Description:

A KControl tool for managing what programs start up with KDE. (~/.kde/Autostart and ~/.kde/env), run when KDE shuts down (~/.kde/shutdown)

Known Limitations and bugs:
when launching apart for kcontrol:
clicking "Cancel" with a properties dialog open will generate a crash.
when launching inside kcontrol:
option "Reset" does not work
clicking "Reset" with a properties dialog open inserts a duplicate entry into the list of the entry which has the properties open.

Hi !

Unfortunately, this autostart is unusable with KDE 3.5.10. I have this compilation error : http://pastebin.com/f4bab7c8a

Developers can do something ?

Thanks in advance !

It would be nice if the tool could automatically (or had an option to) exclude an app added to autostart from session maganagement to prevent from running two instances of the same app at startup.

Is it possible to code a Disabled mode but leave the Autostart entry there?

I.e., say I am debugging some problem, and temporarily want to turn of some apps from autostarting, I select Disabled (rather than Startup/Shutdown/ENV) to allow me to test without having to permanently remove my autostart entry (and having to remember/re-create them again).

I think this would be useful, if easy enough to do.

Thoughts?

I was checking the code and did some research. It appears that X-KDE-autostart-condition is an entry that can be placed in a .desktop file, and allows one to check an rc file for additional conditions.

So, this could be a place to start looking for a "disable" feature by setting the condition in the rc file to false.

autostart would need to be modified to read/write out an rc file with the entry, add the disable option to the list, etc. Should be simple enough.

If I can make this work, I'll submit a patch for your perusal.

I see distro's are starting to include this in the packaging. That's great.

Perhaps it will become a part of KDE in the main trunk someday.

I have added the package to the xeffects overlay for Gentoo users. Further details at http://www.gentoo-xeffects.org.

Thanks.

Maybe you will find this interesting:

And they mention your app here (in the same thread):

That is interesting.
I'll have to look into porting this and perhaps talk about getting it in kdeadmin. From the way things look at work currently I may have a lot more free time than normal.
At the moment I can't promise anything tho.

I've run into the same issue with autostart-0.5. Perhaps the tarball is corrupt and needs to be repackaged.

oddly enough that tarball was generated by kdevelop.
But I've fixed it and renamed the directory also to its normal autostart-version layout.
Sorry it took me so long to fix this.
