Re: Autostart Xastir on boot

Ray Wells

xastir won't start if ~/.xastir/ exists.

If xastir is not shut down correctly is not deleted hence, xastir won't restart.
Modify the script to delete

Try using a script:

save , then make executable 

sudo chmod +x

To test type: ./

Then: sudo nano /etc/rc.local

add:  /path/to/ 

Then reboot.

Or if using Arch Linux:

sudo systemctl enable xastir.service
