I am at wits-end and am close to giving up on this... All I want to do is run a python script at bootup with the Raspberry Pi, I will outline the few things that i've tried thus far:
Running the script from /etc/Profile. I used the exact script that the guy posted in his example and absolutely nothing happened. Just booted up to the normal desktop, did not open up a terminal or anything.
Running the script via CRON. Tried this as well and got the same results as number one.
What on earth are some possible things that could be wrong here? Some details I can provide are that somebody else monkeyed with the OS installed on the card before I started working with it, so is it possible that I'm being prevented from running anything at startup somehow?
I am running an "LXDE" environment, if that means anything to anyone?
I did everything in the following article and I ALMOST got it working.
The terminal showed up but my script did not run. The following is my script:
Nothing shows up in the terminal, not even the current user name (usually pi@raspberrypi).
