I have some files (soft-links really) in my ~/.config/autostart folder that I want executed when I login. They were executed just fine in previous versions of Ubuntu but not so with 9.10. Any idea what is going on here?


[Desktop Entry]
Type=Application
Name=XBindKeys
Exec=xbindkeys
Icon=system-run
Comment=
Name[en_US]=XBindKeys
Comment[en_US]=
X-GNOME-Autostart-enabled=true


The files are picked up properly by System->Preferences->Startup Applications and appear to be properly formatted, they just do not seem to be executed. I have no problems executing the commands in a terminal.

Very mysterious.

I got the same problem. Ubuntu 9.10. The problem occurred right after I did a Nvidia kernel upgrade. I don't believe it is a permissions setting.

Same here.
file is there with proper content, but doesn't start after loging.
