kde system tray configuration startup / quit question.

What would be the best way to manually configure the KDE system tray. I may want to add / remove programs.
At the moment I get some programs running which I quit manually. How can I prevent them from loading at startup ? Also the reverse. How can I load programs to the system tray at startup. Is there a file which one can edit manually ?

It would be helpful if you gave us some examples.

I had trouble with programs (eg amarok) embedding themselves in the system tray when I did not want them there. The solution was to go through amarok's menus until I found the option for "Embed in system tray" and un-check it.

To add things to the system tray, R-click it and "Add Application / Applet".

You might also want to check your System Services -> KDE Components -> Session Manager (Distro-specific reference -you may have to search through your GUI config settings) and set it for "Restore manually saved session" or "Restore previous session" - experiment with these settings to see how they affect your KDE startup. It's pretty intuitive.

I have mine set to "Restore manually saved session", and when my desktop is just right I can do K -> "Save session". This will then be restored at my next login. Neat.
