by default I'd like to avoid starting gnome services if possible ...

In my past installation I used a trick: I've put a link to

... and solve this in a system-wide way so users only tweak their Autostart
other stuff.I put esd in /etc/xdg/xfce4-session/xfce4-session.rc but it
didn't start
I'll need to look at it again.

Are you sure it's not in your ~/.config settings? In hoary I think we had
that indeed.

what is that plugin called? Looking in the plugins I could not find
something similar. But I found 'show desktop' which may be good by deafault
too?What do others think? It's in gnome too.
