How do I configure the start up applications in Kubuntu 10.04?


Hi, I had to down grade from Kubuntu 12.04 due to too many problems I couldn't find help on. Now I'm running 10.04 which runs very nice, even desktop effects work. yuuhoo! Without the newer video card, which I'm not even going to try to install that, for that's what messed the other version up!
Now all I need is to disable some start up items but I noticed the option isn't in the settings or any place. I searched google but everything needed a log in to see the answer. so I came here for help. thank you.

Just install chkconfig using apt-get and play with it

Code:
apt-get install chkconfig

Ok, it's installed but can't find it in the app launcher, so I typed it in the terminal and it's all text and I can see all the start up apps, but whoe knows how to disable some? So nope, it's too high for me, I need a graphical option. So my best bet is to just switch back to ubuntu so I'll know at least a little more how to navigate.

Thank you anyway for a least acknowledging my question and ignorance.

You can also take the kde/gui way and open systemsettings and scroll down to the setting titled 'start up and shut down'.

nVidia vs old intel onboard video (a guess, because you wont tell us what you actually have), nVidia is a long way in front.

What has messed up 'the other version' will be something that you have done. You dont have to install the closed nVidia drivers, your card should work fine with the nouveau (free open source) drivers.
