I think that is definitely the way to go. Maybe when kdelibs or kdebase gets
built and the install prefix is set: (i.e.
-DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=${trinity_prefix} where trinity_prefix=/opt/trinity or
/opt/kde3 etc), we set the Trinity autostart directory to:


I think it is imperative we find a way to prevent the kde4 autostart files from
running when you launch Trinity.

Also, I don't know if this can be handled with a simple modification to the
startup script "startkde" from kdebase? If so then setting the Trinity autostart
dir when kdebase is built seems like the easy way to handle this.
