    Hi, I recently installed kubuntu, and have customized it to look the way I want and everything, but I have noticed that every time I log in, it is automaticly starting a bunch of programs and running them in the background,
    like an audio player that came with kubuntu, a messenger program that came with kubuntu,
    and various other programs that were automaticly installed when I installed kubuntu.

    Surely there is a way to stop these programs from automaticly starting at log in, but I am still a bit new to all of this...

    So could someone please give me some info to get this done either through Terminal, or through an app of some kind?

    Also, If I can remove some of these programs from auto startup, I would like to then add 1 or more programs to automaticly startup at log in.

    Cheers
    Tom

    Hi, I tried having a look in there, but the only thing that shows up in there, is
    There doesnt seem to be any individual programs in there for me to add/remove.

    Any more advice?
