    Default Many windows at startup (BT4)

    Hi,

    I have installed BT4 on an 320GB USB drive. Im loving it! Its persistent allso (ofc.)
    My problem isnt really a problem but somehow annyoing.
    When i boot up BT4, login as root and startx my desktop is filled with windows: shell, firefox, and 3xfile browser windows. Even tho i close the windows they popup next time i boot. Iv been looking at bootup manager and startup manager but cant find any solution.
    So does any of you guys know where to look or how to close these windows so the wont popup again?

    allso is there any way to make the default keyboard to danish at bootup? I have to change it every time I boot

    Best regards
    Daffy

    How are you rebooting your system? Because if you created a button/script that runs the command "shutdown -r now", your desktop environment won't be able to save the current opened windows and will revert to the last saved session. The proper way to reboot/shutdown is to logout kde first and then issuing reboot or poweroff at the command prompt.
    BUT, if you have that script/button and want to keep it, go to BT Menu > Settings > KDE components > Session Manager and under "On Login" select "Start with an empty session".

    Yes, erase all the other keyboard layouts on the configuration page, your layout will be always default.
