Applications startup in Ubuntu 12.04

Asked by Alejandro Padrino on 2012-06-22

Hello, I want to run automatically one program or application (for example, /bin/bash) at Ubuntu startup. This feature fails in previous Ubuntu releases, and also in Ubuntu 12.04. I try it today. Restarting Ubuntu does not run bash. Any way to do?

Thank you.

You can go to startup application and add the entry of the application there.

Search dash for: startup

you can make any application run at login using that.

I was add the entry, but does not launch bash at startup.

why do you want to launch bash at startup?

Alejandro Padrino (eb4bgr) said : #5

Bash is for testing (I love console). But putting some application on Ubuntu starting can be useful for some purposes.

Thenrun:

gnome-terminal

not bash.

Thank you, it runs with gnome-terminal. But, when I want to run "myprogram", what to do?

gnome-open "myprogram" ???

just add the 'myprogram' to the list, if it needs to be ran in terminal then add:

gnome-terminal -x myprogram

Should do it
