Hmm, are you still using scim 0.9.7 in unstable?  The new versions
(1.0-pre) can auto load the settings.  Check them out at
(the infomation is a bit outdated, but the repository is correct and
kept updated)

Hmm, I don't do that myself, so I'm not sure.  I've heard about using
~/.xinitrc, but I doubt that's the right place.  KDE has a place (and
UI) to add your own start-up programs, but I don't use KDE.  I'm not
sure if other WM has similar features.

Anyone else use auto start and can shed some light on this?
