How many X11 autostart scripts are there??


I've got a bit of a problem... two apps gaim and amarok in particular are being launched whenever I start X... ~/Desktop/Autostart/ is empty. I see an initialization message from xfce "Starting gaim..." and "Starting amarokapp..." and both of them appear before "Starting Autostart..."

"ps -ef|grep gaim/amarok" yields the following lines, respectively:

Code:
user   5400     1  1 16:08 tty1     00:00:00 gaim --session 117f000001000116551687100000026330000
user   5410     1  0 16:08 tty1     00:00:02 amarokapp -session 117f000001000116535957300000026330001_1165518982_480600
that -session ........ argument says absolutely nothing to me but I have a feeling it should be a dead giveaway. no?

Thanks in advance for any info!

Edit: Forgot to mention, I also checked a bunch of xinit and such config scripts (can't remember exact ones at this point) and nothing looked suspicious... and I don't recall messing with any of them anyway. O and also tried disabling "Launch KDE Services" to no avail.

Hi,

Check your ~/.config directory and see if anything suspicious (or delete everything is another -maybe non-peaceful way)
Code:
grep -r gaim /etc/*
grep -r gaim /opt/*
may helpful.

Happy Penguins!!

Thanks for the post. Great idea with the grep (i should really make friends with that command!)
Nothing turned up though except some documentation files, unfortunately.

It is somewhere in the user settings since it only happens for 1 user

"grep -r gaim /home/useraccount/*"

Turned up nothing though... double checked Autostart, empty, it's good that it's only 1 user because i was contemplating on doing a quick reinstall (5th time in the last 2 weeks lol)

Hi,

check shell startup scripts, (they are different across sytem to system, read man file)

Happy Penguins!

Hi,

Yes, one step done.

If bash, read 'man bash'. If tcsh, read 'man tcsh'. If other shell read appropriate manual. Look for startup.

Happy Penguins!!
