autostart karamba stuff

I have superkaramba menu that I'd like to autostart when kde starts, and I've read some of the other posts on it, so, following the advice of some other posts on LQ, I wrote a shell script ( which I saved to /root/.kde/menus/, and then made a symlink to /root/.kde/Autostart like this:

contents of /root/.kde/
superkaramba ./kroller-v9.4/kroller.theme

Typed into terminal:
#> cd ./.kde/menus
#> ls (it's there)
#> chmod +x ./
#> ls (it's green)
#> ln -s ./ /root/.kde/Autostart

It still won't autostart, though.

I know it's dumb to be root all the time, but typing su is annoying.

Have you tried adding the line to your rc.local file? I have no idea if it will work. I'm just kind of throwing ideas out.
