One way is to create a symlink to wbar in ~/.kde/Autostart
You can also create an executable script in same folder, something like:
Code: [Select]
#! /bin/bash
wbar &

Thanks that sent me in the right direction.. actually had to copy the shell script from /usr/bin to /home/<usr name>/.kde/Autostart.. that did the trick.

Thanks again.. I'm getting forgetful in my old age :)
I have not worked with kde in quite some time and had forgotten how to do that.
Cheers!
