KDE Other Utility

KDelayStart lets you specify some commands to launch when KDE is started and gives you a small delay to easily cancel their execution.

In concrete terms, it is useful if you usually want to automatically start applications like Kopete or Konversation, but don't sometimes (for example, because you don't want your contacts to see you connected when the clients autoconnect). You can also delay the launch of other applications like Compiz or Beryl if you don't need them.


1. Start kdelaystart and write some commands (one per line) in the configuration dialog
2. Set a number of seconds before the commands are executed
3. Add "kdelaystart --countdown" in "~/.kde/Autostart"

The next time you start KDE, you will see a small icon with a countdown in the system tray. If you click on this icon before the end of the countdown, the commands will not be executed.

 tarball issues

 by apachelogger on: Jun 25 2007
Score 50%

I'm currently creating a Kubuntu package. Unfortunately there are some issues with the 0.1 tarball.

* never, _never_ create the makefiles with unsermake (i.e.
* you didn't run make distclean before making the tarball, so it's actually somewhat compiled
* you should replace your admin directory with the latest version from KDE SVN
* the source directry should be named kdelaystart-VERSION instead of just kdelaystart

I'd really appreciate if you fixed these issues as soon as possible

I'm very glad that you want to create a kubuntu package but unfortunately, I'm really a beginner, especially for all the compilation/make... things :-/

So I don't know why I use unsermake by default, I though I ran "make distclean" with KDevelop (but obviously not), I don't know how to replace my admin directory with the latest version from KDE SVN and don't know how to rename the source directory...

Moreover, I deleted the content of the debug directory to make my tarball lighter... it compile but it was maybe an error ?

If you have some time to help me (maybe do the fixes and, even better, write me a few lines to explain me how you do this), I'll really appreciate and my future apps should be better :)

nb: if you do something, you can add the it.po located here : http://danakil.free.fr/linux/kdelaystart/po
(thanks to Lorenzo Combatti !). If you don't have the time, don't bother :-)

Followed instructions and next time KDE starts the Configuration Dialog appears (no icon in tray). If I close the dialog and manually start the link in Autostart, the countdown starts fine (and it does run the command as selected at the end of countdown).
I removed link in Autostart and still the Configuration Dialog opens when KDE starts (even if I choose not to restore the session).
Also found I lost few applications that used to autostart with KDE (Ksensors, ksmarttray, klineakconfig, Kerry Beagle Search).
It's a good thing I had a recent backup.
I tried "0.1-1.guru.suse10.2@" both i686 and x86_64. No difference.

openSUSE 10.2 (X86-64)
Linux x86_64
KDE: 3.5.7 "release 74.1"
Dual Core AMD Opteron(tm) 185
Speed: 2,925 MHz RAM: 2 GB
nVidia GeForce 7900 GT/GTO (SLI=on)

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
