Description of problem:
The user-dirs-update-gtk.desktop 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 user-dirs-update-gtk.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

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.
