Running an app in startup.
Hi folks,

I've been trying to get the nvidia-settings app to load during startup using the "-l" switch by placing the command in .xsession and .xinitrc. Unfortunately, neither works. I'm using KDE3.2 with MDK10. Is there anywhere I can place this command?

Most login-managers (e.g. KDM and GDM) skip .xinitrc and .xsession when you specify a premade session.
A solution to this could be to set the session to default instead of KDE, and put startkde in .xsession together with nvidia-settings. Note that if you want to change desktop/wm, you have to edit the script.
As another solution, make a shell-script in ~/.kde/Autostart to launch nvidia-settings. Note that this will only work in KDE.

Thanks for the update. I'll stick with the scripts in the .kde/Autostart directory.

you can also create a desktop object, and drop it in the Autostart directory
