A few questons to resolve a few problems


I have Elyssa Linux Mint with a few problems to resolve......
I have loaded Firestarter to start when I boot up, but each time it asks me for my password. Can I get it to start without having to do this. I am the only one that uses this computer so no one is going to interfere with any settings.


Hope you can help with my dilemmas
Tony

Welcome to LQ.

If you want help, I suggest to title your question more specifically. Someone with the answer may just bypass your question.

I suggest to copy the startup script to rc.local. It should be located in /etc/init.d

Try using sudo.

The sudo command, which lets one execute a command as another user is what I think you might be looking for. As I understand it sudo would allow you to start Firestarter, an iptables front-end, at the launch of the operating system automatically. I wish that I could help further but I am merely a novice and can only recommend to you the Firestarter Problems on Bootup thread.

By the way, GNU/Linux Mint looks like an interesting Debian-based distribution, I was not previously aware of it.
