Currently I directly type the following command to bind static ip for eth0 via normal user.
$sudo ifconfig eth0:1

How do I run this command when boot Ubuntu without typing password?

You can put the command in rc.local file.

Open gedit with root access gksu gedit /etc/rc.local

Before the end line (exit 0), put your command without sudo


ifconfig eth0:1
exit 0
