    Hi Everyone,

    I was wondering how could I run an application from gnome menu of applications with the root privileges, I know how to do it in KDE by editing the menu item but I can't find anything similar in Gnome,

    Also if possible, What is the best way u recommend for adding applications to the startup.

    Thanks in advance.

    Running an application with root permissions is not a good idea. IMHO a good menu system should be setup to make this difficult

    If you absolutely must run an application from gnome with root permissions, you can often do it with "gnomesu application" where the application is called 'application' in my example. You could modify your menu such that applications are launched that way.

    But please note, this is a really bad idea (in most cases).
