    Just a work around.

    What i do for stuff i want to run at startup or at whatever intervals is run a cron job from within webmin.
    I think you can go into the init.d area and create a script for there but i am not sure how to do this.
    But for me as i have full access to my system and run webmin.. i simply run cron jobs.

    If you are using KDE, you can create desktop files in ~/.kde/Autostart and enter commands to run your programs in these files e.g. for aterm, you could create an aterm.desktop and enter the command "exec aterm" or just "aterm" (both without quotes.

    Put the commands to start the script in /etc/rc.d/rc.local.

    I've never known konsole to start automatically. You could try the following:
    1) make sure Konsole is not running
    2) Kcontrol -> KDE Components -> Session Manager -> Start with an empty session
    3) Logout and back in again

    If Konsole does not run, then the problem is sorted and if you want to restore previous sessions when you login just reverse change your session settings accordingly.
