Whoops! That's wrong. The stuff in ~/.config/autostart does work. I guess I'm getting confused.   :-[  ???

I understand... it can be confusing.

About lxsession-edit : I could as well remove it. I think you are right about "it doesn't work", therefore it is of no use.

Hi again,

Which one is it that you have tried ? bento2 mini 3 or bento2 mini 4 ?


The problem with the non-starting programs lies with the desktop files in /etc/xdg/autostart. Here are the ones not working, along with the line in each desktop file that needs to be changed.

Desktop file                                                   Change needed
at-spi-dbus-bus.desktop                                  #OnlyShowIn=GNOME;Unity;
gnome-keyring-gpg.desktop                            #OnlyShowIn=GNOME;Unity;
gnome-keyring-pkcs11.desktop                        #OnlyShowIn=GNOME;Unity;
gnome-keyring-secrets.desktop                        #OnlyShowIn=GNOME;Unity;
gnome-keyring-ssh.desktop                             #OnlyShowIn=GNOME;Unity;
gsettings-data-convert.desktop                        #OnlyShowIn=GNOME;Unity;
polkit-gnome-authentication-agent-1.desktop    #OnlyShowIn=GNOME;XFCE;Unity;
user-dirs-update-gtk.desktop                            #OnlyShowIn=GNOME;LXDE;Unity;

The (Change needed) lines are currently uncommented. They will not autostart in an Openbox desktop unless they are commented.

These are working.

nm-applet.desktop           NotShowIn=KDE;
update-notifier.desktop     NotShowIn=KDE;

I got the notification daemon working by changing the desktop name. It was:

notification-daemon.desktop  OnlyShowIn=LXDE;OPENBOX;GNOME;

It should be:
OnlyShowIn=LXDE;openbox;GNOME;

I have been told that "OnlyShowIn" is an old method whereas "NotShowIn" (unless it is reverse side... I'll have to search or to remember) would be more recent, which explains that in many cases it has not been changed.

Citer
I don't know what packages will overwrite the desktop files in /etc/xdg/autostart.

for a given file you can type:
dpkg -S /path/to/file
a bunch of filenames will come out of this command, one will be the name of the package containing the file. There is probably another cleaner command, I would have to seek for it.

Citer
I discovered this when I installed clipit. Normally after installing and rebooting, a security message will popup on first run and ask if you want to run it. After answering yes, it will start. It didn't popup the message or start. I looked at the desktop file in /etc/xdg/autostart and it had the line:

OnlyShowIn=GNOME;XFCE;LXDE;

What a load of crap. It's supposed to be desktop-agnostic. So I commented the line and rebooted. It still wouldn't start. I ended up manually adding it to the ~/.config/openbox/autostart script. Here's what's autostarting now, including the notification-daemon I got working.

If you copy the file to ~/.config/autostart and remove simply the "OnlyShowin=..." line, and also remove any eventual additional line related to Gnome from the file, doesn't that work ?

Citer

Nice!

Citer
What should be started that isn't? If gsettings-data-convert daemon isn't running, will (System Tools > dconf Editor, part of dconf-tools package) work?

No idea. For which purpose do you mean?


Citer
After reading your post here, I followed the link. After reading the suggestions, I installed the jobs-admin package. If you try to make any changes, the app will crash every time. Doesn't matter if you start it from the menu or start it from a terminal as sudo. The error is:
darrel@BentoMini:~$ sudo jobs-admin
[sudo] password for darrel:
No module named pkit
Traceback (most recent call last):

dbus.exceptions.DBusException: org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1.Error.Failed: Error getting subject: Error parsing unix-process subject: Value for key `start-time' found but is of type i and type t was expected
darrel@BentoMini:~$

I tried to modify the behavior of sshd : no sshd available in that one gui. I would like to be able to start or stop some services which are default started during boot, such as the programs I have removed to make it lighter : removed update-notifier for instance. I would like to have some of them installed but not running by default.

The services are provided by upstart for some of them, and by the older init system with the scripts in /etc/init.d : and there is no gui available to deal with them all. Else here jobs-admin didn't crash after I installed it to the vbox bento2 version 4, but I just couldn't do anythying with it when I tried to use it.

Citer
By all other accounts, the program should work.

What does it mean ?  ???

BTW, here is the page with some bugs reported regarding jobs-admin:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/jobsadmin

does any of them look like what you have observed ?

Thanks for your feedback.

Geez, I really was wound up tight, wasn't I? Crikey! Had a bad hair day.

Hi,
Just a tip : sudo should not be used to start a gui app because there is an old non solved bug in it... unless something new was done during the last years which I am not aware of. Just use "gksu" instead.
gksu or gksudo? What if it's Tuesday and it's raining? ???

