Newbie question - How can I modify which apps run on X startup?

Post by Vee » Mon, 23 Jun 1997 04:00:00

I'm a 3rd day Linux user and can't figure out how to change the
applications that are launched automatically on startup of Xfree86.

I tried "preferences=>save desktop to new.xinitrc" in the start menu
which sounded promising but that didn't change anything.

Any help appreciated, email even more so!

1. Newbie Question: Apps that launch on X Startup

I'm new to linux but leaning quickly.  Unfortunately, I haven't been able to
find an answer to what is (I assume) a simple issue.

I'm using Red Hat 6.1, Gnome, and Enlightenment.  When I run startx, the
Home Directory and Gnome Help Browser start up.  How do I disable this?  I
tried looking in Settings --> Startup Programs, but there's nothing listed

Thanks in advance for any assistance.
