I'm looking for help, because i had to install Ubuntu one more time and I was always using Guake Terminal. In fact I don't know how, but it was always starting when the desktop appeared and I only clicked F12 and did everything I had to. But now it doesn't start automatically. I was looking for an answer but nothing worked. Has anybody ideas how to solve it ? It would be really nice to use it as earlier ;)
have you tried adding it to the startup applications (search "startup applications")
If you have, try adding a .desktop file to /etc/xdg/autostart/
You can do this with the following command
This is just an example, I don't know what the guake .desktop file is named but you can easily find out by having a look in the map: /usr/share/applications/
If by chance that doesn't work as well then there is one other solution you could try adding the following command to the startup applications
if it doesn't work try varying the sleep time because it depends on your system's speed but usually 10 seconds will work just fine
I hope this helps
The Startup Application Preferences window opens. Then, click in Add, give a Name for the Application in the Name field ("Guake" it's enough), and then type “guake” without quotes in the command field and click Add. Then close the Startup Application Preferences window and restat the machine, now Guake should start automatically on login.
This helps for me:
In Guake's preferences just uncheck Enable notifications on startup, and add the full path (e.g. `/usr/bin/guake) to startup applications.
