I don't use things like Ubuntu One. How do I disable it from Startup Applications? I believe it is hidden by default along with some other apps.
You have to edit
/etc/xdg/autostart/ and either:
- remove the
- or make those same lines comments by adding
#in front of them;
- or replace
falsein those same lines.
The alternate solution can be easily done in three steps:
- Summon the terminal with Ctrl + Alt + T.
Type the two following commands:
cd /etc/xdg/autostart/ sudo sed --in-place 's/NoDisplay=true/NoDisplay=false/g' *.desktop
After changing anything you want, you can go back to the previous state by typing this into the terminal:
sudo sed --in-place 's/NoDisplay=false/NoDisplay=true/g' *.desktop
This has been tested in 12.04, 12.10 and 13.04.
