With QGIS 3.6.2 on Ubuntu 18.04 I can't get the startup.py file to execute. Checked the docs and default folders with QStandardPaths.standardLocations(QStandardPaths.AppDataLocation) and added the startup into the final folder /home/jaume/.local/share/QGIS/QGIS3/profiles/default/python nothing happens. The test code I want to execute is:

f = open("/home/jaume/aaa.txt","w+")
f.write("This is a line")

I've tryed other silly code, added execution permissions, tested that this code runs in the python3 console, etc. Nothing happens. Any advice?

C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\QGIS\QGIS3, check this in your case I think is
