Thread: run a simple script at boot time

  1. #1

    Default run a simple script at boot time

    Hi
    I recently purchased phpdocx plugin to convert docx files which uses openoffice/libreoffice for conversion. They provided simple script to start headless openoffice server http://www.phpdocx.com/sites/default...s/OOService.sh .

    I can run the script manually but how I can make sure that it runs at boot time?

    Thanks

    Try this:

    From your SUSE menu, choose "Configure Desktop"

    Under "System Administration" group, choose "Startup and Shutdown"

    Top item (on left) is "Autostart", window is probably already showing.

    On the far right, click on the Add Script button, add the link to your script that way.

    Now, when you log in, the script will automatically run.

    I have a blog that allows you to activate the /etc/init.d/after.local where you could call your script, from where ever you placed it:

    systemd and using the after.local script in openSUSE 12.1 - Blogs - openSUSE Forums
