KDE autostart programs?

Hi

Im running KDE 3.5.2 on Kubuntu, and i was wondering where KDE gets information 'bout which programs should start automaticaly every time i login? Im aware of the /home/(X)/.kde/Autostart but this folder is empty?
My Kmix is starting up twice (one in the tray and one on the desktop) every time i boot with a open windows on my desktop, which i have to close everytime i bootup my maschine. How do i make it stop starting up?

Try the following:

Control Center, KDE Components, Session Manager -> On Ligin -> Start with empty session.

Or you can use Konqueror to startup scripts/program within you user profile. Very easy and until now I got no problems with it. Just run konqueror ->Go-> Autostart

Copy there your scripts you would like to run when KDE starts and that is all :-))

good luck

There must be a "registry" containing infos about which program should start up on each logon. As said before /.kde/Autostart is empty, and yet KLaptop, Klipper, 2 x Kmix, Kopete, and Skype loads along with KDE every time i boot.

Try to check the links below:
     1. http://lists.kde.org/?l=kde-linux&m=104390774204612&w=2
     2. http://forum.xfce.org/index.php?topic=2161.msg9593

Also check if there is somethnig about Kmix in the following dir: /usr/share/autostart
Check the files under this directory, you will find in them the following lines(example from ktip -> ktip.desktop):
========================================================
X-KDE-StartupNotify=true
X-KDE-autostart-phase=2
X-KDE-autostart-condition=ktiprc:TipOfDay:RunOnStart:true
========================================================

Again, I hope it helps. =0)
