1. To make an application start after login you need to link the command to the directory ~/.kde/Autostart/

2. You need to look at your display manager and configure your app as an xclient, I dont have the full details but you can look at how openkiosk is implemented and get the tips from there. http://openkiosk.sourceforge.net/index.html
