Startup Applications

I have Fedora 11 on a KDE environment but lately, when I start up a few applications starts up automatically. Where can I disable all automatic startup app's?

Hi -

It depends on which "app" you're talking about.

First, look at your system services:
System > Administration > Services
From there, you might want to look at system startup scripts under /etc/rc*.d

Finally, you can use "ps aux" or "top" to help identify what you're looking for.

'Hope that helps .. PSM
