I use Ubuntu/Kubuntu 12.10 with KDE 4.10 and Unity, switching beetween the two depending on what I intend to do.

My question is:

How can I make sure that

  • the package nautilus-dropbox is only started when I login into Unity
  • and when logging in into KDE only kfilebox is started?

Sessions are your friends.

Basically add those apps to your sessions (collections of app that each desktop env, will start after you login).
