Bug Description

Binary package hint: evolution

evolution-alarm-notify gets automatically started in KDE sessions.

This is usually unwished for because KDE comes with it's own alarm notification system.

Proposed fix:
Add a
OnlyShowIn=GNOME;
line in /etc/xdg/autostart/evolution-alarm-notify.desktop

This is in current Feisty and only appears if you have evolution (for example as part of ubuntu-desktop) and KDE installed together.

This issue was introduced in kdelibs (4:3.5.6-0ubuntu4) with the patch
kubuntu_68_xdg_autostart.diff

PS: I dunno much about XFCE. If Evolution is also the default PIM application of XFCE, the above line should read
OnlyShowIn=GNOME;XFCE;
as in most other files under /etc/xdg/autostart

That upload fixes the problem:

 evolution (2.9.91-0ubuntu2) feisty; urgency=low
 .
   * debian/control:
     - use Desktop Team for Maintainer
   * debian/evolution-alarm-notify.desktop
     - use "OnlyShowIn=GNOME;" (Ubuntu: #85834)
