    Commands at startup auto-style.


    Hallo,

    I want to run some commands automatically at the startup of KDE (3.2...Mandrake 10.1). These commands are to set up my modem (for some reason I have to run these commands before it is recognized). These commands need root privileges, which I have. How can I have this done at startup automatically? Thanks and sorry for any repeat posting.

    You must add the command to one of the files in /etc/init.d such as boot.local

    If these are just trivial commands that you don't want to run in the /etc/init.d file, or you just want to run in KDE, then go to ~/.kde/Autostart and add any script or application shortcut you want run. This is where I leave my Superkaramba and Ksmoothdock startups.
