Unwanted program when starting XFCE

When I start xfce, acroread starts also and tries to open a old file I had with my current user. (not root)

this is followup of http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-50 … +xfce.html
but no solution  :?

It's nothing in ~/Desktop/Autostart and neither in ~/.config/autostart
I remove acroread (no error), I put again and it starts again.

Re: Unwanted program when starting XFCE

If this is caused by the session manager, it should be fixed by closing the application -> quit -> check the "save session box" -> logout. If you don't have this a logout dialog, there should be an option in the session manager settings to enable it.

Re: Unwanted program when starting XFCE

That was my first solution, I even removed autostart for grelk2, skype, amsn. Saved the session with no open programs. And acroread starts agains.

Re: Unwanted program when starting XFCE

You can try to remove the xfce4-session package and then start xfce, if the acroread is still launched, some other application triggers it...

Re: Unwanted program when starting XFCE

After removing xfce4-session, acroread stop loading (A root session doesn't have acroread starting)

So I reinstalled xfce4-session and close all windows and made save session, re-login, and the problem goes on.
Acroread continues to open on xfce4 start.

Re: Unwanted program when starting XFCE

And what happens when you run rm -Rf ~/.cache/sessions.

Re: Unwanted program when starting XFCE

Did you cleared ~/.cache/sessions/ while you were logged out? If it's neither in the session file nor in autostart, then it's not xfce4-session starting acroread.

Re: Unwanted program when starting XFCE

I removed xfce4-session and clean ~/.cache/sessions/. And it's neither in ~/Desktop/Autostart.
While xfce4-session is not installed, acroread doesn't start.

When I start gnome this problems doesn't happen
