TwonkyVision install (auto start) in Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty)

Post by MagicFab » Sat Aug 04, 2007 9:01 am

Hi,

I have reviewed the install how-to document included in the manual install package for Linux. Everything looks like it will work as-is under Ubuntu Feisty except there is no information on how to make it autostart. I am contributing this so anyone can try it and comment ont heir experience.

Assuming you extracted twonkymedia to /usr/local/TwonkyVision,:
1) cd /etc/init.d
2) sudo ln -s /usr/local/TwonkyVision/twonkymedia.sh
3) sudo update-rc.d /usr/local/TwonkyVision/twonkymedia.sh defaults

update-rc.d is used to update script. To find out more about it, issue the "man update-rc.d" command from a terminal window.

You also have to make sure the script file /usr/local/TwonkyVision/twonkymedia.sh has execution rights, by using
$ sudo chmod +x /usr/local/TwonkyVision/twonkymedia.sh

Thanks for any comments or suggestions on improving this.

Actually, your step 3 needs to be:

sudo update-rc.d twonkymedia.sh defaults

:D
