I have some script that should start when user logs in. I've created .desktop file and put it into /etc/xdg/autostart. It works on two pretty old PCs with Ubuntu with a long life (10.xx -> 11.10 -> 12.04 at the moment), and doesn't work on freshly installed Ubuntu 12.04.
.desktop file works correctly - it starts what I want when I double click it.
Here it is:
[Desktop Entry] Version=1.0 Type=Application Exec=/usr/bin/proxyauth.sh Icon=utilities-terminal StartupNotify=false Terminal=true NoDisplay=false Name=Proxy Authentication Comment=Use the command line
Is there any way I can debug or track what happens on login? Thanks!
