KDE edit programs automatically started on startup

Hey guys, how do i edit what programs are launched at startup ?

i forgot to un-check auto-mount when i installed my system.

is it safe to just rpm -e the package ?

or will i get command not found errors from whatever script is launching it ?

Startup of KDE

theres ~/.kde/autostart

It helps if you say what program.

Some are controlled through init which has nothing to do with KDE. You can edit thoose through the SysV init editor under the System Menu.

Some through bash files etc...

Edit: Must read the posts more thoroughly

Should be under the SysV init editor for automount.
SImply delete it from the run levels and save.

automount defines mountpoints for autofs.
autofs can be stopped in services.

gui - kdemenu / system setting / server settings / services.

kde doesn't start it itself. most stuff is started in the rc* scripts in /etc
