[Solved] Terminal pops up after booting

Postby kyomar » 10 Feb 2015 05:12

Hi, After running "configure-theme" to install the QtCurve/Evolvere theme everytime I boot the system the terminal window pops up. It's not a big problem but anoying. How can i stop the terminal from being loaded when booting the system?
Any help is greatly appreciated - thank you.

In System Setting->Startup and Shutdown->Autostart see if there is an entry for the Terminal and then un-tick it or remove it.
In Session Management-> On login, select " Start with an empty session". That might work

Thank you Gerard for your reply/help. I've checked the autostart already and couldn'd find an entry for the terminal. Session Management I couldn't find, propably not available in XFCE.

Sorry kyomar, when you said after installing Qtcurve/Evolver theme, i presumed you were using KDE.
Should have looked at your banner i guess

On SolydX, Greybird and Evolvere are configured. You can check that in your settings.
I have no idea why the terminal keeps popping up in SolydX.

I know a very rigorous way to try to solve this, though. It will reset your configuration to default (as if you just started a clean installation):

Code: Select all

cp -rvf /etc/skel/.* ~/
and logout/login.

@ Gerard, no worries I am greatful for any help.
@ Schoelje, thank you very much for your reply. I don't wanna reset the configuration. There must be another solution. After I had installed the evolvere theme, and didn't really like it, I changed the appereance settings to:
style: oxygen-gtk
icons: oxygen
Could this be the reason for the terminal popping up? Perhaps uninstalling evolvere would solve the problem, but how do I do that (and thunderbird has the evolvere icons as well now - which I would like to change to the default again)?
Thank you for your time.

Your issue has nothing to do with the icon set. Removing it won't change this and if you would, it can only be done by removing the SolydXK configuration, leaving your system "un-SolydXK-ed". You can remove the TB Evolvere theme by running this command:

Code: Select all

sudo apt purge solydxk-mozilla-evolvere-icon-theme
It seems that a temporary configuration file is not removed on logout/reboot that causes the terminal to open. There is one thing that might help:

Code: Select all

sudo chown -R $USER:$USER $HOME
Close all windows and reboot (from the start menu, not terminal). If this didn't work, you can still create a new user. I'm all out off ideas.

kyomar,
When you shutdown your machine, the small window that appears has an option to save the session for future logins (not sure about the exact text, as I use a Dutch setup). Is this unset?
I've had a lot of trouble with this when I accidentally set it once. No matter what I tried after that, I couldn't get rid of some of the applications that had been running. Because several of those were also in the autostart directory, I ended up with multiple instances of them every time I rebooted.
In the end I fixed it by hacking the file responsible for remembering the session. It should be ~/.cache/sessions/xfce4-session-<insert your system's hostname here>:0. Could you show us what your system's version looks like?
A word of warning: don't go taking bits out without changing the 'Count' (near the end of the file).

thank you Schoelje and Grizzler.
I run

Code: Select all

sudo chown -R $USER:$USER $HOME
but no success. I haven't "the save the session for future logins" set, so this shouldn't be the problem. Anyway, this is my session file

I simulated the session by opening the terminal in SolydX, logout and make sure to check "Save session for future logons".
After login, the terminal was started.
I then deleted ~/.cache/sessions/xfce4-session-* (it was a single file) and logged out making sure to uncheck "Save session for future logons".

The terminal did not start.

That's one way to do it. If I remember correctly, I tried that too and it messed up some settings (I really need to start keeping better notes.. :( ).

Alternative solution: remove everything from that session file that starts with Client6_ (that's the terminal starter), change the 7 following Count= to 6, save the file and log out and back in.

Hi Scheolje & Grizzler, I removed the entries as per Grizzlers instructions and the terminal doesn't pop up anymore - thank you so much. I was really tempted to try Schoelje's suggestion as well but didn't have the courage after reading grizzler's post. The advantage would have been a new clean session file. I am going to try this perhaps later but first I have to solve a problem with my usb hdd to store an image (clonezilla doesn't recognize the drive anymore). I will open a new post for that if I cannot find a solution soon.
