    Startup File


    Hi all

    On Knoppix 3.7, where/what file would I look for to edit Startup Items?

    For instance, I dont want/need cups running or apache, etc. But I do want to add vncserver to the list...

    Thanks

    If its a GUI application that you want to start
    Code:
    ln -s </path/to/app> ~/.kde/Autostart/
    If its a console
    Code:
    rc.local &#40;most likely /etc/rc.d/rc.local&#41;.

    unless you know exactly what your doing, you can venture in this path. Make sure you keep a backup of the file you change

    Hi

    Ok i thought I would try remove some tuff I dont need running at startup...

    But in /etc/ I have rc0.d, rc1.d, etc etc...

    Which do I edit?

    I tried rc0.d first, do I just delete the shell scripts to the process I dont want? E.G I want to stop pure-ftpd running, so I delete the link to it, correct?

    Thanks
