Question Automatic Idle Logout For KDE 4?


I'd like to know if there's any way to get a KDE 4 system to automatically logout a user who is idle for 15 minutes. In previous KDE systems, I could achieve this by just editing the kdesktoprc file... but I have yet to find a way to do it in KDE 4. The system I'm working with is OpenSuSE 11. Any ideas?

Thanks much!

Could you please post you old kdesktoprc? Does the new KDE not have one or what is the matter? You might also try to simply create one in the appropriate directory and see whether that works...


automatic, idle, kde, logout, timeout
