right click on the system tray icon and select 'Start Reminder daemon at login'. Assuming you're running KDE, that'll start it each time automatically.
