Today I will show you how to configure startup applications in Linux Mint 12 running the Cinnamon desktop.
Go to Menu – Preferences – 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.
