    I can not see all the start up programs in Ubuntu 12.04. I would like to disable the ubuntuone sync daemon from starting up because it uses a lot of memory.I did not install unutuone but the daemon starts automatically every time I log in.

    sudo sed -i 's/NoDisplay=true/NoDisplay=false/g' /etc/xdg/autostart/*.desktop

    I found this searching ,is this the right line to see all the start up items?

    I'm in an Xfce session and don't want to log out so this is with Xfce!

    Under Settings, there's Session and Startup. There, one has a GUI to tick/untick whatever should or shouldn't start. Other DEs will surely have the equivalent.

    Edit:
    (The skinny scrollbars are because I've kept the overlay-scrollbars introduced in 11.04; didn't like them then; but find them very convenient now! Plus they function just fine with Xfce.)