About the programs started or not from /home/user/.config/autostart : the xdg-autostart program, provided by obsession : http://code.google.com/p/mimarchlinux/downloads/detail?name=obsession-20130101.tar.bz2 is meant to start whatever program for which you have placed a file in /home/user/.config/autostart : have you find some which are backed up there? (looking like "file.destkop-backup"?)
Yeah, I noticed the etc-xdgautostart line in ~/.config/openbox/autostart. I thought it must be an Ubuntu program.

obsession is installed in bento2 (see in /usr/local/bin and /usr/local/share/locale), and xdg-autstart is in the ~/.config/openbox/autostart file. is used to start applications for which desktop files are put into ~/.config/autostart : but, with trials and errors I have seen that for volumeicon it is a mess, for tint2 it is a mess, and for several it is a mess.
The clipit.desktop file ended up there, too, as well as in /etc/xdg/autostart. Still had to manually add it to ~/.config/openbox/autostart.

I suggest that the desktop files where the categories are commented should be copied to ~/.config/autostart so that they will not be rewritten if the program is updated.
Seems like I've been here before and deja vu just didn't kick in until now. I'm starting to reconnect the dots.

About the files for pcmanfm... didn't know that. I always have files with permissions 644 and not 664.
Yep. Only two files there. Only changed permissions on the one.

darrel@BentoMini:~/.config/pcmanfm$ ls -l default

-rw-rw-r-- 1 darrel darrel  55 May  2 17:43 desktop-items-0.conf

Mini4, since it's the latest one with all the changes. Never got Mini3 going. More on that, later.

The sysv-rc-conf run in a terminal emulator is what I'm using in the Openbox Control Center. I finally got all the bugs worked out, choice of terminal emulator (sakura), icon sets, etcetera. I just need to wrap it all up in a tarball with an installer.

After a lot of testing, I finally settled on using the PentiumIII as the test machine. Unless you count my two Amiga 4000s, I have two "vintage" computers from around the year 2000. The AMD will hold more RAM, but it has only one IDE channel, meaning I can only use one CD drive and one hard drive. The PIII will only hold 512MB of RAM, no matter what, but it's enough.

I never got Bento2 Mini3 to start on the PIII. I tried from CD and from USB stick. After getting the hardware for the PIII in shape, (the video card had to be swapped out for a better ATI card), I burned my Deb-e17 iso to the same USB stick and booted it from the PLOP floppy. Booted right up and asked me for my wireless password. The machine had a bunch of PCLOS stuff on it. (LXDM testing, SLIM and LightDM login managers and Openbox, LXDE, e17, RazorQt, IceWM and WindowMaker desktops all installed.) Although it was completely updated, I've completely blown away that installation now. Since the Deb-e17 was up and running, I reformatted and installed that. Works a charm.

I burned Bento2 Mini4 to the same USB stick, using the exact same Unetbootin procedure. With the replacement video card installed, I got no OUT OF SYNC video errors. However, when booting from the USB stick, I got the following errors:

Citer
BUSYBOX ERROR:
(initramfs) mount: mounting /dev/loop0 on //filesystem.squashfs failed: Invalid argument
can not mount /dev/loop0 (cdrom/casper/filesystem.squashfs) on //filesystem.squashfs

Not being one to give up, I gave it the old "college try" and burned Bento2 Mini4 to a CD. Popped it into the drive and selected "Try Ubuntu" on bootup. It booted successfully all the way to the desktop. I plugged the wireless password into network-manager-gnome and got a connection. Everything worked. I have no idea why that machine won't boot the same ISO image from a USB drive.

Yeah, I noticed the etc-xdgautostart line in ~/.config/openbox/autostart. I thought it must be an Ubuntu program.

not etc-xdgautostart : xdg-autostart, by mimas. You won't find it in the Ubuntu repositories, and it's not even packaged. I have just compiled it, put the files in a small filesystem like tree directory and made a tarball available here, so far. :)

I'll check the rest after. This seems enough to me for one single post.


/Edit: you have wrote a lot since you started to test. I will have to start reading you again from the beginning and do some tests too, related to what you brought back. I'll try to go through it all in detail during the week-end. Just one thing about the USB stick, yes it's strange. Here installing on two machines, from the same USB stick didn't bring any issue at all. The method used to install to USB was this one:
Make a bootable USB stick by hand with Grub legacy. Just in case you would want to try... I also noticed that some of my USB sticks were better than others for booting a distro, so it's always the same two which are used for this purpose now.

You could also try to prepare a bootable thumbdrive from within an Ubuntu Openbox already installed, the gui method using the Ubuntu native tool has worked well for me as well up to now with USB Creator GTK which is installed:
Bootable and persistence on USB stick with Ubuntu and USB Creator Gtk.

About the bento2 version 3 : it was a prior version of the kernel, so who knows if the newer kernel didn't help in your case? (Or was it just you changing the graphic card?)

About clipit, tested in bento2 version 4 in Virtualbox.

