Login scripts and startup programs for XFCE in F11



Hi everyone,

I have a rather odd problem. Whenever I login one of the applets in my panel fails, and tries to start over and over again. Sometimes I need to logout and log back in again to get it right. Usually it is the xfapplet. I am using the gnome clock-applet with xfapplet, so that also has this behaviour.

Now when I look at xfce4-taskmanager, I see multiple copies of both these running. These are the output from ps,

08:47|jallad bhishma:~>ps -ef|grep xfapplet
jallad    2359     1  0 08:25 ?        00:00:00 /usr/libexec/xfce4/panel-plugins/xfce4-xfapplet-plugin socket_id 159383627 name xfapplet id 12468228860 display_name XfApplet size 30 screen_position 2
jallad    2361     1  0 08:25 ?        00:00:00 /usr/libexec/xfce4/panel-plugins/xfce4-xfapplet-plugin socket_id 125829195 name xfapplet id 12468228860 display_name XfApplet size 30 screen_position 2
jallad    5712  4052  0 08:26 ?        00:00:00 /usr/libexec/xfce4/panel-plugins/xfce4-xfapplet-plugin socket_id 31457355 name xfapplet id 12468228860 display_name XfApplet size 30 screen_position 2

08:47|jallad bhishma:~>ps -ef|grep clock
jallad    2379     1  0 08:25 ?        00:00:00 /usr/libexec/clock-applet --oaf-activate-iid=OAFIID:GNOME_ClockApplet_Factory --oaf-ior-fd=20
jallad    5720     1  0 08:26 ?        00:00:00 /usr/libexec/clock-applet --oaf-activate-iid=OAFIID:GNOME_ClockApplet_Factory --oaf-ior-fd=18

Due to stupidity on my part I had to reinstall F11 a few days back. (my system had become unbootable) Even in my previous install, I had a similar problem but the application was xfce4-power-manager. Every time I used to login, power-manager would start as many as 6-8 times. Since the applications are different I am assuming its _not_ due to some config in my /home.

I have a hunch that this might have something to do with the login scripts for XFCE, which I have been unsuccessful in finding. So what I am asking is, where do I look? And could there be any other possibilities that could cause this? Am I trying to troubleshoot this in the right way?

Thanks for any suggestions.

PS: I am on F11 x86_64
