I have a machine running Ubuntu 16.04 Desktop (running Unity). I was playing around with different desktop environments for
xrdp, so I installed
sudo apt install xfce4) and
sudo apt install mate-core mate-desktop-environment mate-notification-daemon).
However, I found that when using these desktop environments, none of the scripts in
/etc/profile.d were being run for certain users (specifically mine, which was where I was running the experiments). I removed
mate to hopefully restore the previous behavior, but to no avail.
Is there anywhere in Ubuntu 16 startup that will show me when/where the
/etc/profile.d scripts are run? How would installing a different desktop effect this?
Any help would greatly be appreciated.
