Disabling GkrellM autostart.


Where does GkrellM put it's startup at? I've looked in /etc/rd.d and in XFCE's autostart up area and can't find GkrellM. I no longer need it running automatically anymore. I was using it to monitor my processor and hard drive temps. Now I have XFCE's sensors plugin doing that and so I no longer need GkrellM for that anymore.

I'd do this to find out (as root):
Code:
grep -r gkrellm /etc
If you don't need it at all:
Code:
removepkg gkrellm

Unfortunately grep did not find anything in /etc and I couldn't find it anywhere else, so I went ahead and removed the package. I wasn't really wanting to do that as it can be useful for other things. Perhaps, I'll just compile my own from source and install it.

Gkrellm does not have a 'startup' script. You did not explicitly state your window manger/desktop, but I assume it is xfce. If I had to guess there is a startup "something" created in/by your DE that kicks it off. I think KDE will autostart any program that was executing when you exit out. So maybe the same thing happens in xfce.

XFCE normally runs with session management, so whatever was running when you quit will be started the next time you run xfce.

Try looking in Applications Menu -> Settings -> Sessions and Startup -> Session. If you see gkrellm in the list, click on it and then click the "Quit Program" button.

That was one place I didn't think to look. That probably was it too. I'll reinstall GkrellM and make sure it is not there. Thanks.

Edit:

I must have already compiled and installed GKrellM on my computer not realizing that it was already installed as a Slackware package. Since I had uninstalled the Slackware package, I was not expecting GkrellM to come up, but it did. I found out that it was XFCE's saved sessions that was starting it in the first place, so I had it removed from there. Now it isn't comming up anymore.
