 The command you choose is ran after login has occured.  A great example of how to use this is demonstrated using synergy client to connect to a synergy server [Link].

To run a command at startup for Linux Mint 14 (KDE)

  1. Menu -> System Settings -> Startup & Shutdown -> Autostart
  2. Click: Add Program
  3. Type: synergyc 192.168.0.2

    * Note, the command in this example connects a syngery client to the host 192.168.0.2.

    1. where server name is likely your hostname.
