kde booting procedure


I fail to understand what KDE does when u boot. When I leave any applications open, I find it open after the reboot. Is it like the hibernate function of windows? In win, when u restart u know that it is "fresh", whereas in linux i feel like each time I restart it takes a little longer than before!

This arises a really big issue. I got an app in the startup folder. If I have it open before closing the pc, I got two instances trying to run at the same time. Should I simply remove that app from the autostart?

I would be really glad if somebody could enlighten me!
Thank you!

kde 'remembers' what programs you have running when you shut it down, writes them to a config file, and starts them up the next time you start kde. So if you don't want this, then close all your apps before shutting down, or disable 'restore session'.

This is why you get two instances of the same app, one from autostart, and one from restore session.

So u know where that config file is? Which program writes to that config file? And finally where can I disable the restore session?

Thx for the answer

Go to 'Control Centre' in the KDE menu, then click 'KDE Components', then click 'Session Manager', then chose 'Start with an empty session'.

I'm assuming you're using KDE 3.
