I've spent the night trying to figure out how to run a python script in a terminal at startup.
Adding it to init.d will run the script, but I don't see a terminal window or any other indication the script is running other than the audio output the python script produces. I would like to be able to see and interact with this script in a terminal just as if I'd ran it from a terminal.
My next successful step was to make a .desktop file in ~/.config/autostart. My Exec is
Exec=lxterminal -e "python ~/scripts/myscript.py"
When I log in, I see a terminal window flash for just a brief moment - but then disappear. No sound is produced from the python script so I assume it quit running. How do I start a terminal window at system startup and run a Python script in it?
