<SOLVED> How to choose autostart programs

Postby pfeiffep on Tue Apr 23, 2013 11:02 pm

Hello all. I just installed Linux Mint Cinamon 32 bit :) .
I've performed all the apt-get routines, loaded preload, chromium, bleachbit, and viking; configured my network printer.
I am unable to find how to choose my hidden startup programs. :?:

Hardware:
Dell inspiron 6000
Intel Celeron 1.5 Ghz
2 Gb ram
Internal hdd 40 GB (Ubuntu 13.04)
USB hdd 40 GB (Linux Mint 14)

TIA
Pete

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Code: Select all
sudo sed -i 's/NoDisplay=true/NoDisplay=false/g' /etc/xdg/autostart/*.desktop
