So I've got a bit of an issue trying to get qBittorrent to start on boot. I'm running 16.04.

I've tried to start it by using a crontab @reboot, but this unfortunately didn't work. Any ideas on how to get this to work?

Click on Startup Application Icon

Click on the add button: Example picture

Fill the simple startup program form indicating the explicit path of the qBittorrent application (just the way you run it from terminal):
