I recently installed Lubuntu 14.04 on a Compaq nc6000 with 768MB of RAM and 80GB hard drive. I want to tweak Lubuntu for faster bootup (because it is slow). I watched a video on youtube, where the author suggested tweaking it from Startup Applications preferences. I couldn't locate it and I don't know how to "create it". I tried to follow the directions she suggested:

Inputting a command on the terminal:

sudo sed -i "s/NoDisplay=true/NoDisplay=false/g­" /etc/xdg/autostart/*.desktop

then hit Enter for changes to be applied.

but I can't open the startup applications preferences window because I don't know how to do it or create it on Lubuntu 14.04! She also suggested installing Preload from Software Center.
