How can I make GrowlTunes start automatically when either Growl or OSX does?

Another, possibly quicker way, is to drag it into your dock (if not already there), then right-click it, go to Options>Open at Login. Then drag it out of your dock if you don't want it to stay in your dock.

Go to Preferences -> Accounts -> Select your account -> Select the "Login Items" button or tab (not sure what I would call it!) -> Then press the + sign to add a new start up item and select GrowlTunes.

Drag and drop is also supported in this area if you like. Just drag from Finder into System Preference's "Login Items" once you're there. – Randy6T9 Feb 4 '11 at 0:00
