Re: [Geary] file where program preferences are saved?

Hey Niels

No result from below command.

Anyway, I could not reproduce the strange issue I described in my first message.
Everything seems to work fine again.

Hey Federico!

For the record: we didn't rename the file, as that wasn't necessary (if you want to know, we create/remove the autostart file in '~/.config/autostart/' at runtime based on the aforementioned preference).

To be honest, your situation reminds me a bit of the (unfinished) patch in bug 775956 (making a Geary DBus-activatable), in which we *did* have to modify
the geary-autostart file.

Could you please run the following command and check if it returns any results?

$ ls /usr/share/dbus-1/services | fgrep 'org.gnome.Geary'

If so, please delete that file and make sure you have the latest master

If that didn't solve your problem, don't hesitate to reply so we can look
further into this together. I'm also available most of the time on in the #geary channel, if you prefer that.

Kind regards,

P.S. thank you for taking your time to test and translate Geary!

And if I check that option, geary seems to be called without the --hidden option:

$ ps aux | grep geary
fede 13962 16.6 3.2 3474744 263200 tty2 RLl+ 15:00 0:14 geary

Perhaps because the autostart desktop file has not been renamed as org.Gnome...?

$ cat desktop/
[Desktop Entry]
_GenericName=Mail Client
_X-GNOME-FullName=Geary Mail
_Comment=Send and receive email
Exec=geary --hidden

There's a long discussion here:

Perhaps Niels can shed some light..

BTW, the impression is confirmed.
I see that after closing Geary, the process stays active, even if "always watch for new mail" is unchecked.

In fact geary is called without arguments:

$ ps aux | grep geary
fede 6646 24.7 3.3 3507672 273676 tty2 SLl+ 13:44 0:08 geary

I'm running a self-compiled version on Fedora:

$ geary --version
geary master~g5ab6f42

Hi all

I know that the settings files are organized this way:

- ~/.config/geary contains the .ini files which define the email settings for each account - ~/.local/share/geary contains database and attachments for each account

What about the settings defined in the Preferences (which are valid for every account)?
There's a file somewhere where these settings are stored?

I'm asking this question because I have the impression that on my desktop computer Geary is always checking for new mail, even if the relevant preference is not checked.

Thanks in advance
