Today I will show you how to configure startup applications in Ubuntu 12.04.
On your desktop go to settings (cog in the top right of the screen) and click on Startup Applications.
You will be shown a list of all the programs that are configured to start at boot time. Click on Add.
For the purpose of this tutorial I will configure Libreoffice to start at boot. In the screen shot above I have configured the following:
Name – Libreoffice
Command – /usr/bin/libreoffice (all programs are stored in /usr/bin so use this command)
Comment – Office Suite
Once configured click Add.
Restart the system and your chosen program with start at boot.
