Synaptic autostarts at user profile login

Postby Square » Fri Oct 10, 2008 8:07 am

I think it's a remnant from a failed envy-ng instance but everytime this one user (admin) logs in synaptic starts and throws up a dialog about not being in root. The status bar at the bottom of the app doesn't list any pending or broken installs.

What xfdesktop or xfce4 file do I edit to try and find the startup call? I've disabled everything on the Autostarts program; even the power manager to no effect.

Other user (poweruser) starts her session no problem.

Thanks in advance,
-Triangle

I'm having some problems with my xfce in Virtualbox now (can't get a decent resolution) so I'll have to postpone a possible answer

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

Sorry for the wait.
This is an easy fix and has nothing to do with the Autostart apps.
Just delete the folder ~/.cache/sessions
Logout and then back in.
I don't use save my sessions for future logins, so I never have this problem.

I had the opposite problem. Every Ubuntu build I've tried from Edgy up never worked with my ATI Radeon card easily. virtualbox emulates a videocard so Mint ran perfectly fine out of the box for me. If virtualbox aims for generic vesa, maybe it's the monitor detection?

Thanks. I'll give that a try tonight. If I don't post in this topic again than it worked.
