The way I get applications to autostart now is different than it used to 
be... I am on 14.04 right now, and I think (if I remember right) it is 
the same..  So... right to it, then
Open your
Applications menu -> Preferences -> Default Applications for LXSession

Then go to your Autostart Tab (on the left)

And then I do
Disable autostarted applications? [config-only]
Manual autostarted applications

[Add] ubuntuone-launch

I add all the things I want autostarted here, such as
@synclient MaxTapTime=0
synapse -s
