Hello Linux Geeksters.
In this article I will show you how to display all the aplications that run at boot (startup), with “Startup Applications”, the built-in utility that manages the startup programs.
By default, all the startup programs are hidden, so the Startup Application window is empty.
“Before the sed oneliner” “After the sed oneliner”
To get the hidden apps displayed, paste this sed oneliner in your terminal:
$ sudo sed -i 's/NoDisplay=true/NoDisplay=false/g' /etc/xdg/autostart/*.desktop
Now you can disable the programs you do not want to run at boot time.
