    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 🙂
    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 😉
    Going to mark as solved 🙂
