sudo firestarter


I have firestarter (or any program for that matter that needs root privelages to start) set to start at login. I get the event message, "root privelages needed to run firestarter" at boot up. I've gone to the firestarter website for help and it tells me to edit as root /etc/sudoers via visudo by adding the following line:

username ALL= NOPASSWD: /usr/sbin/firestarter

I've of course replaced "username" with my actual username. I still get the error message at login. Any ideas as to what is happening here?

Thanks Much,
