Ubuntu :: Startup Applications Failed To Start

Feb 28, 2010

I have a problem in my Ubuntu box. The applications defined in "Startup applications" fail to start. On another user's account, everything works fine. I think that's some configuration problem. Where are the data of of the startup applications stored? (i suppose it's .xx file that I could just delete to restore defaults)

Software :: Fedora 15 - Program That Manages Startup Applications ?

Jul 24, 2011

I just installed fedora 15 and this version seems to be missing a lot of the programs in the old version of fedora 14 I had. I just need to know what that program that manages startup applications is called. I used to use it in fedora 14 for a keyboard fix(a key wasn't assigned to the right symbols). I just need to run a xmodmap script to fix it but I don't know how to make it run everytime I start the system.

Ubuntu :: Restore Minimized Applications With Launchers?

Jul 17, 2010

i'd like to be able to restore minimized applications by clicking on their launchers like you can do when you have awn or dockey installed. but i'd rather not install awn or dockey since this is the only feature i want from them that the gnome panel doesn't already provide.

i found this thread:


which is from 2007. apparently a small application, "launcher-restore", was written to give program launchers the functionality i'm talking about--but that program is gone now--the attached deb file doesn't work at all.

so is there some other program that will do this now, a newer version of launcher-restore, or some even simpler way of setting things up the way i want them?

Ubuntu :: Open Program As Minimized

Jul 9, 2011

I know it sounds a bit strange, but is there something that I can add to a start up command to make the program that is starting up be minimized. I know it sounds strange, but I want to have Evolution Mail open at start up, but be minimized. I know the command to open Evolution Mail is "evolution --component=mail" but how would I make the window starts out being minimized in the Launcher.

Ubuntu :: Force A Startup Application To Open In A Minimized State?

Jan 30, 2011

In my case I have TeamViewer 6 (remote desktop application) opening as one of my Startup applications. I only really need it to run in the background, so I don't need it in my face after logging in.

What I'm looking for is a command line option for opening an application in a minimized state. Is this possible? Or should I start looking into a script to find the window and minimize it?

OpenSUSE :: Disappearing Applications From - (windows Open And Minimized) Panel

Jul 29, 2010

I am running a week old 11.3 install with KDE (no desktop effects), compiz, nvidia. Last night I was working away. I had Thundertbird, Firefox, and VMWare Workstation open. Maybe something else, but I don't remember.

I was typing away. Maybe I hit something on the keyboard, but maybe not. All apps just disappeared, meaning that they're windows were not open and were not minimized to the panel. I could open *new* windows, and I fire up a terminal and ran top, which showed that they were all running, just not visible. Obviously, this is a Bad Thing.

Ubuntu :: Start Tomboy Minimized To Gnome Panel?

Jun 24, 2010

I'd like to start Tomboy (the sticky-note application) at start-up but have it minimized to the Gnome panel. I tried adding tomboy to System -> Preferences -> Startup Applications, but then Tomboy opens up in full-screen mode. Then I tried adding tomboy-panel instead, but that doesn't seem to do anything at all. What's the trick I'm missing?

Software :: Start Kontact Minimized In Kde 4 When Logging In?

Dec 16, 2008

Kontact is automatically started when I log in to kde 4 and I would like to figure out how to make it immediately minimize to a tray icon. When I used kde 3.5 I had a script in .kde/autostart that ran a dcop call to close kontact, which effectively minimized it to a tray icon. I assume that I should be able to do the same now with dbus and a script using dbus-send. The problem is that I haven't been able to figure out the exact dbus call that I would need. Has anyone else tried to accomplish the same thing? I've googled but all the results I've found are for kde 3. I'm using kde 4.1.3 and kontact 1.3.

Software :: Samba Refuses To Start On Startup - But Will Start Manually

Apr 14, 2009

I just moved my / from sda1 to an ide drive, hde1. i dont see how this could have caused any of these issues, but it did.

First my network card failed to start. i added a line in my rc.local file (where i put all of my additional programs, etc i want to start):/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1

The above now starts my network card with my static ip configured. dhcpcd also worked but i wanted this static.

Now samba will not start. i have the following line in my rc.local: /etc/rc.d/init.d/samba start

This used to work just fine. at first i thought that samba may be trying to start before my network card gets an ip, but the line is *after* the network startup line. just to make sure, i made an additional script called startsamba which contained a sleep 60 followed by samba start, to delay the startup of samba even further.

