Description David H. Gutteridge 2016-08-05 00:47:33 UTC
Description of problem:

When Gnome 3 and Plasma-Workspace are both installed, KAlarm starts under a Gnome session. (I was inspired to report this by bug 1361765, which was also affecting me.) (BTW, I couldn't find a package named "kalarm" to choose from on the component list above.)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log into a Gnome session.
2. Note that KAlarm has started.

Additional info:

I looked at bug 1361765 for hints on how to deal with this, but the file /etc/xdg/autostart/kalarm.autostart.desktop doesn't have the same setting. I also tried changing settings in KAlarm's preferences panel, e.g. un-checking "start at login", but that doesn't seem to have any effect. It's relatively recently that KAlarm has started behaving like this.

Comment 1 Rex Dieter 2016-08-09 20:30:44 UTC
See also,

just found these, looks like the behavior here is intentional... If you do not want it to autostart, configure it to do so in it's settings.

Comment 2 David H. Gutteridge 2016-08-09 20:46:17 UTC
Sure, but in it's stated "But it shouldn't start if it has never been used, or if the user has explicitly disabled start-at-login for it." I have explicitly disabled start-at-login in KAlarm's settings, and it still starts every time. Anyway, I'll jump on that bug upstream.
