Re: HOWTO: Automating Gnome with Devil's Pie
Hello, for some time I have been noticing a freeze down (Ubuntu just stopped coming up, the programs that are listed in system>preferences>sessions>startup programs would not start) during startup just after that update manager (priority 50 I believe) seemed to have been lounched. Lounching of any application (for example gnome-terminal that I can start with ALT+F3) would solve this and the system would start up after that without any further problem.
Recently I realized that devilspie has a priority 51 so I deleted its entry from startup programs and suddenly I enountered nomore freezedowns. Has anyone come across something similar? I saw people reporting starting devilspie upon startup without any problems here in the forum.
I am using version 0.16, Ubuntu breezy.
