I have Ubuntu Desktop 12.04 LTS running great on an older Acer desktop. I want to use this machine as an in-home server for hosting Minecraft.
The command to start the Minecraft server is
java -Xmx1024M -Xms1024M -jar minecraft_server.jar nogui and that works great when I cd into the correct directory and execute the above.
I created a script to do this:
#!/bin/bash cd /home/myuser/minecraft-server1 java -Xmx1024M -Xms1024M -jar minecraft_server.jar nogui & cd /home/myuser/minecraft-server2 java -Xmx1024M -Xms1024M -jar minecraft_server.jar nogui & exit 0
I made this .sh file executable, and it too runs great when I start it manually from the terminal.
The problem I'm having is getting these to execute at startup. I have my user account on this machine to auto login.
I have tried the following:
- Adding the following to "Startup Applications" :
sh /home/myuser/myscript.sh(Nothing happens on reboot)
- Adding the same to /etc/rc.local (Nothing happens on reboot). I even tested this one by running
/etc/rc.localfrom the terminal, and it executed great. Just not at boot/auto login
- Added the lines from the script directly to rc.local (Nothing happens on reboot).
I can't help but think that there's something I'm missing. The script executes great when run manually, but will not run at boot/auto login.
Many thanks in advance.
