I forgot to put that in my last posting: to prevent a program in /etc/xdg/lxsession/Mint/autostart from starting all you need to do is to put # as the fi...

Hi, dln9: I'm not sure what you mean, but if you are wondering how to start an application automatically when starting the LXDE gui then you should make an entry in the file: ~/.config/openbox/autostart.sh For example, I start nitrogen (for my desktop wallpaper) using the following line in that file...
