    Thumbs down how stop a startup application?

    i recently installed "golden dict" in openSUSE 12.1. unfortunately in system startup, golden dict automatically starts.
    i have this problem with "workrave" application too.
    how can i prevent this applications to start at startup?

    Thank you.
    you mean i should remove "goldendict" and "workrave" from /.kde4/Autostart/?
    is there any more user friendly user interface for doing this action (such as Msconfig in Windows)?

    i could not find /.kde4/Autostart/, i look at for .kde in root hidden files and found nothing, also i searched it in alt+f2 window and the following is it's response:
    Unable to run the command specified. The file or folder file:///.kde4/Autostart does not exist.

    also i could not find system settings > system administration > startup and shutdown in KDE would you please tell me where is it?

    It would be in your home directory, not root, ie., ~/.kde4/

    From the CLI just do
    cd .kde4
    and you should be good...
