Startup programs

If you are like me, you don't want to have to click on Menu > Run and type in conky and press every time that you reboot. In Windows there is a folder called startup to add shortcuts to, in Linux I was lost.

Here is how to do it:

Open a terminal window
type in
gksudo leafpad /etc/xdg/lxsession/Peppermint_Ice/autostart
type in the root password
add the following line:
@conky
save the file and reboot

Now conky will autostart when you boot, you can add other things here as well.
