Question GNOME -- startup (SOLVED!!)


Where is the startup programs list file for Gnome?
You know, the place that gnome lists the programs it will start when you login.

The reason I'm asking is that there is this program (krandrtray) that starts up (3 times) everytime I login as a certain user.

Thank you in advance.

-----EDIT------

I actually just solved this...well, that's that!

The application is called 'gnome-session-properties'...
Then again, that might not solve your problem.

Sigh...nope. I actually tried that a long time ago. There's nothing listed in the startup list, yet it starts krandrtray three times, and now it's openning a /home/myname window too.

I figured it out.

There is a hidden file in the /home/whoever directory for Gnome that handles startup tasks. In it is a list of commands, id's, etc. all marked with an entry number. For some reason, krandrtray was listed in three entrys (1 2 and 3) which caused the system to start it three times every time Gnome started up.
So, I just deleted those entries with Kwrite, and it was fixed.

Weird, huh?
