Thread: Pidgin not closing on xfce

  1. #1

    Default Pidgin not closing on xfce

    My system: 13.1 XFCE

    When I use Pidgin and try to close it it doesn't. I have to kill it with task manager and if I forget it autostarts after next boot. Any hints? Googling didn't bring much.

    I would start with contents of below folder locations according to
    freedesktop standards

    All users

    Code:
    /etc/xdg/autostart
    or

    Individual home
    Code:
    ~/.config/autostart/
    where ~ stands for /home/<UserName>

    Refer :-

    I think that you don't understand.

    Pidgin is not in autostart.

    When it is not started by my it wont start after boot. But whet I start it and want to quit it from inside the app it doesn't want to finish. I click close and nothing happens. I have to launch the Task Manager and kill the proces. If I will not do it then after the next boot pidgin will be launched automatically.

    This is a bug and it is anoying.

    If I leave chromium opened it will not start after next boot automatically.
