Not sure what launcher does, but why not just create a few shell scripts and put them in /home/$USER/kde3.5/Autostart/ ?

here's what I use and it works for all the stuff I autostart.. pidgin, ktorrent, kmix, thunderbird

Code: Select all
touch /home/YourUser/.kde/Autostart/pidgin.sh
chmod +x /home/YourUser/.kde/Autostart/pidgin.sh

cat > /home/YourUser/.kde/Autostart/pidgin.sh << EOF
#!/bin/sh
/usr/bin/pidgin
EOF

I'm not quite sure what launcher is, having never used ubuntu, but I take it you want to run several processes in order, say equo update, equo install foo, equo database gentoosync, cat /home/war_and_peace? If so, just string them together on the command line with && in-between each.
