On 14.04 you can use dpkg-reconfigure to disable cloud-init in the following way: echo 'datasource_list: [ None ]' | sudo -s tee /etc/cloud/cloud.cfg.d/90_dpkg.cfg sudo dpkg-reconfigure -f noninteractive cloud-init or just use sudo dpkg-reconfigure cloud-init to do it interactively.

Generally this is not easy. Admin hack is to install some audit system to collect such things (e.g. http://superuser.com/questions/222912/how-can-i-log-all-process-launches-in-linux) or see package acct but then how do you determine if such and such line is the script you are seeking for. BTW why do you think it has run, was there some output?

According to this Ubuntu documentation, the default system shell in Ubuntu is Dash, instead of Bash, while the default login shell is Bash. The output of ls -al /bin/sh shows you whether /bin/sh is a symlink of Dash (most probable), or Bash. In my case it is Bash: lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4 Apr 8 2014 /bin/sh -> bash Dash will not be able to interpret echo ...

Unless you redirect the output, it will be printed on the screen during the boot process. The boot messages are supressed / hidden and go by fast. Remove the boot options quiet and splash to see the messages. See How can I show or hide boot messages when Ubuntu starts? for details. They should be in the logs, ( /var/log/messages ) and/or in dmesg

In my case I used the code highlighted by Oli above and then used the trust_server_cert option in the dav2fs config. Usefull when the server's certificate can't be verified or is even invalid, but you know that you can trust this certificate. So edit /etc/davfs2/davfs2.conf and add a line that looks like the following: ...

It seems that the first answer doesn't work in Ubuntu 14.10 anymore. This is how I do it there (put it in /etc/rc.local) su <username> - -c <command>

I've been suffering from the same problem. Searching for a solution I've found your question and also this bug report at Launchpad: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/kubuntu-driver-manager/+bug/1304598 . I've entered the Device Manager in the System Settings, as someone suggests there, but it hasn't worked. I've entered again and have it let run ...

Search in the Dash for startup and the menu for managing them will appear. No idea why they are gone from the gear-wheel menu.

Whether you will see the splash screen or not is determined by the parameter GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX in /etc/default/grub. If the word "splash" occurs in the command line, then you will see a splash screen, otherwise you won't. But in neither case does it indicate a problem.

You can add the line modprobe wacom to /etc/rc.local and it will get executed on boot with root privileges.

Maybe try using muru's suggestions as well as changing the start on stanza to runlevel [2345] vs started tty1. You could also probably get rid of the sleep in the pre-start then.

Using the sudo command, especially from a Live CD can do serious damage to your system. When pasting into the Terminal, use Ctrl+Shift+V, NOT Ctrl+V. Mount the partition your Ubuntu Installation is on. If you are not sure which it is, launch GParted (included in the Live CD) and find out. It is usually a EXT4 Partition. Replace the XY with the drive letter, ...

I am not sure what Syndeamon is or should do, but it could very well be that it is started too early, and crashes because the desktop is not fully loaded yet. What you can do is to add a small pause of 10-15 seconds to the start up command. To do that: Open the automatically created .desktop file in ~/.config/autostart (drag it over a gedit window) ...
