[Solved] Execute script on startup

Hello.

I would like to execute a little script when linux starts or when the Desktop Environment starts. How could I do it?

Thank you.

Re: [Solved] Execute script on startup

Put the script in:

~/.config/autostart and make sure to chmod +x it.

Only if he runs a wm/de that actually executes that file.

Yep. If the OP doesn't clearly state his wm/de there can be 100s of answers. Like putting it in rc.local

Note: he says at Linux startup or de startup.

Re: [Solved] Execute script on startup

Ok, thanks to everybody. Finally I found another solution for my problem instead of executing a script every time I start linux. But I'll save your answers in case I want to do it in the future.

Thank you.

Re: [Solved] Execute script on startup

Here is how to autostart scripts:
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Create a new file in "/etc/systemd/system/" (e.g. script.service) and add the following contents:

[Unit]
Description=Script

[Service]
ExecStart=/usr/bin/script

[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target 

put your script in "/usr/bin/" and make sure to make it executable. and then enable the service.

$ sudo chmod 755 /usr/bin/script
$ sudo systemctl enable script.service

The next time yout restart the script should autostart

If you want the script to run without restarting, type:

$ sudo systemctl start script.service

Please do not necrobump, especially solved threads, and especially when the information is already well documented on the wiki.
