Re: Disable Beagle-Startup


the beagle-desktop in /etc/xdg/Autostart was removed a while ago.
I don't have any clue why beagle starts.

The files in .config where removed too, so there should be no point with kde not respecting a gnome variable. Is there any other location beagle could be started from?

i'll have a look at the new edgy packages. the binaries i use are selfcompiled, but cause of an exception when calling beagle-info --daemon-version i dont know which version they are.

Hope someone has an idea where beagle could be started from,

Are you using Edgy?  You can get the latest packages from:

which is a lot more memory friendly.

i'm searching quite a while now how to disable beagles startup and
havent been able to find a working solution.

recently i read joe's notice to look at .config/... but neither removing
beagle.desktop nor editing the file and setting autostart to false
changed something.

Also take a look for autostart-beagle*.desktop files in
/etc/xdg/autostart.  Those are the system-wide defaults, and you can
remove them if you want.  The files in ~/.config override them, but
only if they're present.

I think that disabling might be broken in KDE, because it requires a
certain variable to be set in the file, and GNOME misinterprets it,
making the two effectively mutually exclusive.  I think the file that
gets created in ~/.config has a comment to this effect.
