Now a box opens, Application is listed at the top, you can give it a name, next enter the command you want to run (including the sudo bit) next click on the icon, choose one that suits, click OK and you're done.
Now all you have to do to run the command is click on the button in the panel and enter your password.
This gives you the option of whether to run it or not.
Or to add it as a start-up item, in Mint Menu, Preferences > Startup Applications > Add and enter the command you want to run.
i just want to start it from boot automatically. even without logging in. just turn on computer, then, it's already shared.
It doesn't work in start up applications. i've tried it and doesn't work, that's why im here.
