The humblest distributions are hitting hard on Ubuntu and in GNU / Linux, so desktops like lxde or distributions such as Lubuntu they are having more and more users. In these cases, resource reduction is based on doing more things by hand to reduce memory and CPU consumption.
Thus, configurations are loaded into the beginning or by profiles are rejected so that they are not loaded and the user can configure them to their liking.
Configure Startup applications in Lubuntu
In the case of Lubuntu, If we want to load a certain application we want to delete an application from the start we have to go to our Home, In our personal cape and search among the hidden files the .config folder, Then we put it in the folder lxsession, Here we look lxde and in this folder we look for the file autostart which we will open and edit.
When opening the file we will see a list of applications that start with the arrova, @. This tells the system that it is an application, so if we want it to load the Leafpad at the beginning we just have to put
below the list and so it will load at system startup. If we want to remove a certain application, we just need to delete the line.
Using terminal, we can open the file as follows
sudo nano /.config/lxsession/lubuntu/autostart
Uploading profiles, a practical application
This method is very simple and at the same time gives us an amazing game. The advantage of this system is that we can make a profile for each use we want. So we created a user that is multimedia, another that is internet and / or office, to give an example. Then we can edit the login of each user and add the corresponding applications, for example in the office profile we can write the following
This would load our word processor, spreadsheet and our personal folder in case we want to edit a file. So we can do it in different profiles, greatly accelerating the potential of our system. This does not mean that we can not use the web browser if we want to type in our word processor but that when choosing the profile what we do is load certain programs to speed up their loading. Of course, try not to make the list too long Lubuntu it can do wonders on our computers but not miracles and it may be that 20 applications will greatly slow down system startup.
