Registered by Alexander Andjelkovic on 2013-08-19

We need to be able to provide a proper start-up editor by default. This is a basic but major feature that is expected in an operating system.

Whiteboard

[kalvi] Absolutely helpful tips. There are some applications that can not be started automatically.

[melodie] Recently someone on the Lubuntu IRC space asked how to stop lxpanel from being started (he uses a dock) and I had no idea how to do that. Adding applications to be started or removed from the start would be nice. If possible, such a start-up should also offer an option so that it is also possible to quit having it when the session starts.

[Baron] +1

[vanyok] I support this initiative. Currently you just go into the textfile to add or remove lines for autostart (also remember to write it correctly!). And the user friendliness is in GUI (sorry, geeks). As we are trying to reach XP migrants and anyway make Lubuntu easy to use, this tool is required.

[amjjawad] are we talking about: "default application for LXsession" ? which is now exist with 13.10 by default?

[kalvi] like "xfce4-session-settings" . It has add (!) and remove functon.

[gilir] lxsession-default-app is design for this. UI design input + UI developpement is welcome to make it more user-friendly.
