I'm trying to get Octave to start, automatically, when I boot my computer. There are tons of tutorials that explain how to autostart programs in Linux, but none of them seem to work.
I'm using Lubuntu 14.0.4. I've gotten Octave to show up under the "Autostart" tab in Menu -> Preferences -> Default applications for LXSession. It shows up there, and "GNU Octave" is checked, but it won't startup when I boot the computer.
I've also tried modifying my /etc/xdg/lxsession/Lubuntu/autostart file. I've tried putting a bash file in there, as one person suggested. I've also tried putting "@octave" in there, which also doesn't work.
I've tried other things, too, (I've begun to lose track). I'm mostly interested in finding out if anyone has actually been able to get octave to autostart on Lubuntu 14.0.4. If you have, then I'd love to know how you did it.
I think my biggest problem, with all of the tutorials, is that they appear to be a bit old.
Anyway, if anyone's gotten this to work, I'd love to know what you did. Thanks for your time.
