I would like Google Music Manager to launch at startup. I cannot find a way to accomplish this. Anyone have help?

In the command field browse to File System -> opt -> google -> musicmanager -> google-musicmanager. Populating the field manually does not seem to work, so important to browse to location. (This works under GNOME fallback.)

The answer depends on the desktop environment you are using.


In the dash, search for "Startup Applications"


System -> Preferences -> Startup Applications


Menu -> Settings Manager -> System | Session and Startup -> Application Autostart

When I try to launch google-musicmanager in cli, I get an error log4cxx: No appender could be found for logger (root). log4cxx: Please initialize the log4cxx system properly. Won't that fault the launch at startup? – M. Hudson May 9 '13 at 19:12
