Subject has everything.

What causes /home/pi/start.sh to be called and launch kerbersossdr. Trying to duplicate the launch on another system for APRS, also what launches the radar window that briefly pops up when KerberosSDR gets the the desktop. I see start.sh bring up kerberossdr, but not what the radar.

I think there's some legacy history at play here...

I finally found it...

/etc/xdg/autostart is where within kerberos.desktop a [Desktop Entry] for Name=Kerberos has a Exec=/home/pi/start.sh

Now that I've found this, time to go back to the start for my use case and adhere to current approach and within ~/.config create the lxsession file structure so my config matches current docs on how to autostart GUI applications.

My efforts resulted in repeated login screens and I reverted to duplicating the /etc/xdg adding the program I wanted to launch rather than trying to figure out why user autorun didn't work on the other system.
