SimpleScreenRecorder and Dolphin unwantedly autostarting

Postby debian121212 » 2019-08-25 06:08

Using SimpleScreenRecorder 0.3.11, Dolphin (Version 18.08.0), on latest XFCE 4.12, on Debian Stable (10/Buster).

SimpleScreenRecorder and Dolphin unwantedly autostarting (automatically, without my consent) every time I turn on the computer (after having had shut the apps down before restarting/poweroff). Went to Settings /Sessions and Startup and nothing about SimpleScreenRecorder or Dolphin there.

Any suggestions?

Lagging the startup process. Not even using Dolphin as main file manager anymore.

Tried deleting
Code: Select all
/home/USER/.cache/sessions/


as per
Code: Select all
https://askubuntu.com/questions/125718/how-can-i-stop-terminal-and-firefox-from-launching-on-startup


and had success!!! However, how do I prevent this from happening in the future? Really lags the startup. I usually use

Code: Select all
systemctl reboot


and

Code: Select all
systemctl poweroff


bound to hotkeys in order to reboot or poweroff.

Does this have anything to do with it and I just need to bind a modified version of those commands or something along those lines?

Hey, did you turn off "Automatically save sessions on logout"?

Perhaps the processes get stuck when you close them? Try checking top/htop

Thx!! It seems like a glitch however since I actually want it to remember session.

It opens simple screen recorder on startup for example even when I wasn't using it before logging out; so it shouldn't be a part of the apps I want it to "resume" at all.

Will definately try checking top/htop/monitoring the processes in future for for this type of issue if it happens again.
