Hi Birt,

This one threw me for ages, I was trying to get the
VNC server running on my desktop but hated the
terminal always there.

As always the answer is simple and obvious, (they are
always the trickiest!).

Open Konqueror, navigate to

Right click in the autostart window space, select:
Create New->File->Link to Application

Give it a name in the first box, in the applet
Application, enter the command with the full path or
alternatively click on browse and look for it that

Hope this helps, regards.......KEv :)
