How do I disable WBar on startup in Vector 5.9 SOHO?
« on: November 10, 2009, 02:05:11 am »
Hi. I'm running Vector 5.9 SOHO on a desktop machine in 256 MB of RAM, and though it normally runs fine I'd like to save on system resources by disabling WBar, which I don't normally use (I use Fluxbox as my window manager and launch my apps from the Fluxbox menu). The question is, how do I stop WBar from loading when I start X Windows? I can't see any entries for it in my .xinitrc file.

Thanks in advance,

Colonel Panic .

I think "wbarconf" has an on/off option in it. If not, look in ~/.kde/Autostart.

Thanks for your reply. I'm afraid I drew a blank on both counts, though there is a utility called wbarcontrol in the same directory which does switch wbar on and off.

Regards,

Ah yes, I got the name wrong. Good job figuring it out anyways.  :)

No problem, and anyway I wouldn't have found wbarcontrol if you hadn't drawn my attention to wbarconf (which does exist and is in the same directory).
