Sure! Go to "Preferences -> More Preferences -> Sessions", "Startup Programs" tab and add a call to "/usr/bin/gdesklets".

If your running FC2 that won't be in there. (the menu system)

However, if you have it running, log out of X and click "save current session" and it'll startup the next time X does.

I know there's also stilla command line way to get the session preferences up but I forget what tyhe command is. (A search should find this though)

In FC2, it can be found at /usr/bin/gnome-session-properties under the Stsrtup Programs tab.

right, this features doesn't exist direcly in the menu ... :-)

But i ran gnome-session-properties and it's OK now :-)

I think that i will add a nex .desktop to access it more quickly :-)
