What applications do you want to start? –  Seth Jan 14 '13 at 15:58

First you need to know the command of the application you want to start. The command of the application is usually its name. For example, if you type firefox into a terminal it will start Firefox.

To make Firefox start on startup, open "Startup Applications" from the dash. Click 'Add' then fill out the 'Command' field with the command for the application, in this case firefox. The 'Name' and 'Comment' fields are optional.
