Well, I'm thinking that you're using the lxde desktop (Lubuntu) but maybe you're using Unity or Metacity or Compiz (Ubuntu). If you're using lxde, you can add startup items in the following fashion in 14.04 (might work in 12.04 but I've never used it, sorry): Open the menu (the super [windows] key opens it in Ubuntu), click on Preferences > Default ...

The command echo 'test' >> sudo /tmp/unicorn is the same as echo 'test' /tmp/unicorn >> sudo so it appends the line test /tmp/unicorn to the file sudo in the current folder. If you want to append test to the file /tmp/unicorn using root privileges you should use echo 'test' | sudo tee -a /tmp/unicorn instead. As /etc/rc.local is ...

I am far from an expert on the topic but given that no one with more knowledge on it has answered I will try to provide a very rough idea to you. As far as I understand "lens" is the generic term for the search functionality of the Ubuntu Dash (Dash being the thing that appears when you click the upper-left corner in the default installation). So, you can ...

I figured it out with the help of a number of random threads/questions around this site and the web with different but related issues. Enter the following in the terminal (without quotes, and with your username): sudo chown "yourusername":"yourusername" -R ~/.config Use of sudo will prompt you for your password. Enter it (the terminal won't show ...

I experienced this problem too. A 32 bit install of Lubuntu 14.10 on my HP Probook 5310, via a USB stick prepared with UNetbootin, was fine, but when I tried a 64bit install on the same machine, after an apparently straightforward and successful install process, I was left with a black screen on attempting reboot. I tried various solutions, but without ...

Short Answer: First of all, the mystery application to which that particular startup service belongs, is screen, which you may have installed separately, or it may have come as part of byobu terminal multiplexer. Is it safe to disable? Basically, yes, but you won't be able to use screen. You can, however, still use byobu. I currently have it disabled, and ...

While writing this Question up, I decided that 'sudo find / -name deluge' wasn't good enough, so I ran sudo find / -name deluge* where I notice that for some reason Deluge had left two startup scripts in /etc/init/, deluged.conf as well as one for deluge web, deluge-web.conf A quick sudo rm deluged && sudo rm deluge-web took care of it quite nicely. ...

You need to do that on the fly. /var/run/ is a tmpfs so recreated each boot. From the init script: Create a directory inside /var/run/ and change permissions to that user. Then specify to use /var/run/mydaemon rather than /var/run. If you want examples on how to do this check (there are more): /etc/init.d/ssh /etc/init.d/bind9 /etc/init/dbus.conf ...

After a long research, I eventually found this. According to the thread, there is a bug in the USB installer that prevents 64-bit systems from being installable (on some machines?). I installed a 32-bit Ubuntu there and the problem didn't appear anymore. This can be an imperfect workaround, but the laptop has just 4 GiB RAM and it doesn't matter much in ...

Since the script works for you when you login as root, something must be set in the user's rc files. The .profile and .bashrc look innocent, but it could be somewhere else, in .bash_profile, or /etc/profile, or in some script in /etc/profile.d. So we can try telling sudo to run the command in a login shell using -i (or --login): sudo -i /path/to/perl/script ...

Done

I'm using ubuntu Gnome and do not seem to have gnome-session-properties. Instead I found you can use the gnome-tweak-tool and there is a section for startup programs in there.

None of the other solutions worked for me in Gnome 3.14 on Gnome Ubuntu 14.10. What finally worked was creating .desktop files by hand. First, make the folder ~/.config/autostart/ if it doesnt exist. Then create a ~/.config/autostart/my-app-to-startup.desktop file for each program you want to start on login. For example, here's what my ...
