If I go to Settings, Applications, Startup, all I see is:
I remember I had added a few startup scripts (conky etc) and applications (xbindkeys) but I cannot see them there.
I think they were added with a different tool or something.

The tool I used is
gnome-session-properties (of the
gnome-session-bin package, installed by default)
To launch it I had created a desktop file like so:
[Desktop Entry] Type=Application Name=StartupApps Comment=View apps starting with the system GenericName=Startup Applications Icon=preferences-system Terminal=false Categories=Gnome;Gtk;System; Exec=gnome-session-properties
It has edit option.
But it seems that for security reasons in Freya stable the default startup options which were accessible in Freya beta with this tool (see here, from this older answer (that I had forgotten about!)) are now hidden, and only the new custom options are visible.
In Loki ' Settings, Applications, Startup' shows the same items as
But the latter still has the advantage of providing an option to edit the entries (in the former one has to remove and add again an entry in order to modify it).
A cool feature in both tools is the possibility to use drag&drop of application launcher files (the kind of
.desktop files found in the
applications folders) onto the window in order to add new startup items. Only such files can be added in this way, not scripts; in order to add scripts, you have to use the 'Add' option.
