I think there should be another directory for the user-specific autostart
files, in addition to ~/Desktop/Autostart. This directory should be hidden -
e.g., ~/.xsession.d/Autostart, so it won\'t clutter the listing of the home
directory (and ~/Desktop could be deleted - not everyone uses KDE :-).
Also, I suggest to run files from that new directory in foreground instead of
running in background as ~/Desktop/Autostart/* - this may be useful for some
Another related suggestion: it would be useful to pass the parameter of
/etc/X11/Xsession to autostart files. For example, I want to start bbkeys and
friends only when I select a Blackbox session.
Implemented in 2.4.8-alt1:
+ sourcing ~/.xprofile;
+ executing from ~/.xsession.d/ (instead of ~/Desktop/Autostart/).
The main problem was solved (the \"another suggestion\" part reported
separately as #0001560).
