Ubuntu – Abiword starts automatically each restart


Abiword starts automatically each restart, on any user. Already checked out Startup Applications. Remember session is turned off.

(Unwanted application starts automatically when I login)

Additional info, may be it'll give a clue – I configured VNC server on this machine to run, so sometimes, in additional to regular Ubuntu/Unity sessions I start XFCE4 session. I think this behavior started after VNC4 configuration, but ~/.vnc/xstartup does not contain abiword – just regular xfce startup stuff.

What are additional places where I can look?

This is a bug in AbiWord associated with upgrade to Ubuntu 15.04. Resolved by removing AbiCollab.service as follows:

sudo rm -f /usr/share/dbus-1/services/org.freedesktop.Telepathy.Client.AbiCollab.service
