Is this in gnome? System -> Preferences -> Startup Applications

This is just a gui for the .desktop files in ~/.config/autostart

How do you normally start the program? I think it is called yakuake and is a kde program, right?

Chapter*4.*Autostarting Applications and Run-Once Applications :
Make Yakuake autostart:
Open up your home folder; make sure you can see your hidden files.
Navigate to the .kde/Autostart folder and create a new text file: yakuake.
Paste this in the file:
Start up your new Yakuake Terminal and press F12.
chmod +x yakuake
Next time you start Ubuntu Yakuake will be running. You just need to press F12 to access it.
