Xfce's Quit's "Save session for future logins" default


Hello

Is it possible to change the default in Xfce's Quit's "Save session for future logins"? By default it's ticked and I don't want to save the session so untick it each logoff/shutdown. A minor annoyance but would be nice to change it.

Best

Charles

Hi Charles,

This should work:

Menu >> Setting >> Sessions and Startup

In the General Tab:
untick "Automatically Save Session on Log out"
untick "Prompt on Log Out" might also apply in your case.

Thanks for those, Chris

Tried both. The first saves the session without asking (I guess that removes the annoyance and I could script something to delete the saved session). The second is not an option because it also removes the Shutdown and Restart buttons; having to Shutdown some other way would take longer than unticking "Save session for future logins"!

After upgrading from Xfce 4.4.2 (several individual packages from the ubuntu Hardy repositories) to Xfce 4.6.1 (several individual packages from Jerome Guelfucci's PPA ubuntu Hardy repositories) the Quit applet now remembers the last used setting of "Save session for future logins".

BTW more importantly the upgrade fixed a problem of VirtualBox windows not having the top panel (the one with minimise and maximise buttons etc.) but having unwanted slider bars.

Hi Charles,

I am glad to read that you found a solution.

With Slackware 12.2, XFCE 4.4 always remebers the last entry of whether the user opted to Save te Session or not and keeps it as default for the next session; so I could not help you as I could not replicate the problem.

I confirm that there is a problem with VirtualBox windows sometimes, but by setting up the panels, I managed to get around it.

On Virtualbox I installed Slackware 13 that comes with XFCE 4.6, and it also remebers the last entry of whether the user opted to Save te Session.

Cheers
Chris
