Hi all, After Marty Jack did a great job on reworking the logout mechanism and make a new release, I'd like to do more. I just add support shell expansion support to lxsession. Commands in autostart file now can contain environment variables. This is done with wordexp() provided in glibc.
Here are other plans: 1. I want to rename the file autostart to session to better indicate its use, defining application set of the desktop session. This is not the right place for users to add their autostart programs. Instead they should use ~/.config/autostart. 2.the format might be changed slightly. By default the session file is /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE/session, but if the users really need to customize it, they can use ~/.config/lxsession/LXDE/session to do their own customization. For example, to turn off lxpanel, they can write this in their user-custom session file. !lxpanel --profile LXDE The ! can negate the default apps defined in system-wide session file and inhibit them. 3.The config values in desktop.conf from /etc and ~/.config should be merged on a per-key basis so when a value is not in user config file, default should be obtained from system-wide config file. 4. The buttons in lxsession-logout need some rework. Current ones looks weird. The buttons are very wide, but only few text plus a small icon on it. Maybe two rows of buttons will be better. Before I start anything, any suggestions or comments? _______________________________________________ Mailing list: https://launchpad.net/~lubuntu-desktop Post to : firstname.lastname@example.org Unsubscribe : https://launchpad.net/~lubuntu-desktop More help : https://help.launchpad.net/ListHelp
