Nemo autostart does not work anymore
Last modified: 2013-06-14 14:03:49 EDT
Since the last update of my system (since some time), nemo does not autostart anymore. I tried removing all configuration files for both nemo and cinnamon, but that did not help.
$ gsettings get org.nemo.desktop show-desktop-icons
Running it by hand with alt-f2 and typing nemo -n works fine.
When I run
gsettings set org.nemo.desktop show-desktop-icons false
the icons disappear
and they return when I run
gsettings set org.nemo.desktop show-desktop-icons true
An "rpm -V" of those packages does not reveal anything.
Any idea how to debug this further?
Remove nemo-open-terminal as it's obsolete.
Do you have a nemo.desktop file in ~/.local/share/applications
Every thing is started from the session files now
To help debug could you post ~/.xsession-errors
I removed the nemo-open-terminal package. Can you add an Obsolete: to a next version of the nemo package?
No nemo.desktop file there.
No ~/.xsession-errors file available. Strange.
This is fun...
I restored the selinux context of $HOME to see whether that caused the issue with the ~/.xsession-errors file. Even when manually creating that file, no errors are logged there.
After a reboot, Nautilus popped up to draw my desktop. So I shut that down with gnome-tweak-tool, rebooted again and now nemo seems to be working fine.
(and yes, I kept the gsettings for both the same before the reboot)
What I did do before rebooting, was removing the nemo and cinnamon settings in ~/.config, ~/.local and clearing ~/.cache and logoff/logon. That did not seem to make any difference.
I think I force a relabel, as everything should be standard from this clean install. Maybe the btrfs crash did kill something.
Relabeling done, now it sometimes starts with the desktop icons and sometimes without. I still get an sealert for /usr/libexec/accounts-daemon. Should not be of influence. Even though it is annoying.
Still nothing in ~/.xsession-errors...
Now the problem seems to be mostly happening at the first logon after boot. Any ideas?
By adding draw icons to nautilus you are autostarting it, this is a nautilus issue not nemo.
nautilus is intruding on a cinnamon session.
