I have "automatically remember running applications when logging out" enabled in "Startup Application Preferences". However, some programs don't work with this setting: namely Chromium TweetDeck and Geany; none of these programs are restored whenever I restart the machine. Other programs such as Firefox, Gedit, Terminal are able to be restored automatically on restart.

Is there any way I can have ALL of these programs restored appropriately on startup? or at least Chromium?

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

The only suggestion I can make is you just add start up entries for each of them (in system, prefs, start up applications) and file a bug.

This means they will always load up on login but that sounds desirable.

Yup, I have the same issue. Neither Twhirl nor Thunderbird starts when I log in. The only solution I've been able to come up with is to start them manually (or add them as start up entries) – Amanda Apr 28 '11 at 12:03
