don't bother with rc.local it doesn't always work and its hard to figure

I'm not sure if any scripts work here but the standard Linux desktop 
files work e.g. a file something like this:

[Desktop Entry]

You can copy/paste an existing desktop file into here and it should 
work.  Also have a look around your system settings for startup 
applications, if you have that (I think the newer Pi OS' do) then just 
use the GUI to do it.
