    Nokia N9 Autorun

    I created file DataWatch.conf in directory /etc/init/apps for the app to lauch at startup, but the application does not autostart.

    The file content is:

    description "DataWatch demon startup script"
    author "me@gmail.com"
    stop on stopping xsession
    console none
    respawn
    respawn limit 3 300
    nice 2
    normal exit 0
    exec /usr/bin/aegis-exec -s -u user /opt/DataWatch/bin/DataWatch -background

    Also tried creating a script:
    #!/bin/sh
    /opt/DataWatch/bin/DataWatch -background
    in the directory "/etc/init.d"

    This didn't work either. What could be the problem?
    The files are created during the installation.
    Please, help!

    Re: Nokia N9 Autorun

    Hi,

    To start applications at upstart you need to give the aegis credentials.

    You need to update the manifest.aegis file, added by qtcreator if your are using QTSDK for development with -

    <aegis>
    <request>
    <credential name="GRP::upstart" />
    <credential name="UID::user" />
    <credential name="GID::users" />
    <for path="/opt/DataWatch/bin/DataWatch" />
    </request>
    </aegis>

    If you are using scratchbox for dev, please put this file in debian folder with the file name as <pkgname>.aegis

    Hope this helps.

    Re: Nokia N9 Autorun

    In your /etc/init/apps/<app>.conf script

    can you modify the last line (or the exec line to be as)

    exec /usr/bin/aegis-exec -s -u user -l "exec /opt/DataWatch/bin/DataWatch.sh"

    and add

    /opt/DataWatch/bin/DataWatch.sh
    -----------------
    #!/bin/sh
    echo "Start My App On Boot"
    exec /opt/DataWatch/bin/DataWatch
    -----------------

    Hope this helps

    Re: Nokia N9 Autorun

    The problem is solved:

    MyApp.desktop:

    description "MyApp startup script"
    author "MyApp"

    stop on stopping xsession

    console output
    respawn
    respawn limit 3 300
    normal exit 0

    exec /usr/bin/aegis-exec -s -u user -l "exec /opt/MyApp/bin/startup.sh"

    startup.sh:

    #!/bin/sh
    exec /opt/MyApp/bin/MyApp -background

    manifest.aegis:

    <aegis>
    <request>
    <credential name="UID::user" />
    <credential name="GID::users" />
    <for path="/opt/MyApp/bin/MyApp"/>
    </request>
    <request>
    <credential name="UID::user" />
    <credential name="GID::users" />
    <for path="/opt/MyApp/bin/startup.sh" />
    </request>
    </aegis>


    Thanks!
