Autostart Program in Lubuntu LXDE (on boot)

Ok, very new to Linux and used an old PC to install Lubuntu. I'm trying to get a program to run on boot, instead of when you login. Program being Synergy.

I've got it to the point it will run when you login by adding a line to the /etc/xdg/lxsession/Lubuntu/autostart file. Added "synergyc" and it works perfect.

So the main question is, how can I add that line somewhere, somehow to start on boot and not by login?

Any help would be appreciated.

HAHAHA...look at this. Being a newbie, I just found my own solution.

Open the terminal and type sudo gedit /etc/init.d/rc.local and add "synergyc <your ip address>" to the end of the file.
Save and close.

Reboot to test and it should work.
