Thanks for your reboot.
Yes, you are right. The settings pops ON after logout or reboot.
I need to investigate why this happens.

You can also see the settings in dconf-editor. Browse to apps -> audio-recorder
$ dconf-editor
Install first dconf-tools package.

One can also list the values with
$ dconf dump /apps/audio-recorder/

The error is obviously in src/auto-start.c module, function autostart_set(...).

// Create Exec line; "audio-recorder --show-window=0 --show-icon=1".
// It hides the main window and shows the systray icon.
gchar *cmd = g_strdup_printf("%s --show-window=0 --show-icon=1", PACKAGE);
g_key_file_set_string(key_file, G_KEY_FILE_DESKTOP_GROUP, G_KEY_FILE_DESKTOP_KEY_EXEC, cmd);

Also src/main.c needs some changes, because it should not save the --show-icon=? value in GSettings (dconf).

I will fix this in Raring 13.04, and maybe in 12.10. I have not developed for 12.10 for ages.

Hi, I'm sorry if I haven't understood all the things you had suggested to correct in your post as I'm rather a noob in Linux, but the fact you mentioned Autostat gave me a hint, so I went into Startup Applications and just unmarked Audio Recorder. Since that the icon doesn't appear anymore on the panel, that's actually what I wanted to get. Thank you!

I made some changes to the code so it respects option for the systray icon (in settings).
You may need to visit the settings and set the options ON/OFF at least once so the corresponding files are updated.

I have now pushed the updated code to the launchpad.
New packages for Ubuntu 13.04 will follow within the next couple of days.

The options for autostart and systray icon need some more work. I will review the code once more. I'll be back later.

This solution works better.

New packages for Ubuntu 13.04 will follow within the next couple of days.

Packages for Ubuntu 13.04 have been updated with audio-recorder v1.1.1.

You can update your version with:
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get upgrade

Please test and report your findings.
