Please remember to mark the FIRST posting in the topic (SOLVED), not the last one ;)

I've done this one for you.



You'd named the file "SkypeAutostart", insted of say "SkypeAutostart.desktop"

The file needs to be called

some_name_or_other.desktop

Though once you populate it correctly it will display in pcmanfm by the name in the
Name=
line.

.desktop files are odd in this respect, their ACTUAL name needs to end with .desktop .. but when you add a "Name=" line to them their name will APPEAR to change in the GUI file manager .. but not in the command line.

Well, you learn something new everyday.  Again many thanks  :).
