Description Christoph Wickert 2011-06-04 00:13:00 UTC
/etc/xdg/autostart/gnome-sound-applet.desktop does not meet the desktop entry specification:

$ desktop-file-validate /etc/xdg/autostart/nautilus-autostart.desktop
/etc/xdg/autostart/nautilus-autostart.desktop: error: value "GSettings org.gnome.desktop.background show-desktop-icons" for key "AutostartCondition" in group "Desktop Entry" contains an unregistered value "GSettings" for the condition; values extending the format should start with "X-"

Same problem with /etc/xdg/autostart/gnome-sound-applet.desktop from gnome-cpntrol-center and /etc/xdg/autostart/bluetooth-applet.desktop from gnome-bluetooth. Recently Unity has started introducing new keys without previous discussion or changes to the specs and it is sad that GNOME does the same.

Sorry, should read /etc/xdg/autostart/nautilus-autostart.desktop

Comment 2 Cosimo Cecchi 2012-10-22 16:18:24 UTC
This is now obsolete - desktop-file-utils 0.21 will correctly validate our autostart file (see [1]). Closing as OBSOLETE.

Comment 3 Christoph Wickert 2012-10-22 16:28:49 UTC
Can you elaborate this ? I don't see "AutostartCondition" in the desktop entry spec at
