How to auto startup

For me this works:

Go system preferences, Accounts
then click on the user, then choose 'login items'

Add anything to the list using the + button, check mark toggle to have the
item start as hidden or visible.

This does not involve any alias files, but does require the admin password.

Hope this helps you.
