I installed some applications using Wine in my Ubuntu 14.04. I need some of that applications to run at system start up. One such application is NetWorx(an application to measure bandwidth usage). How can I do it ?


I need to run the application in the User account too. Is that possible ? If yes, how ? If no, why ?


Its 100% possible. You just need to open Startup Applications and add a new startup program. The command will be something like wine "/home/$user/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/you/program.exe"

Replace $user with your username.

For example if I wanted to run IE at startup it would be something like:
wine "/home/dakota/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Internet Explorer/iexplore.exe"

Make sure to keep the quotation marks in the command or it will not work.
