@Benny Hey! I suppose it's because systemd services are preferred now. I found this relevant article and, from what I understand, rc.local, while deprecated, still works, but not exactly as before. Now a generator exits that converts the commands in rc.local to systemd services. So you are actually running systemd services.
Please correct me if I'm wrong.
 
7:54 AM
@BeastOfCaerbannog is there a quick way to send you a message to come clean my answers? ROFL
 
wheels over the bunny signal
 
8:09 AM
good morning people.
 
@Benny I think they went over to upstart in between too
 
@David Hahaha! You can ping me here if you need any help!
@nobody Good morning!
 
8:24 AM
did you not see the ROFL at the end?
 
I have sometimes the feeling nowone reads terminaloutputs carefully.
 
you expect them to READ!!!!!
 
yes, of course.
 
Since they can not even type the title of the question into google you expect too much
 
8:43 AM
That's okay for me. But when my system tells me you try to remove essential packages from your system, then it is time to stop the destructive command.
 
9:07 AM
they know better "P
 
@David I did, but I thought that replying with humor could be misinterpreted, so I used a more literal reply. Usually, I don't use too much humor here, since due to the chatting's nature and the language barrier things can be very easily misinterpreted and lead to misunderstandings, which is something I don't want.
You can however make a deposit in my PayPal account whenever you want me to clean something and I will get notified!

lol I agree text can be misunderstood
any way I have never used any of the formatting stuff guess I need to learn how to.
 
@David This is a good starting point.
 
link saved in Ubuntu folder
 
However, there are many things that can only be learned by editing and seeing how other people edit posts.
 
9:21 AM
true of everything I was an educator for about 15 years
 
If you want to edit something and are unsure how to do it, feel free to ask about it in Raiders of the Lost Downboat.

No site sighing just lots of airports and hotels.
 
@David Sorry, I went to grub my lunch.
 
I was outside chopping wood never noticed
 
What was your main profession?
@David :)
 
The thing I did the longest was the training but spent from 1974 till 11 years ago doing something computer related
Worked as a consultant for Novell IBM Microsoft and Cisco to name a few.
 
@BeastOfCaerbannog grab*
@David That's really nice!
 
11:24 AM
it was nice for a while
but that was another life
retirement brought me a whole different life.
 
I hope better
 
11:42 AM
very very different
From big city life to a some what primitive rural life.

These we should answer all questions all OS guys are driving me crazy.
 
2:39 PM
@David What do you mean?
 
Even though I enjoy trying to help on Ask Ubuntu it has been pointed out to me that I do not have appear to have the right temperament and should no longer do so. As a result I will read the questions but not interact in any way with them.
@BeastOfCaerbannog people answering clearly off topic and encouraging further off topic questions.
 
@David From what I recall, no one has said that you shouldn't help nor that you don't have the right temperament, but that you (and everyone really) should be extra careful about the way that you point out the mistakes of someone or request info from them. No one should be offended after all, and as I said before, it's easy to misunderstand someone or their intention when online.
@David Hmmm. Can you give an example?
 
I could but i dont think I will but thanks
 
OK then.

Thanks, @BeastOfCaerbannog, appreciated.
@Zanna hi :)
What is the best way to run a single command on each reboot? since rc.local no supported
Thanks
 
@Benny hi!
@Benny I think it depends on the command
depends on when it needs to be run
 
hm
I have user with no-password, and I am using
 
I think you can use cron, or you can make a systemd service, or you can put it into ~/.profile
 
sudo su - USERNAME COMMAND
I am using rc.local and it works fine.
But I was needed to enable the rc.local to be supported, So I wonder if I should use a different way.
 
hmm what's the purpose of that? You want to log in as a different user on startup?
@Benny if enabling rc.local works for your purpose, that seems fine to me...
 
4:12 PM
I am running a program on each system startup
yes. it's fine.
 
idk why rc.local is disabled by default these days
 
since 16.10
 
maybe that's a good question for the site :)
yeah, I vaguely recall
 
Ok, thanks a lot @Zanna :) Have a great day
 
for my purpose I started using sysfsutils instead
I actually saw it in a little lecture I attended... not many people seem to know about it
but it's only for specific things - kernel settings
@Benny you too :)
 
4:17 PM
thanks :)

@Benny what I understand from what I have read is that rc.local still works, but the commands in it now get converted to systemd services. I suppose it is disabled by default in order to discourage its use and encourage the use of systemd services. Perhaps it will be completely removed in the future. As Zanna said however, since it works for your purpose, there is no point in making your life harder and not using it.
