Running commands and programs on startup in Ubuntu

This article was been published more than a year ago. The information may be outdated.

In a previous post, I showed you how to disable the Caps Lock key in Ubuntu. The problem with this method is of course that it only lasts for the duration of your current session. To resolve this problem, you need to have the command run automatically at startup.
Here’s how:

  1. Go to System > Preferences > Sessions
  2. Find the Startup programs tab
  3. Click Add
  4. Enter the command

Note: You can use this method to start any programs, such as Pidgin, Console etc. at startup. To do this, you’ll need to find the command to run it, and follow the above instructions.
