My girlfriend logged into her Skype account from my Xubuntu 12.10 netbook, and ever since then Skype starts automatically every time I boot. How do I prevent this from happening?
Things I've tried:
- Removing it from the Settings Manager->Session and Startup->Application Autostart - couldn't find it in the list.
- Checking for a relevant setting in Skype itself - couldn't find anything of the sort. (I remember there was a similar Skype setting somewhere whenever I've used it on Windows. Considering my girlfriend is a Windows user, could it be that this is a setting that's available on the Windows client but not on the Linux one, and somehow got transferred?)
- Using BUM to turn it off - again, couldn't find it in the list.
- Uninstalling Skype with
apt-get remove skype --purgeand hoping that it removes all the settings as well - it didn't.
Save for reinstalling, what else can I try?
While on the same note - how is it possible for Skype to autostart without going through the normal Upstart route?
EDIT: Couple of more things I tried:
- Looking for anything similar in Skype support - I didn't expect to find anything, and I didn't.
- Looking through the
.Skypefolder in my home directory. I did find a couple of files which looked promising (
.Skype/[girlfriend's username]/config.xml), but looking through them didn't yield anything. Plenty of SQLite files though. Could it be that this setting is somewhere within?
