Description Matthew Cline 2021-05-02 07:23:02 UTC
After upgrading from Fedora 33 to Fedora 44,  KDE no longer runs the scripts in  $HOME/.config/autostart-scripts on login. System Settings > Startup and Shutdown > Autostart shows lists all of my startup scripts, so the problem isn't KDE being unable to find them.  However, $HOME/.config/plasma-workspace/env scripts are still sourced at login and $HOME/.config/plasma-workspace/shutdown scripts still run at logout.

I'm running KDE under X11 instead of Wayland, if that makes a difference.

F34 plasma is configured to use systemd user sessions, this is likely a systemd-xdg-autostart-generator issue.

I have the same problem, What do you mean by "systemd-xdg-autostart-generator issue" ?

Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2021-05-04 15:56:39 UTC
It's a systemd bug, not a plasma one, references include:

Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2021-05-04 16:07:20 UTC
Systemd maintainers, the aforementioned issue (and subsquent) PR, is that something that could be included in fedora's systemd packaging?

It's affecting user-configured autostart items in plasma.
