Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

When KDE started,KOrganizer also started with the system.
I have right click the KOrganizer's icon on the task bar,and select the second item that donnot start with the system.But it doesn't work.
How can I stop it from starting with system.
When you right click and select Quit, you should get a window that gives you the option to select whether to have organiser start up at the same time as the desktop. Check the box Do not ask me again and click on the No button.
Since you say, you have already selected Do not start with system(and that is what aes canis seems to suggest),try closing it and every other window in kde and logout.
Then login again. Most probably you have restore previous desktop on, so every time
you start kde, whatever applications you had running when you last logged out, will start running.
Hope this solves your problem.
I made my comment, because I have found, with KDE, there sometimes seems to be two solutions - one usually found in an options menu, the other just seems to 'pop-up' when you do something like shut it down manually. Sometimes one works whilst the other doesn't.
Do like above (shut off the service, and confirm) then POWEROFF the system, then boot backup, That'll tell KDE to save it's current state. For some reason, the reboot command doesn't cause the state to save.
Ok, it worked fine for about 10 reboots then this morning it was back. I changed the sleep time to 30. So now it showed up again then after about 5 seconds it was killed. I wonder if KDE is adapting like the Borg and this effort is futile?
