        You could try with spaceFM or terminal as root to copy it from /usr/share/applications to /etc/xdg/autostart.

        Sorry, doesnt work for me. I just tried it.

          Did you try adding a line to start it in the file ~/.desktop-session/startup? That should work for all the pre-installed window managers. Or you could try the startup file for a specific window manager like ~/.icewm/startup.

            You would need to enable xdg autostart in ~/.desktop-session/desktop-session.conf
            Then restart the session

                Hello all πŸ™‚
                That did the trick !
                “adding a line to start it in the file ~/.desktop-session/startup”
                added the following to the end of the file

                #edited by me the user to start plank
                plank

                Thanks all πŸ˜‰
                Going to mark as solved πŸ™‚
