Thanks for the suggestion. My reply delay is due to this week being filled with appointments and I have not had the time to investigate this. It has made me think of a few other possibilities to try, though. If and when I get any more information, I will post it.

Perhaps you have a ~/.bash_profile that you can modify by adding "Exec=libreoffice5.0 %U" to it.

I have little experience with Xfce, but I understand this is where 'at login' commands are to appear.

Thanks for the suggestion. Someone else suggested that and I discovered in my Xfce desktop, that option is already checked. Just for grins, I tried unchecking it and there was no difference.

I think the problem has to do with that "session=" argument that LO5 does not like. Xfce is passing it, but LO5 is not accepting it. The ".desktop" file uses the %U argument.

   Exec=libreoffice5.0 %U

I suspect the two methods of starting LO5 are different and that is why it works when I use the desktop icon, which uses the ".desktop" file, but not when Xfce is restoring the last session.

Hello Girvin

In Xfce, when you click on the logout button on the taskbar there is a checkbox "Save session for future logins"...

Would this be a way to solve your problem?

I am running Slackware Linux 14.1 (K3.10.17), Xfce 4, and Libreoffice (binary .rpm download from LO website).

I prefer to keep several oft-used LO files open all the time. These files are open when I shut down the session. When I start the next session, LO will not autoload these files and in fact will not run at all. When I then start LO5 manually from the desktop icon, these files are opened. I created a log of the Xfce output from the startup, which included the startup of LO5 and got the following snippet:


LibreOffice 490fc03b25318460cfc54456516ea2519c11d1aa

Unknown option: --session=2c07016df-92b0-47a4-8398-8d806cdb3d0c
