Humm, one question then. In startup apps, how does one go about telling it
to put kmail on workspace 10? I have added just a bare kmail and the
mailwatcher script so far, but have not rebooted.
Which brings up another reboot problem:
Somehow, I have an alternate action per reboot, which makes me reboot
twice, because every other reboot treats me like a brand new user, with
only the default 4 workspaces & lots of other missing stuff. So if I see
the pager come up with only 4 windows, I have to reboot a 2nd time to
become me again. There are two errors reported during the startup, every
time, one of which is a huge time killer of variable duration because I
can't click on the ok to clear the advisory window UNTIL the mouse is
started (keyboard is also dead at this point), which may take 15 seconds,
and has taken several minutes. This error requester is then replaced with
another, which also acts like a blocker, but given enough time, x will
start and give me a login screen anyway. I could take pix, but the list
won't take pix.
Have I the only 10-04.4 LTS system on the planet that does this?
