How to run TorGuard with root privileges on startup/login? (Ubuntu)

Rate this question




I am running Ubuntu (Kubuntu 14.04). I would like TorGuard to start automatically on login. I have a Bash script that runs on login and starts various things, so I put a command in there to start TorGuard. 


The problem is that TorGuard pops up and asks for my root password. I would like TorGuard to start silently without my having to input root password. What is a nice way to do this?


Thanks in advance! :) 


Best regards

You could try using Sudo but in the following way to prevent the prompt for the password:


echo 'password' | sudo -S command


This will leave your password within the bash history though, just so you know but its the only way i can see that will work.
