Default Autostart applications at login
Seems there is not yet an LXDE control panel feature for designating an application to launch at login.

There are a couple of methods for configuring this manually from the command line. I find the most straightforward one to be the first one detailed in the Arch linux LXDE wiki entry. https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php...start_Programs

---------Here's the relevant excerpt-----------------

First you can link a program's .desktop in
/usr/share/applications/ file to
~/.config/autostart/. For example, to execute lxterminal automatically at
startup:
$ ln -s /usr/share/applications/lxterminal.desktop ~/.config/autostart/

-------------------------------------------------

You can usually find the .desktop file of the application you want to link for launching at this path /usr/home/<username>/.local/share/applications/

For this needs I went to the folder:
/usr/local/share/pcbsd/xstartup/

Created an autostart.sh script and listed the commands I want to start automatically with my X sessions, like yakuake and thunderbird

This directory also contains shell scripts for starting life preserver, net monitor, mount tray etc.

I disabled my wireless device but still got annoying notifications upon logging into LXDE. Some minor modifications to the net-trays.sh scripts solved this issue.

A GUI for managing autostarted apps would be nice.
