Autostarting Nautilus doesn't work

Autostarting Nautilus Files, a file manger for GNOME, on fedora-38, fedora-37, or debian-11 based AppVM no longer works.

What used to work was copying the org.gnome.Nautilus.desktop file from /usr/share/applications to ~/.config/autostart but after moving into fedora-37 sometime ago it doesn’t work anymore.

Anyone got any ideas to make this automatically startup when an AppVM turns on?

Found the solution. It was too simple to ask even but here it goes.

cp /usr/share/applications/qubes-open-file-manager.desktop ~/.config/autostart
