2.gnome-session-properties is not found so not able to add some scripts which i want to run during startup .same i can see in openSuse11.3
Hi and welcome to the Forum
This is because the switch to GNOME Shell, sounds like your using the ‘Classic’ option (panel at the bottom). Consider switching to the non-classic version (logout, select the cog and change). The ‘Classic’ option is controlled via customized shell extensions, trying to change those can cause issues…
I have found just switching and adding shell extensions from https://extensions.gnome.org and not touching the installed ones should give you the customization’s your after…
thanks for quick reply , yes i was using SLE Classic ,now i have switched to GNOME ,i tried some extensions like dashtoPanel, distractionFree, mmod etc. dashtopanel worked for me.
thanks for your help
can you suggest something for my second problem as well which is unavailability of ** “gnome-session-properties”** in SLED12 sp4 .
This is done via Tweaks → Startup applications, or if not in list, my preferred method for a custom application/script is to create a desktop file in ~/.config/autostart/
