I currently have a GUI app that needs to run as root.  I want to set the icon/shortcut/alias to execute the whole sudo /applications/ automatically when I click on it, rather than going into terminal each time and typing the whole thing out...  How can I do this?



Mac mini, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), 2.3 GHz i7 16GB 1600 DDR3
