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.


Hello GSVRasputin,

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:

kstart --iconify --desktop <Desktop number> <Application command>

Good luck!:wink:

Nice explanation Edward. I’ve learnt something new. :slight_smile:

Cheers, worked a treat.

Again thanks a lot,
