Do we want to manage this within the application itself (i.e. have a autostart option in the settings dialog)?

Or should we manage all the autostart applications in the System --> Preferences --> Startup Applications menu?

In parcellite (and other programs) autostart is handled by adding the appropriate .desktop file to the /etc/xdg/autostart/ directory in the debian package. Alternatively, we can add the .desktop file to the user's ~/.config/autostart directory.

We should definitely create a appropriate .desktop file and add it to /etc/xdg/autostart. The question is, if we want to let the user enable or disable such a autostart only with the Startup application menu or if it can additionally be changed in Diodon itself?

I personally think, we should leave our settings dialog clean and do not add any unnecessary options.

I agree. Let's keep all the startup application in one place and not add the setting to Diodon itself.

Added intltool translation extraction support to the diodon.desktop file.

Open issue:
* File still needs to be copied to /etc/xdg/autostart
