Always, when I want to add an application to startup, I use system monitor to find run-command and then add it to startup. But in Nitrotaks case the run-command is "/usr/bin/python/opt/nitro/bin/nitrotasks" and when I add it, doesn’t work. I've checked "nitrotasks" too. What do you suggest me ?

To add an application to start-up applications, just type start in Dash, and click on Startup Applications.

Once you click on it, and the new window opens, click on add to add you desired application.

A window will open asking for the apps info. Once you're done filling out all the information, click on Add, and you're done.

I did these steps but I don't know what is run-command for Nitro. Can you guide me how to browse an app ? – Sina Apr 16 '13 at 8:13
The command to run it is: /usr/bin/nitrotasks I just installed nitro tasks, and used the same command, rebooted, and it worked. – Mitch Apr 16 '13 at 8:29
the result is disappointing. /usr/bin/nitrotasks: No such file or directory – Sina Apr 16 '13 at 8:47
How did you install it? – Mitch Apr 16 '13 at 8:48
I've installed it from terminal. Try it that way, and see. – Mitch Apr 16 '13 at 10:02

If you can start it from command line, try which nitrotasks. It should show you the install path. Then follow Mitch's steps
