Are you asking how lubuntu boots up?

You have to be more specific than "startup", what is it that you really want to accomplish?

There is a lot of things going on on "startup".

If you want to run some application when the computer starts up, then you can edit the /etc/rc.local script which is run by the OS after all the other drivers and servers are started. It is basically the Linux version of autoexec.bat.

sorry for the late response, what I meant to say, I wanted to find out how to make a program or script accessible anywhere from the o/s. I figured it out. I created a symbolic link to from program directory to /bin, then chmod +x. I was taking a intro to programming class taught in processing. After extracting the file, I was tired of navigating to the files directory just to run it. Funny thing now is I am using Puppy Linux, like it much better.

To accomplish the same task with custom scripts and applications I have added an additional entry to my PATH variable that points to my scripts directory, then placed that entry into my .bashtrc file so it is only available to the single user.

So, to have a direct references to ~/scripts I added "export PATH=$PATH:~/scripts" into ~/.bashrc