The message samba reports is very vague, something like failed - core dumped. most of the core dump log is garbage characters, but here is the beginning which seems like it might contain some info:


ERROR: Can't log to stdout (-S) unless daemon is in foreground (-F) or interactive (-i) after the system starts, i can drop to a console and type "/etc/rc.d/init.d/samba start" and the service starts just fine. i've also tried starting samba manually with "smbd -d" which also produces the core dump when started from rc.local, but not when started from a console after startup.

But when I connect remotely via RDP it runs this script too... and that isn't desirable. Is there a way I can prevent the script from running when I login through RDP?

Ubuntu :: Startup Applications Appear In Duplicate?

May 16, 2010

I tried to put a terminal in the desktop using more or less the procedure described in this article:


It worked fine, but then I installed avant-windows-navigator and I think it created some conflicts with compiz and other applications.Both the desktop terminal and Skype started to appear in duplicate when I logged in. So I went to the startup applications menu and disabled them both. When I logged back in they both appear only once, but the terminal is in the wrong spot in the desktop.So there are probably some startup registers somewhere that are causing this.i've tried reinstalling compiz and I uninstall AWN and it didn't work.

Ubuntu :: Where Do 'Startup Applications' Get Stored?

Nov 21, 2010

I've just moved to Ubuntu and using Linux on the desktop in general. I use RHEL on a daily basis for work so don't really have much experience with window managers etc but like to understand how I'm doing what I'm doing. In that regard, I've configured a couple of scripts to be run when I login using 'System -> Preferences -> Startup Applications' but what I want to know is where do these settings actually get stored within the file system?

Ubuntu :: 50 Seconds Lag With Startup Applications

Feb 26, 2011

I'm having a hard time with my xfce netbook. Yesterday i was adding Tomboy note to my startup applications and i don't know why but since that i'm having a 50 seconds delay between the time i see my wallpaper and icons and the time my startup applications start to load. In this delay my CPU is stable and don't work at all.

Xfce is on my girlfriend netbook too and it seems that we have the same configurations when i look in "session and startup".

Ubuntu :: Where Are Startup Applications Stored

Sep 1, 2011

I need to be able to launch a GUI application for all users after they login. I know I can go to Startup Applications and add a launcher, but I don't want to have to login as every user and do that. Is there a file I can edit from the command line with elevated privledges? Something I could script, like appending to an XML file or something?

Ubuntu :: Startup Applications List Locked?

Feb 24, 2010

About a month ago, I had something go very wrong in my Karmic and my account (with an encrypted home dir) was essentially inaccessible. But I was eventually able to create a new account, and retrieve all my data, but now, for some reason, I cannot edit the 'Startup Applications'.

I open its window and make any changes (which the window seems to accept), but then when I hit close, and restart it, it has been reset to everything I had set from my other account. Which makes little sense.

After that problem, I did have some trouble with permissions of certain files, and am afraid that I inadvertently gave up permissions on my startup applications, but can't imagine what I'd have to do to fix it.some guidance?

Ubuntu :: How To Delay Personal Applications On Startup

Jul 28, 2010

I use to auto start Firefox and Thunderbird. I would like to add others but using a delay. For instance, Firefox starts with 10 seconds of delay, Thunderbird with 30 second an so on. I tried to make a script using "sleep" command, but I am not expert and nothing worked. So, do you know if already exist an application that does this if not, are you able to show me how to create the script?

Ubuntu :: Startup Applications Not Loading On 9.10 Boot

Sep 3, 2010

Since several months ago (I think when I upgraded to Karmic), whatever program I add to session startup won't load on boot, and no icon appears at the top-right of the screen, only clock and shutdown button (no audio etc.). [URL] didn't help, nor did searching in forums and bugs. I've enabled debug to /etc/gdm/custom.conf, and this is my .xsession-errors first part:

Unable to create /home/name/.dbus/session-bus
(gnome-settings-daemon:1957): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_propagate_error: assertion `src != NULL' failed
(gnome-settings-daemon:1957): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_propagate_error: assertion `src != NULL' failed
Avviso del window manager: Lettura del file della sessione /home/name/.config/metacity/sessions/10202b25c953eedbf3128344035910216700000019440001.ms non riuscita: Apertura del file "/home/name/.config/metacity/sessions/10202b25c953eedbf3128344035910216700000019440001.ms" non riuscita: Nessun file o directory
Unable to find a synaptics device .....

I removed .recently-used.xbel to avoid recently opened files to be logged, so this explains part of these errors. I had disabled gnome-screensaver but now I would need it to automate screen lock and looks like dbus may be the problem. My .dbus directory is empty.
