    Script to run the modeswitch command in boot

    Hi
    I am having one Huawei EC156 modem for my wireless broadband connection. Everytime when I boot the machine, I have to run the following commands in the terminal. The commands are as follows
    Code:
     cd /etc/usb_modeswitch.d
    followed by
    Code:
    sudo usb_modeswitch -I -W -c 12d1\:1505
    I would be very grateful if I can have a launcher which run this script automatically in terminal by clicking on it.

    Thanks in advance
