Hi, i've got a little doubt about the process kdeinit. Everytime i check the processes currently running, there are several instances (most of the time there are 5) of this process running, and i want to know why.

Are these instances related to the multiple desktops? If that's the case, how can i choose to have just one desktop running (because i always use only one)?

Thanks in advance

not sure why, but this is perfectly normal. maybe its a redundancy feature - if one instance crashes, theres another 4 waiting to take over and/or recreate that instance - thus total redundancy.

Hum, i don't know. I find it great to have redundancy, but 5 instances look like too much redundancy for me. I guess there's a bigger chance that there's something to do with multiple desktops. There are 4 desktops enabled by default, so maybe there could be one instance of kdeinit for each of the 4 and the fifth could be the redundant one.

I don't know, that might have nothing to do with the real thing, but seems plausible for me. But thanks for the attention anyway. It's not that it's a big deal, it's just a curiosity of mine, and a little will to reduce the used resources.

I found out. I looked into Kde documentation at kde.org and found that all processes started by kde(like the ones placed on the toolbar, for example) appear as kdeinit when you check the processes with ps -e, which is what i was doing.

With ps aux, the processes appear fully described, and then i could see that they were all different processes.  In the end, it had nothing to do with what i originally thought, but it was nice to get to know it better.

Well, a have a lot more than five of them (at the moment 15) and as I found out, it has something to do with kde daemon and other daemons running on background of KDE. I think it is watching over them and they as well scan the keyboard shortcuts and so.  By the way, you can start apps using kdeinit and maybe there will be some way of specifying something to them (like on witch desktop thay appear or so). And, if I start some app from panel, there launches kdeinit and the app as well - I have them in the list both.
