Hi, maybe is a lofi solution but works...need a cd...

I created an autorun cd on ubuntu...first create an empty file called
“autorun”and edit with gedit or wathever

zenity --info –text="you can put what you need or what you like"*

 This file must be in the root directory of cd, not in folders...then the
o.s check your permission and open the file...check...

 Best regards
