Arrow Programs run on startup


Does anyone know how to make programs such as KMix start when you log in to KDE3?

Leave them open when you leave kde and be sure to check save session or whatever it asks you to do on exit.....

alternatively put a .xsession file with all the goodies
you want to run in your home directory.

that might look like:

Code:
#!/bin/sh
# $XConsortium: xinitrc.cpp,v 1.4 91/08/22 11:41:34 rws Exp $

userresources=$HOME/.Xresources
usermodmap=$HOME/.Xmodmap
sysresources=/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xinit/.Xresources
sysmodmap=/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xinit/.Xmodmap

# merge in defaults and keymaps

if [ -f $sysresources ]; then
    xrdb -merge $sysresources
fi

if [ -f $sysmodmap ]; then
    xmodmap $sysmodmap
fi

if [ -f $userresources ]; then
    xrdb -merge $userresources
fi

if [ -f $usermodmap ]; then
    xmodmap $usermodmap
fi

# Start the window manager:
rxvt -sl 6000 -loginShell&
xosview +net -network 16000 -geometry 180x350+843+0&
xhost +192.168.1.19&
xhost +localhost&
xapm -percent -geometry 70x20+770+0&
xautolock -time 15 -locker 'xlock -mode blank'&
/usr/local/bin/tpb&
exec /usr/local/bin/fluxbox
Or, in your case, exec startkde as the last line


Cheers,
Tink

write a script of the things you want to start when kde starts, For example:
Code:
#!/bin/bash
kmix &
and put it in $home/.kde/Autostart
