Linux noob can't work out how to run at startup?

0

Not an issue with the programme as such, I just want it to run automatically when I boot up my machine, and can't work out how to do so. If you've got the time, a step by step would be awesome!
Cheers,

Which Linux distribution do you use?

Temporal relations are not necessarily causal relations.

You could add the networktablet daemon to session startup:

Yeah I tried that - couldn't get it to work as gfxtablet needs to be run as root.

You would have to create a new system group, for instance "uinput", and grant access for members of that group. Then add your user (= the user who runs networktablet) to this group and you will get access without being root. (There are easier solutions like giving setuid to networktablet but this would be too dangerous for real use.)

I'm sorry that I don't have the time to give you detailled instructions, but you can find more about this topic here:
