Description of problem:
I added some scripts into Autostart to run at login using the System Settings tool. When I log in, the scripts do not run.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add a script to Autostart using the System Settings tool
2. Log out
3. Log in
The scripts do not run at login.
After some investigation, I discovered that the System Settings tool is creating links to the scripts in ~/.config/autostart-scripts, but Plasma is looking for scripts to run in ~/.config/plasma-workspace/env
If I manually create the links in ~/.config/plasma-workspace/env, the scripts run as expected.
FYI just an additional comment for anyone who looks at this, Plasma now ignores any scripts that do not end in the suffix ".sh" according to the document at
and also according to my testing.
This not part of this bug, but it is a change to take into account if one is looking into this.
Thank you Brian both for the report of the fault; and your diagnosis which should aid a speedy correction.

For completeness, I added a script to Logout Scripts using System Settings, and that link appears to be written to the correct directory, ~/.config/plasma-workspace/shutdown.
