Question What did I do wrong


I have RH 8.0 each time I login under KDE the last thing that happens is a GMC window is automatically started and the tree for my home directory is selected. How do I stop this from happening? What would cause a program to autostart?

Thanks

Usually something like that would be in /etc/rc.d/rc.local but this is strange because there should not be anything there unless you put it there yourself.

You can also check the scripts in /etc/rc.d/rc5.d to see if one of them is the culprit, although I doubt it.

Why is gmc starting in kde?

Probably because when you logged out it was running. Close it, log out, make sure "Save session" is checked on the logout box, then log back in again.

KDE and GNOME will attempt to restore your desktop to the state it was when you last logged out if you checked the session save button. Not all apps support the protocols though, so some things resume correctly and others don't.
