How to autostart BT Sync on Ubuntu 13.04
I am trying to get my BT Sync application to auto start when I turn on my computer, which is what is does under Windows but I have now moved over the Ubuntu 13.04, which is a very good O/S.
Now I have tried the 'Startup Applications' and added the BT Sync executable file into a new entry, however when I go to load the Web GUI, I find that BT Sync has not started, if I load it from the terminal, it will fork to desktop or states something like that, and then works.
I have also found the following guide,
What I would love to know is it safe to do what this guide is laying out, becuase there is no .desktop file for this application, so do I just make one? I have seem a number of guides on how to do this, so it should not be a big issue.
One last thing the BT Sync file does not end in .sh or anything, is that normal for applications? I always thought that they had to end in a file that the system could load or have I just installed it wrong?
P.S I did post this message on super user but only got 18 people to view the post and no reply's or comments, I hope this forum can be more helpful...
