Make apps autostart in Ubuntu

If you are  used to Windows then you are most likely familiar qith adding shortcuts to the Startup folder of the Start menu so the programm will automatically start after log in.

Ubuntu offers of course a nice utility to achieve the smae thing but it’s not named quite what you’d think, so you may not have found this.

You’ll find the tool on the System \ Preferences\ Sessions menu item:

session tool

 

just click the add button and type in the full path to the executable you are trying to start if it’s not in your path already. For example to let AMSN messenger  autostart you’d put in amsn into the textbox

    Autostart using BASH:

     

    $ sudo ln -s /etc/init.d/service_you_want_to_autostart /etc/rc5.d/S90service_name

     

    the S90 is arbitrary but it’s good to know what dependencies the service needs so you don’t try to autostart it before a dependency is started. But checking that is easy enough.
