I googled and all solutions involve root access. Even user jobs in ~/.init require you to first edit some system settings file as root. Is there a userspace solution?

    Have you tried @reboot /path/to/program in your crontab ? You can edit crontab with crontab -e – Soren A May 27 at 8:57

Assign new cron task, add @reboot parameter to your script/command make it executed once on bootup.

crontab -e

Then, add the cron command.

@reboot /path/to/your/program

Where /path/to/your/program is your desired script/command.

Note that this does not required root access
