Startup Applications Preferences

I'm adding additional startup programs, and I've found it most easy to just launch up the Process tab and type command (manually) from the Command Input Field. I just wish I could CTRL + C the selected field so I could CTRL + V into the Command input field in Startup Applications > Add > Command.

Command Input Field


You can use the xclip command. Then you can use the

ps aux | grep 'your specification' | xclip -selection clipboard

to copy the command in to the system clipboard.
Here is the xclip manual

Not sure about the Process Tab, but you could on a console type:

ps -C <command name> -ww -o args

This will print the full command line to the console and this can be copied.
