View Full Version : [SOLVED] Unity greeter startup script on Trusty Tahir?

April 21st, 2014, 05:40 PM
So what I want to do is run a script on startup that starts the synergy daemon. I want it to run automagically when the system starts in GUI mode even if no one actually logs in. I have a script for this but in the past it was run from /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d/50-unity-greeter.conf. This doesn't do the trick since I upgraded today to Trusty Tahir.

What is the Trusty Tahir equivalent to /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d/50-unity-greeter.conf ?

Update: The above is apparently the wrong question. It *is* launching but it drops dead whereas it did not before.

OK, I got it sorted out. On a hunch, I added a 5 second sleep to the script because this machine is so ridiculously fast (maxed memory, SSD, latest CPU, etc. ). This fixed the problem. Later I was able to narrow it down to 3 seconds.
