I cannot find the Start-up Applications in 14.04, I read on a forum that you had to go into Main Menu and allow it to be visible through preferences, but I have looked all the way through preferences and I still haven't found it????

Thanks

Easiest method is to search for "start" in dash:

It is also possible to start it from command line, the command is gnome-session-properties:

  • @mchid mine still shows it when searching. Are you sure you are using Ubuntu with Unity? – Rinzwind Aug 1 '14 at 22:24

    It is possible that dash does not show it because of localization. You can always launch it from the dash with gnome-session-properties anyway, or try searching for 'startup' in your native language. – Wtower Oct 3 '14 at 7:44
