KDE start programs "always on top"


Hello,

I would like XMMS to start in "always on top" mode in KDE 3.2.
I did it earlier but not knowing how. I just kept putting xmms in always on top mode, untill some day it started "remembering" it. But a couple of days ago I accidentally switched it off, and since than it always starts in the normal mode.

Thanks
Relja Arandjelovic

Thanks, that worked right away. And I feel silly since I didn't think of such an obvious solution..

Ok, now I don't need any more help since it works fine. But, just out of curiosity - how could I do it (if possible) for any program, not xmms specifically?

Well, each program is unique and has it's own config files. Most can probably be set through option/prefrences in the program. Others through direct editing of the config file. Just have to do some digging on how each program uses it's configuration files.
