What precise command do I have to write in what startup file,
so that this does the same thing on FreeBSD/KDE3.5 ?

I have the following line in my ~/.xinitrc:

        xbiff -geometry 50x50+0+998 &
This is for the lower left corner of a 1400x1050 21" CRT.
If you think you need further options, consult "man xbiff". :-)

From a terminal window command line xbiff -geometry 50x50-5+5 & puts
it in my upper right corner, but if I put that in my .xinitrc
(and chmod 755 ~/.xinitrc) nothing happens. Are you using kdm window
manager or xdm ? (I have in my /etc/ttys:
ttyv8 "/usr/local/bin/kdm -nodeamon" xterm on secure)

Would .xinitrc not be processed by kdm window manager?

Probably not.
~/.xinitrc is only run when you use startx and ~/.xsession is used
when you run the display manager xdm(1).
I believe kdm also uses xsession.

no xbiff icon neither when put in an .xsession file
Also nothing to see about this xbiff in the file
