Re: lubuntu missing desktop after upgrade to 12.10
Awfully close to necro-threading, but not quite. Confirming that this fixes the problem. I had defined an autostart file before updating to 12.10 in ~/.config/lxsession/Lubuntu in order to autostart Conky. It seems that 12.10 changed things so that autostart apps are now invoked through .desktop entries in ~/.config/autostart

Thanks to @maxpro4u for simple and elegant solution. Will try to mark thread "solved". Can't seem to find this option in new thread tools.
