I've followed many tutorials on how to do this now but none seemed to have done anything.
The way I'm currently trying is having a script in /etc/init.d/test
The script in that is as follows:
Code: Select all
#! /bin/sh # /etc/init.d/test ### BEGIN INIT INFO # Provides: noip # Required-Start: $remote_fs $syslog # Required-Stop: $remote_fs $syslog # Default-Start: 2 3 4 5 # Default-Stop: 0 1 6 # Short-Description: Simple script to start a program at boot # Description: A simple script which will start / stop a program a boot /$ ### END INIT INFO # If you want a command to always run, put it here # Carry out specific functions when asked to by the system case "$1" in start) echo "Hello!" sleep 10s sudo python /home/pi/Desktop/Projects/test.py ;; stop) ;; *) echo "Bye!" sleep 10s killall python exit 1 ;; esac exit 0
When I run the command:
sudo /etc/init.d/test start
Everything runs as expected with the 10 second pause and then it runs the python script.
When I reboot it just runs though all the normal lines of code(or what ever all the writing is) and goes to the desktop. Why might the script not be running?
