    How to Run an app at the Start up?


    Can any body tell me how can made my application written in Qt to run on startup i.e as soon as i log on to the system.

    Is there any thing like windows registry in linux for managing all these things?

    I believe your /etc/rc.d directory is where you want to look.

    If you are using KDE - which I assume you are since you mentioned QT, then check out this directory.
    ~/.kde/Autostart

    /etc/rc.d is for non - gui apps I believe?
