All of a sudden I started having something strange happen the other day. For some reason, the "network-admin" utility keeps starting when I login. I checked "~/me/Desktop/Autostart" to find that it no longer actually exists with XFCE 4.4. Discovering the new "xfce4-autostart-editor" I checked that out only to find two entries....neither of which was the "network-admin" I was looking for.........I am now rather perplexed by this and don't know where to go next.....
thanks for the help in advance
Is "starting network-admin" one of the text on the Xfce splash screen? Then Xfce is starting it.
If not, take a look in ~/.bashrc, ~/.xinit and ~/.bash_profile.
I do see it in the Splash Screen. But I really cannot find where it is coming from.
I think I've searched everywhere.
How about locating the parent process, or watching an output debug to see how it is being launched?
It could be started by xfce-session, try killing it then log out and save your session.
