I'm running Xubuntu 13.10 with xfce4-panel 4.10.1 and my sessions keeps getting saved involuntarily. I'm well aware that this is a bug so I'd like to ask if anyone knows a workaround to permanently disable/delete this feature (by removing/editing some files maybe)?
I've spent hours searching and tried a lot of the methods already but none of them worked, or at least were not permanent. Some of the stuff I've tried:
How can I turn off Xfce session saving system-wide?
(This basically just removed the tick-box in the logout prompt)
Xubuntu reopens last session applications even though it shouldn't
(Deleting the cached sessions was not a permanent solution)
I would greatly appreciate your help!
My temorarily solution:
I created a simple bash script and placed an
application launcher (which runs the script when pressed) on my task
panel. The script will delete the "~/.cache/sessions" directory and
promt log out.
The script can be found here: http://pastebin.com/aqx483pn
Basically this will be the button which you use to logout/reboot/shutdown.
Update: This only occurs if you added "restart" to the listing, in your "Action Button" (the button with your username written on). If you restart using
log out -> restart it should reboot normally and not save your session. Thus, the temporarily solution above is not necessary, I will leave it there as a reference.
