    For the record...

    if you're using the 'startx' command, and not the GUI login, you can edit your ~/.xinitrc file to launch programs when x is started.

    Right from the gkrellm homepage:

    [tt]
    Start GKrellM with kstart:
    kstart --window gkrellm --alldesktops --ontop --skiptaskbar /usr/bin/gkrellm
    [/tt]

    @autostart:
    /opt/kde3/share/autostart

    Btw: Where does kstart store its entries? How can I remove a program I've set up with kstart?
