Console

To autostart programs in console you can use shell startup files/directories:

/etc/profile
/etc/profile.d/
/etc/profile.$SHELL
/etc/bash.bashrc
~/.bashrc
~/.bash_profile
~/.zshrc

Graphical

If you want to autostart programs automatically when you login into your WM (Window Manager) or DE (Desktop Environment), you should do the following:

GNOME, KDE and XFCE

You can put .desktop files in Template:Filename

Dedicated GUI

GNOME, KDE and XFCE all have a dedicated GUI for autostart settings.

KDE (Legacy)

KDE also has a specific folder: Template:Filename or Template:Filename

XFCE (Legacy)

In the Xfce versions prior to 4.4 the programs had to be located in Template:Filename
