I have an aging (and ailing) laptop running xubuntu. Often it locks up and i have to hard-reboot it, which isn't the problem i'm asking about here (i accept it as part of using an old laptop). The problem is that when it starts up it launches a few command window apps, each with loads of tabs open, and a few nautilus windows, again with tabs, and some other stuff that i don't want.
In the systen preferences (Xfce 4 settings manager) there's a list of apps to autostart. But, nautilus and the terminal aren't in there. In the next tab, "Session", there's a list of open apps which it considers to be part of the current session. I assume this is what's driving the opening of the various windows on startup - it's trying to resurrect some old saved session.
I don't want Xfce to try to resurrect an old session, EVER. Can anyone tell me where to find the config to tell xubuntu to stop doing this?
My xubuntu version is
Xfce 4 Desktop Environment version 4.6.1 (Xfce 4.6)
