I installed KAlarm (A KDE software) in my Ubuntu 11.10 and checked off "Start at Login", but it doesn't.

How can I make this work?

Did you installed it in Ubuntu or Kubuntu? or Do you have KDE desktop installed? – Anwar Shah Jul 22 '12 at 15:25

This documentation about Kalarm may help you too, apparently Kalarm has another script for starting on login.
