desktop-printing's autostart .desktop file fails to start under a KDE session
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:09 EST
Description of problem:
The desktop-printing applet fails to open when starting a KDE session. As far
as I know, this will be changed via a patch, allowing KDE to look in
$XDG_CONFIG_DIRS/autostart (/etc/xdg/autostart). I've made some minor changes
to redhat-print-applet.desktop to allow it to start successfully under a KDE
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start a KDE session
Note that the foo.desktop files placed in /etc/xdg/autostart aren't seen when
KDE starts and the apps they reference are not started. Moving them to a
location where they are seen by a KDE session results in undesirable behavior.
The desktop files in the system-wide autostart directory should start without
The attached patch adds:
StartupNotify allows the applet to start under a KDE session without
displaying KDE's app start up notification icon.
X-KDE-autostart-after=panel allows the applet to start after KDE's panel
(kicker), preventing a race between the panel and the applet.

Patch allowing desktop-printing's autostart file to start as expected under a KDE session
Thanks. Fixed in system-config-printer (which now contains that applet) for devel.
