KDE auto start script problem


I'm trying to run a script that has to be run from a terminal window. I want it to autostart with KDE, but all it does it open the files in kedit. They are saved as .sh executable files. How do I go about opening a terminal window then executing the scripts?

Probably the easiest way is to create an App Link to your script in the ~/.kde/Autostart directory.

1. Open Konqueror.
2. Change to the ~/.kde/Autostart directory.
3. Right click on any empty space.
4. Choose Create/Link to Application.
5. Give it a name.
6. Click the execute tab and type the full path to your script.
7. Check "Run in terminal".
8. Click OK.

That's it

Mike
