If you wish to autostart an application on log in, for example, gnome-settings-daemon, there are two ways this can be accomplished.
The first way is simply logging out of CDE with the application running. CDE will remember and restart it when you log in again.
The second method is to create a sessionetc file. This will give you more fine grained control of of autostarted applications.
Using your text editor of choice, create a file called "sessionetc" in $HOME/.dt/sessions
Next add the applications you want started in the order which they should starts, for example:
The "&" is important or CDE will freeze when you log in again.
Make this file executable, chmod +x sessionetc then log out and in again. Your application will automatically be started!
