NAME

systemd-xdg-autostart-generator - User unit generator for XDG autostart files

SYNOPSIS

/usr/lib/systemd/user-generators/systemd-xdg-autostart-generator

DESCRIPTION

systemd-xdg-autostart-generator is a generator that creates .service units for XDG autostart [1] files. This permits desktop environments to delegate startup of these applications to systemd(1) .

Units created by systemd-xdg-autostart-generator can be started by the desktop environment using "xdg-desktop-autostart.target". See systemd.special(7) for more details.

XDG autostart may be conditionalized using both standardized and non-standardized keys. In order to handle these, the generator may create one or more ExecCondition= entries. For non-standardized keys, well-known helper binaries provided by Desktop Environments are used. All external helpers must detect their corresponding desktop environment and must return success when run in a different environment. This is important as all ExecCondition= directives must succeed for an application to be started.
