    Default htop doesn't autostart at login in kde though htop.desktop file is in ~/.config/autostart by kde

    Good day dear opensuse user !

    I just installed 42.2 because i need to replace my 13.1 .

    I want htop to start at every login .

    So i used the kde system configuration interface to choose the htop program to start at login .

    I can see that the htop.desktop file is here in the ~/.config/autostart directory , as expected .
    But no htop started at login , though i logged out and in many times ....
    Yet, when i click on this htop.desktop file, htop starts without problems ....

    Isn't it strange ?

    BTW, gkrellm2 starts at every login without problems.... And there are no gkrellm2 scripts or .desktop files neither in the ~/.config/autostart directory , nor in the ~/.config/autostart-scripts directory ...

    i don't understand.

    Just try inserting 'htop' (the command) in your autostart folder. That should work if /usr/bin is in your PATH.

    Yes i edited a script that i put in the ~/.config/autostart-scripts directory.
    Of course.
    But this is a bug if you use the gui and it doesn't work as expected.

    htop is command line not a GUI where do you expect it to run??

    Well since it was in the menu, and since you can click it , i thought that it could be considered as a normal "window" program.
    But it's ok.

    What I wrote was to use just the command - not a script.
