KDE 4.x and Autostart

September 3, 2009

I was told by some fellow Linux guys that with KDE 4.x there is no Autostart possible anymore. I just wanted to write this blog post to show them that it is still possible even if it not in the KDE menu. Just create following directory if it does not exists

mkdir ~/.kde/Autostart

Some distributions may use .kde4 instead of .kde. Now just place a symlink into this directory with a command like this one for dropbox.

ln -s ~/.dropbox-dist/dropbox ~/.kde/Autostart/dropbox

At least on my Kubuntu systems with KDE 4.3.x that works. ;-)
