Ubuntu – Can’t change startup programs in Startup Application Preferences


I opened and changed startup programs in Startup Application Preferences.
Then after reboot the preferences didn't change, they are the same as it was before.
Why I can't change nothing and how to really setup Startup Application Preferences? Thanks.
