Plank autostart [updated & resolved]

Hello Folks,

I moved

 home/user/share/applications/plank/plank.desktop

  into 

 /etc/xdg/autostart

... and it did not do what I had planned neutral

Re: Plank autostart [updated & resolved]

Try

/home/user/.config/autostart/

Alternatively it may need to go in the ~/.trinity autostart folder depending on how much you have left in place - assuming you're not trying to run plank with TDE or Plasma

Make sure it is executable.

Re: Plank autostart [updated & resolved]

I don't have a 

/home/user/.config/autostart/

However, I did put the application in

home/user/trinity/autostart/

now on reboot I get a message "The desktop entry file /home/user/.trinity/autostart/plank has no type=entry".

I checked the file and it is checked as 'executable' and the filetype is set as 'application'. <--- don't know if that is what is was referring to...

Re: Plank autostart [updated & resolved]

For now I have Plank on the panel and click it manually after boot.
Seems to keep all that was added to it and settings...

Thanks for the suggestions bin

Re: Plank autostart [updated & resolved]

I installed 'kcontrol autostart trinity' from synaptic and was easily able to get 'plank' to autostart perfectly.

note: I had tried 'kooldock. also but prefer the feel and effect response of Plank.
