What happens if you open a LXterminal window and run sudo /etc/rc.local or sudo bash -x /etc/rc.local to get lots of debugging messages?

There's your error on line #23.

Look at the output from running sudo bash -x /etc/rc.local again in detail.

You've been using a windows editor or something. It has changed the line endings from just a newline (NL = "\n") to CRNL ("\r\n") instead.

Try stripping out the unwanted CR characters. You can do this by installing the dos2unix package and running

Code: Select all

sudo dos2unix /etc/rc.local
or use something like sed to edit it

Code: Select all

sudo sed -i "s/\r//" /etc/rc.local
