    Default Autostart in KDE Questions

    I am running OpenSuSE 11.2 (64-bit) KDE Version 4.3.5. I currently have 3 programs starting when KDE starts (Konsole, Amarok and Skype). I set them up by going to:

    Kmenu / System Setting / Advanced / auto start

    and I was wondering if there is a way to set them to start minimized or on a different desktop other than desktop 1.

    Thanks

    You can do this by using the command kstart.
    To start an application minimized use the parameter --iconify.
    And to start an application on a specific desktop you can use the parameter --desktop <Desktop number>.

    Go to System Setting->Advanced->Autostar.
    Replace your commands with this one:
    Code:
    kstart --iconify --desktop <Desktop number> <Application command>
    Good luck!
    Where did I put my coffee cup?
    dir -R /home/* | grep "coffee cup"
