preferences and calendar popup on login

Bug #208014 reported by Günter
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
xfce4-session (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: orage

(very similar to #186050)

on newest xubuntu hardy:

when I activate orage via "Settings Manager", everytime I login xfce, orage pop-ups up including the preferences dialog.

-> Session saving is deactivated
-> yes, I tried all "Calendar starts" options (hide/minimized) - and even then, I don't think the Preferences dialog should ever pop-up?

I can reproduce this by starting orage with preferences option:
orage -p
and then saving this session.

I bet if you do
ps -ef | grep orage
you will see that you have orage started like this?
and the parent process is

If that is the case, you can fix it by ending that Orage session
and starting new without any parameters and saving that session.

yep you are right. I figured out this is actually an issue of the session manager rather than of orage itself.

Check out: seems to happen with other apps, too.

Marked as invalid, please re-report it with xfce4-session if that's where the problem is.

As stated above, the issue seems to be in xfce4-session, so no need to file a new bug.

Ah well, I'll remember it for next time ;-)

Uh no, nevermind (sorry vincent). That's indeed invalid: the session is saved, so that's normal if orage is restarted with the same options...
