I am trying to start xampp when the ubuntu starts on ubuntu 9.10. I tried going to system->preferences->startup applications adding it there, but it didn't work. I surmised it was because it needs to be started as root. I know you can make a startup script some how, but I'm not sure how to do it. How can I make it start xampp when the computer boots, even without logging in?
FYI, the command for starting it is
sudo /opt/lampp/lampp start
