Hello

Xfce4 doesn't restore all the terminals open when the session was closed down and, for the only one it does restore, it forgets its position.

In "Session and Startup" in "Settings", "Automatically save session on logout" is checked.

Once upon a time it saved both the number and position, I haven't changed the configuration (I think). Has this facility been removed?

Chris

I don't usually use this feature, but I just turned it on, left some xterm terminals around the screen and logged out/in and it restored them where I left them. It put the couple config/state files in ~/.cache/sessions

Thanks -- I've just looked in .cache/sessions and it has nothing more recent than Oct 25...

I'll try removing the .config/xfce4 and .config/xfce4-session and start again ... hmmm .config/xfce4-session/ is empty ... suspicious.

Thanks again,

Chris

Thank you, that's sorted it.

I shouldn't have assumed that the same config will work with the next version without problems :idea:

Thanks again,

Chris
