[SOLVED] quick q: KDE + KDM: automatically running a program after login{


Ok, here goes:

How do I set a program to run every time KDE starts (.xinitrc is out of the question because I use KDM). I want hotkeys to run automatically.

I haven't found this on google or the documentation, anyone know this by any chance?

I think that if you put a program laucher (*.desktop file) in your ~/.kde/Autostart
This will run automatically, every time KDE starts.
