How do I run at startup on Linux Mint/Xfce?

Postby mrdm » Mon Apr 18, 2016 11:53 pm

How do I get the server running at startup on Linux Mint/Xfce?

I tried using the Session Startup and that didn't work (http://www.linux.com/learn/tutorials/89 ... d-on-linux)

And I tried the suggestions in the ubuntu startup thread in this forum:

edit the file /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf and add the line: greeter-setup-script=/usr/bin/startdm.sh
restart your machine


and

sudo emacs /etc/rc.local


still no auto startup --- everything else works.

How to start the server at boot time: (you can use also an alternative configuration, but you must start droidmote after X11)

get root permission with sudo su
copy droidmote to /usr/bin
chmod 777 /usr/bin/droidmote
create a shell script startdm.sh in /usr/bin

-----------------------------
the content of startdm.sh is:
#!/bin/sh
droidmote 2302 password &
-----------------------------

chmod +x /usr/bin/startdm.sh
edit the file /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf and add the line: greeter-setup-script=/usr/bin/startdm.sh
restart your machine