I have copied the file /etc/xdg/autostart/clipit-startup.destkop to the /home/melodie/.config/autostart directory. Once there I have edited the file and removed completely these two lines:
OnlyShowIn=GNOME;XFCE;LXDE;
X-GNOME-Autostart-enabled=true


Then I have restarted the X session. It was started, and was showing in the tray in tint2.
It should work for you too. As I understand things, all xdg compliant applications should behave this way, providing there are no specific lines related to a specific desktop.

all the contrary, most of them bring feedback about it not working. 3 over 5 to be precise:
3 say it does not work, 2 bring a wish regarding what the User Interface or alternate user interface could be. See:

Jacob Peddicord reported on 2010-08-05
https://bugs.launchpad.net/jobsadmin/+bug/613946

Citer
The UI has gone through three different designs during GSoC:

* The initial list & details design
* Full-window listview (feedback from mpt)
* Two-pane listview and settings

Each has built on the previous, and especially for the final two-pane design I've tried to keep mpt's feedback in mind. The reason for reverting to a two-pane display is due to the emphasis on job settings: we want to make them more visible for tweaking, not hidden behind a password-protected button. Further changes likely need to be done, however, and this bug is open for that.

which bug was confirmed by Jacob Peddicord on 2010-08-05. We can see he confirmed because after he wrote the bug report he changed the status himself:

Due to a personal fatfingering, I accidentally deleted the repository I was referring to and not the daily one. Sorry about that. I'll work on getting it back online. :-P

The version in Precise is the 0.8.0-0ubuntu3 and the launchpad page to his repos leads to a 404 error as you can see from here: https://launchpad.net/~jpeddicord/+archive/ppa/jobs

The sysv-rc-conf run in a terminal emulator is what I'm using in the Openbox Control Center. I finally got all the bugs worked out, choice of terminal emulator (sakura), icon sets, etcetera. I just need to wrap it all up in a tarball with an installer.

This is most probably in Debian and not in Ubuntu. Ubuntu has a mixture of services not yet ported from sysvinit to upstart and some services relying on upstart. I don't think it can work in recent versions of Ubuntu. I will give it a try again to be check (although I think I have checked some time ago... ). I would like to say it's not very user friendly, even if it would work. And some services are not checked as being started, such as dbus : which is most probably started from somewhere else, who knows where ? :)

I just tried to configure zram from within sysv-rc-conf, (which I started with sudo) to be started in levels 2 to 5, commented out the line I had used for it in /etc/rc.local (not the best but... still waiting to get another better idea) and rebooted.

Well it does not work. The result is:
melodie@vbox:~$ cat /proc/swaps
Filename Type Size Used Priority
/dev/sda5                               partition 522236 0 -1
melodie@vbox:~$

no zram started.

With the line
service zram-config start
just before
exit 0
in the rc.local file there is no problem.

I would just want to know how to do the other way around, such as having sshd installed and not running by default if I don't want it to, or cups, and any service that can be needed just once a while.

Au contraire? Well, that will teach me to speed read something. Or, maybe not.

I would just want to know how to do the other way around, such as having sshd installed and not running by default if I don't want it to, or cups, and any service that can be needed just once a while.

That's one of the "problems" systemd is supposed to address, isn't it? For example, one of the things systemd does is terminate any daemon that has been idle for a specified period of time. Anyway, all this brings up a good point. With all the sysvinit alternatives popping up, there is no "one size fits all" utility to control system services at bootup. Ubuntu has upstart, with some services still running under sysvinit. Arch, Fedora, Suse, Mageia and others have switched to systemd. Gentoo has forked udev to something called eudev because they don't like the direction udev and systemd are going in.

Debian still uses sysvinit, although systemd is in the repos. The Debian repos have tools to control services started by either sysvinit or systemd. Back to Ubuntu, I'm unable to find anything in the repos that is a GUI or CLI program for controlling upstart jobs, other than jobs-admin and its dependency jobservice.

In Archlinux there is a gui program having for name 'Systemd System Manager', which works great. There are also good pages on the wikis: the English one and the French one if we want to manage some of the services/targets by hand.

In Fedora I have seen a very good gui to manage the services, and working well too, as does the one in Archlinux. (On the other hand I don't like the Fedora package manager outputs too much... however I must say it works well and is easy enough to understand).

In Ubuntu I have been told I could create "override" files for the services to be stopped and not started during boot time. That's for a user friendly distro ?!

I think I will next ask the question directly on the dev mailing list, but not before I can take the time to test the jobs-admin gui with it's jobservice non gui backend in the more recent ubuntu versions, as Xubuntu, Lubuntu...

The XDG_MENU_PREFIX must be set to get the "Applications" section to work within PCManFM. I usually defined this in ~/.configure/openbox/environment file.

As lxde-applications.menu is used, it probably be a good choice to set XDG_MENU_PREFIX like this: export XDG_MENU_PREFIX="lxde-".

You need to update PCManFM/LibFM from PPA. The installed version has GTK3 in its dependencies, that's a big surprise! :)
