A little auto-startup headache relief. LDXE autostart file not read/ran.

How fitting for my first short post. I spent hours banging my head trying to figure out why my apps were not auto-starting with the xWindows LXDE sessions. Come to find out, that with the newest distribution of Noobs and Debian Squeeze for the Raspberry Pi, that the path was changed for the autostart file.

So for per user autostart, it’s not ~/.config/lxsession/LXDE/autostart … It’s now changed to ~/.config/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart …

This also goes with the system wide autostart as well. So instead of /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE/autostart , it is now changed to /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart …

Ok, so where is the asprin now. LOL. Anyways. I hope this helps relieves some headaches when it comes to why your having difficulty getting an app to auto start with your LDXE session.
