System: Host: Mint-1-8200-Elite-CMT-PC Kernel: 4.10.0-42-generic x86_64 (64 bit gcc: 5.4.0)
Desktop: Cinnamon 3.6.7 (Gtk 3.18.9-1ubuntu3.3) dm: lightdm Distro: Linux Mint 18.3 Sylvia
Machine: System: Hewlett-Packard product: HP Compaq 8200 Elite CMT PC Chassis: type: 6

This is my most productive system, in 3 days it has produced 50% of my Windows 10
production of 2 weeks.

I have tried using startup applications window for including Boinc manager at startup.
But Boinc whines and says it can not connect. Ideas would be great. this is my 4th day using Linux.
thanks
Dale / Arctic

You don't need to change the Startup Applications. Running Mint 18.2 I did sudo apt install boinc-manager boinc-client, it installed, created sym. links in the various runlevels to start and stop. You can see status with, sudo systemctl status boinc-client
