Wondering if this is considered to be a bug or not, but on debian wheezy, Japanese environment, when I log in, every now and then saved session windows of various applications move to different workspaces, or just fail to be restored.
The applications I usually leave open are the terminal emulator (xfce's) and file manager (Thunar). But gedit and firefox, if I leave them out, sometimes move as well.
I'm guessing this is a problem in parsing the session save data. Is there a specific log I can check or something?
Or is this just a not-fully-implemented feature I should ignore? That wouldn't really be a problem, either.
Hello and welcome.
Didn't Debian wheezy use Xfce 4.8? If that's the version you have installed, it is very old. To look for logs, look at your X session log which might be something like ~/.xsession-errors.
You can also run xfce4-session in verbose mode to create an ~/.xfce4-session.verbose.log file. To do so, export the environment variable "XFSM_VERBOSE=true". You can do this by creating an /etc/profile.d/xfce4-session-log.sh file with the following content:
...and logging out and back in again.
