This question already has an answer here:

I've installed System Load Indicator and set 'autostart' in preferences. For some reason it doesn't load at starting system.

How to find out the name/command of this application and then I can add it to "Startup Applications Preferences"? Thanks.

  • You're talking about System Monitor - standard application in ubuntu, but I'm talking about System Load Indicator - it's a indicator in panel. – megas Sep 14 '11 at 18:44

  • Oh cool :) Glad it worked out okay :) – Nitin Venkatesh Sep 14 '11 at 19:06
  • For Ubuntu 13.04 you can open the StartUp application typing it on the dash. Because there is no MainMenu app, and it isn't in the top right gear neither.. – Lucio May 17 '13 at 22:49
