I’ve always loved to start programmes automatically. Just boot up the computer, maybe even log in automatically if it’s a desktop at home, and start all the programmes you need. It took me quite a while, but I figured out the one and only, perfect way to do that: *.desktop files. Let’s go to our applications folder, which should contain most of the *.desktop files responsible for your Applications menu. cd /usr/share/applications/ Let’s assume you want to autostart guake. Check for folder contents with ls or find the programme you want to auto start with ls | grep guake. Then, copy that file to your autostart folder.
