[Solved] make programs re start after shut down or reboot

Post by l-d »

Hi!
There is a way that after I restart the computer, the "program windows" that where active at moment of shutdown, to be reopened at restart with the same state they have before resart? (eg: Open Office to be reopened with exact the same document that was opened at the moment of shutdown)

i've read the following forum topic, but it do not work for me:
viewtopic.php?f=90&t=188706&p=977487&hi ... own+reboot

Also, I've set the following two options thru

org.cinnamon.SessionManager auto-save-session false
org.gnome.SessionManager auto-save-session = false


My system is inux Mint 19.2 Tina :
Kernel: 4.15.0-72-generic x86_64 bits: 64 compiler: gcc v: 7.4.0
Desktop: Cinnamon 4.2.4 dm: LightDM Distro: Linux Mint 19.2 Tina
base: Ubuntu 18.04 bionic

PS: I mention that also that in LM 19.2 Tina there is no option called "Automatically remember running applications when logging out", as say in the previous post I mention above: see the first picture attached which is mine, and the second which is from the topic mentioned above which mention the existence of this missing option.

Meantime I believe I'he found the answer: Hibernate the system.

Suspend should work too.
