That menu isn't part of Linux.  It may exist in most mass market 
distributions, but it is a function of the window or session manager 
that you or they have selected.

Even with the relatively mass market Debian default desktop, it is done 
by Activities | Applications | Startup Application Preferences.  With 
less Windows (TM) like environments, you will need to edit an rc file.
