Restoring Session Status

CentOS 2 Comments

I am running CentOS 6.6 on both a couple of servers and on a laptop. When I let the laptop sleep, window states and positions are restored correctly when I awaken it. However, when I shut down the laptop, later turn it on and log in, none of the terminal windows and directory windows are restored correctly to e.g. minimized state, instead they are restored to when they last were in use.

Naturally, this is a little bit annoying: have I missed a setting somewhere?

  • Run ‘gnome-session-properties’, go to the ‘Options’ tab, and check
    ‘Automatically remember …’.

    I don’t use that setting, and I have no idea whether all applications honour it. But it’s worth a try.

  • Had a chance to check that today: while it remembers which programs were running when the session was last ended (and I did have it checked), it does not allow me to make sure terminal sessions or directory windows which were minimized when I logged out are also minimized when I log in next time.

    Does anyone know if this is possible in CentOS 6?
