I'd follow these instructions How to run scripts on start up?

I think the easiest way is to figure out a terminal command that can run your program. Then from your dash search for startup applications. Click the add button. Copy the command where it says command and then save that.

I see no reason why you wouldn't. Startup applications just starts the program. If that program happens to have a GUI, then that should be what comes up. – ohnoplus Jul 31 '14 at 2:51
