Yes,in theory i should have <Fn><F6> = toggle on/off volume, <Fn><F7> =
lower volume, <Fn><F8> = raise volume ; but they do not work.

No, i did not tweak anything internally. I waited for 14.04 to start
with keyboard shortcuts.

Me too, i'm under the impression that ~/.config/autostart does not do

No,i've no other De's installed (save i copied some fluxbox settings
from another environment, but did not make it operational).

Which config files do ou have in mind.

BUT: Why the hell lxsession-default-apps installs a xfce-power-manager
desktop file in autostart when there is no xfce-power-manager at all
installed in my system?
