This is a recurring issue with Desktop Drapes, and I'm baffled why that team doesn't include a fix. It has been an open issue for the past 4 years (https://bugs.launchpad.net/drapes/+bug/292051
), and still everybody has to manually find this solution
1. From the Desktop Drapes' preferences, disable the start on login.
2. Go to Startup Applications and confirm it is removed
3. Add a new entry, give it name "Start Desktop Drapes" (or whatever you want) and command:
- Code: Select all
sh -c "sleep 20 && drapes &"
This should start Desktop Drapes with a 20 second delay.
