I'm on 12.10 and I use Synergy to share my mouse between my laptop and desktop monitors. I tend to start the synergys daemon manually, but I'd like for it to start automatically after boot. Now I've found the answer for synergy in particular, but I'm left wondering what the standard way of adding startup services is.

What's the way to add such startup services nowadays? Is there a graphical tool to add and manage them?

Thanks a lot, that solved my issue with synergy, but I'd still like to get an answer for the general case. I've rephrased the question to reflect this. –  David Planella Jan 31 '13 at 9:51
