Bug Description

I've got ubuntu-netbook-remix installed on Kubuntu Jaunty. If I log in into KDE 4.2.0 netbook-launcher and maximus are started automatically.

As you can think netbook-launcher isn't really usefull or even needed in KDE. Maximus even disturbs KDE as it maximized all windows even such as yakuake and glxgears and hides the window titles - I know this is the job maximus has to do, but please not in KDE.

Looks as if maximus-autostart.desktop and netbook-launcher.desktop in /etx/xdg/autostart miss a line like
   OnlyShowIn=GNOME;XFCE;

And the same for cellwriter and devilspie. I've removed both some time ago as they seemed to have the same problem and I didn't know a better solution: bug #298307
