How to configure Startup Applications in Linux Mint 12 running Cinnamon

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

Go to MenuPreferencesStartup 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.
