Ubuntu – Programs autostarting, but not in list

12.10autostartxubuntu

Background: Whenever I log into my account, gmusicbrowser and two chromium windows open. I checked my list of autostarting programs in the settings manager, and they aren't in it: enter image description here

Question: Why are these opening? What can I do to stop them from opening?

Best Answer

  • Ah, silly me - the answer was a pretty dumb mistake.

    I had unknowingly had "Save session for future logins" checked, which when I logged out saved having chrome and gmusicbrowser open, thus causing every login afterwards to automatically open these programs.

    Solved this by closing everything, checking "Save session for future logins", and logging out. Logged back in, and nothing opened!
