Removing KDE application viewport at startup

#1 Post by eemaestro » Wed Mar 08, 2017 2:42 pm

What can I do to prevent kgpg from starting up automatically at login? The viewport always pops up right after I login, and I have to close it manually. Still there next time I log in. Right now there is nothing in ~/.kde/Autostart/.

Looks like the culprit is /usr/share/autostart/kgpg.desktop. Rename it to something like kgpg.desktop.backup to see if that stops it.

I tried that Stevo, moving it to my home folder as you suggested, but it didn't work.

You might want to try editing /home/<your_username/.kde/share/config/kgpgrc. Try toggling the next line from false to true. I am not sure which it needs to be.

Code: Select all

First run=false
If that does not work try changing

Code: Select all

autostart=true to auotstart=false

Code: Select all

$ ls -Fdltr .kde/share/config/*gpg*
ls: cannot access .kde/share/config/*gpg*: No such file or directory
jon@mepis1:~$ ls -aFdltr .kde/share/config/*gpg*
ls: cannot access .kde/share/config/*gpg*: No such file or directory
jon@mepis1:~$
I don't seem to be able to find that file....

Code: Select all

jon@mepis1:~/.kde/share$ find ./ -name "*gpg*"
./config/session/kgpg_10e0967069000148726680300000030000010_1487316925_147531
./config/session/kgpg_10e0967069000148726680300000030000010_1489020318_764706
I should probably just remove kgpg with APT. I don't need it.

It should be here. It is in a hidden directory

Code: Select all

ls -Fdltr .kde/share/config/*gpg*
-rw------- 1 richard richard 827 Mar  3 14:11 .kde/share/config/kgpgrc
config – Dolphin_008.png
EDIT: Possibly it is created on first run configuration.

Where in your home folder did you move that desktop file?

Into the base of my home directory. It's still owned by root.
