VidyoDesktop autostart on login under Linux

Your VidyoDesktop client on Linux always starts when you login no matter your settings? I mean, you unset «Start VidyoDesktop on login» and it’s ignoring you? Solution:

rm ~/.config/autostart/VidyoDesktop.desktop
sudo rm /etc/xdg/autostart/VidyoDesktop.desktop

Why the option doesn’t work is beyond me, but this does.


Reading spree: What If?

Wow, almost another year of hardly even looking at the blog. So what am I up to? Working quite a bit on the ATLAS Phase II Upgrade in Freiburg, with a new life in Germany and getting a little bit in better shape.

And also reading, quite a few books. Although work and the new life in Germany keeps me very busy, I still enjoy the occasional book, usually just devouring them. The last one was What If?, by Randall Munroe from the xkcd webcomic.

It’s a very interesting and enjoyable piece of work, suitable for people who know nothing about science or world class physicists 🙂
