Openbox runs lots of stuff (not set on autostart) at startup after the last upgrade
Openbox 3.5.0, from Debian testing.
I think these stuff are from Gnome environment, which I have I guess, but I never use it (the DE, not the stuff, which I use sometimes, I only don't want them starting at the startup).
"Autostart" had an environment variable of "DE=KDE" or something like that though, so I'm not sure, I know only that all the stuff that started or most of it is GTK. I removed it and it did not have ant effect though.
The new "environment" config file is the default, just "blank"/commented.
Anyone knows what's going on?
I thought I had found the answer, there was a ~/.config/autostart folder, with .desktop files on it, I've removed the folder, but the apps are still being run by something.
OK, I think now I've found it, sort of. There is a similar folder on /etc/xdg/autostart, which sets autostart apps for all DEs. Apparently I have to either delete the entire folder or set only the things I want to always autostart in any time, any DE. I wish one could just have something like "GLOBALAUTOSTART=0/false/off" set on my on home folder...
edit: I've faced the same trouble and I knew I had made a topic on it once, I didn't remember if I had solved it through the topic the first time, but anyway, samuvuo's solution works, thanks!
A quick trick if you do not want anything there but don't want to delete the files either:
for i in *.desktop ; do echo "Hidden=true" >> $i ; done
