Ubuntu 10.04 autostart problem for awn and drapes fixed


Just upgraded to Ubuntu 10.04 from 9.10 and found that awn can’t autostart.

From syslog, it complaints about command error as new version change a bit. Fix is simply goto ‘System’ -> ‘Preferences’ -> ‘Awn Settings’ and un-check and check the setting for ‘Start Awn automatically’. This will recreate the awn.desktop under ‘~/.config/autostart/’ and do the job.

Drapes also have problem since I used it under 9.10 and it need manual start.

Found out today that the ’drapes.desktop’ file under ‘~/.config/autostart/’ failed to handle by gnome-session as it missed the ‘Type’ attribute. After add the line ‘Type=Application’ after ‘Version=1.0’ and it works now when login next time.

Type=Application <======== add this line
