I'm running Ubuntu 12.10 desktop 64-bit. I've installed the latest version of XBMC (Eden). Everything seems to be working great.
The only small issue I'm running into is that I can't figure out how to make XBMC launch automatically on boot/restart. In the 'Startup Applications Preferences' dialog in Ubuntu I have added a new launcher with the command
and ticked the checkbox next to it. When I restart though XBMC doesn't launch. I know this is the correct path because I ran
in the Terminal to confirm it.
Am I doing something really stupid here? How come XBMC won't launch automatically? It works fine if I click its icon in the dock.
