Slackware - KDE - Autostart


Hi all.
I would like to run many programs after login - startx.
I pasted many program.desktop in ~./kde/Autostart and it works very well.

ls ~/.kde/Autostart/

aMule.desktop
kopete.desktop
mozilla-firefox.desktop
skype.desktop
konsole.desktop
kvirc.desktop
mozilla-thunderbird.desktop


Is it possible to open many tabs in firefox, in order to have automatically google, linuxquestions and many other open tabs?
The same for konsole: an user session and a root session?
Is it possible only with Autostart folder or could I edit some file, somewhere?

About Firefox: Under "Preferences" --> "General" edit the Homepage settings. For Google and LQ.org type in "http://www.google.com|http://www.linuxquestions.org" and both will be opened in tabs if you start Firefox.

You usually should also be able to edit your $HOME/.xinitrc file. Before the final "startkde" add some lines with the apps you want, IMHO you have to close the lines with an ampersand & to start them in background. At least, that's what I do using IceWM. KDE can handle sessions so that the programs you had opened should be restored at startup.
