Re: synaptiks will not auto start at login
Here's the solution I employed and my problem was exactly as you stated in your original post.

Next open up start up applications and click on the add button. In the pop up window name your start up application I named mine Synaptiks Start.
chmod +x start_synaptiks.sh
In the command field enter the path to the script you wrote earlier in my case it reads /home/david/start_synaptiks.sh
The last field give a description of your start up, then click the save button. Make sure the check box next to your new start up is selected and click close.
Note if there is another synaptiks entry you may want to uncheck it as this should take care of everything.
Some visual aids. I also have another easy script for a key combo to turn off the touchpad, if your interested let me know.
