Question Permission issue when adding a program to AutoStart, video inside


What is causing this permission error? Best I can tell, I have read/write access to the directory in question. Antergos and OpenSUSE are giving me the same, exact error but no error in Mint.

Also, despite the error, the program still starts at boot with no problem.

Open a terminal and issue
Code:
find .local ! -user gene -type f
and show us the output.

"gene" doesn't own the file shown at the end of the video.

I copy/pasted the txt in there, hit enter and nothing:

[gene@antergos ~]$ find .local ! -user gene -type f
[gene@antergos ~]$

I right clicked on that file (even folder.... /home/gene/Downloads/nzbget/) and my user account 'gene', is shown as the owner with read/write permission.

Something's wrong in Kansas...
"Could not save properties. You do not have access to /home/gene/.local/share/applications/esktop"

Must be a "SuSE 'thing'"

Sorry, I don't know.

What's really bizarre is I get the exact. same. error. in Antergos and OpenSUSE but not Mint. Despite the error, Nzbget starts as a daemon in the background and I can access it perfectly fine after a reboot so it's auto-starting but that permission error is just.....weird. There is no 'esktop' folder. I realize that it probably means 'Desktop' but what the heck?!

I think I'll try OpenSUSE Leap but switch my desktop to something other than Plasma and see if the error follows.
