Anyone know *what process* is generating '.xbindkeys.noauto' ?!?!?

It's driving me crazy... :evil:

Quick n' dirty way to get rid of it is...

PATH: /etc/rc.local
Code:
#!/bin/sh -e
#
# rc.local
#
# This script is executed at the end of each multiuser runlevel.
# Make sure that the script will "exit 0" on success or any other
# value on error.
#
# In order to enable or disable this script just change the execution
# bits.
#
# By default this script does nothing.

rm /home/vindsl/.xbindkeys.noauto
exit 0

There has to be a better way...

YES, it's added by the:-
Code:
# Install custom configuration to stop xbindkeys autoloading
if [ ! -f "$HOME/.xbindkeys.noauto" ]; then
    touch "$HOME/.xbindkeys.noauto"
fi

section of:-
/usr/bin/startpeppermint

But be aware .. we added that for a reason ;)

Aha!

I'll check it out later today. Thanks!

I *assume* you're doing that to postpone loading 'xbindkeys', until later in the boot process, so the ALT+CTRL+DEL shortcut works.

Whatever the reason(s) -- 'xbindkeys' (et al.) has quit auto-loading at boot/restart, on this Latitude D620 laptop.

The only way I can get 'xbindkeys' to load is very CLI. I tried every permutation of trickery to get 'xbindkeys' to auto-load, but the only thing that works is manually loading it from a terminal. Weird.

As a matter of fact...

If I could get 'xbindkeys' to load via ANY sort of scripting, then life would be good again, but as_it_stands, the only way to load 'xbindkeys' is through a terminal window. Every sort of scripting I've used, at every level, has failed to load 'xbindkeys'. I *guess* it wants me to give it the_finger.

The only options I have are to leave '.xbindkeys.noauto' in place, and manually load 'xbindkeys' everytime I boot/restart -- or, auto-remove '.xbindkeys.noauto' at boot/restart and do without the ALT-CTRL-DEL shortcut.

Oh, what a tangled web we weave... LoL! :lol:

have you tried loading xbindkeys from a .desktop file in
~/.config/autostart
?

If you start it from a .desktop file in the autostart directory, it may be a good idea to leave .xbindkeys-noauto in place, but stop xbindkeys from being loaded from
/etc/xdg/lxsession/Peppermint/autostart

[EDIT]

I *think* you assume correctly .. but can't remember off the top of my head .. if it's important, I can probably find out why we did it ?

Yes, that's the first thing I tried.

Our minds must work the same... :D

I'll be on the trot for a few hours.

Sorry it took so long to get back here. Real life has been cruel. If there were 52 hours in a day, and 365 weeks in a year, life would be much better, LoL!

As an aside, I've been having fits, trying to compile custom Linux 3.12-rc kernels on this Peppermint Four powered Latitude. Used to be no problem, but all of a sudden, it decided I had unmet dependencies, when I try to install the kernel -- which were actually being met.

Put another way, the kernel compiles just fine, but refuses to install over bogus unmet dependencies.

Today is the first day I succeeded (since it quit working). Had to compile the kernel, then dissect the debs, edit the control file, remove the bogus dependencies, save, then repack the debs. Sheesh!

Anyway, all's well that ends well.

Can you reboot .. and before manually running xbindkeys, post the output from:
Code:
ps aux | grep [x]bindkeys

and
Code:
gedit /etc/xdg/lxsession/Peppermint/autostart

and

Code:
@lxpanel --profile Peppermint
@xscreensaver -no-splash
@xfce4-power-manager
@pcmanfm --desktop --profile peppermint
@/usr/lib/policykit-1-gnome/polkit-gnome-authentication-agent-1
@mintinput1
@xdg-user-dirs-gtk-update
@xbindkey
@sh /home/vindsl/.config/autostart/.conky-start-delayed.sh

Hrm...

Think I'll remove that shell command, reboot, and see what happens...
