"(that command does not look right; it requires .srcds_run to be a hidden file in the root directory; should it start with ./srcds_run ?)"
yes you are right. i have the code saved so i copy and past it to start my servers. and i was on my phone last night when i replied.
"@jmdennis1987: xterm is probably not the terminal you usually run and not as easy to use. Which Linux and/or desktop are you running? When we know that someone will be able to advise how to set up the autostart and which terminal emulator to start"
i run the latest version of suse and no i dont use xterm. i have that option. i use the one that sais terminal. it opens up to user joe@comcast which is the user i use to run my servers. so no root is required. hope that helps. thanks.
thanks both of you i am at work but as soon as i get a min ill go to the comp and do as you suggested.
one more thing. what text doc should i use and how should i save it? like do i put . sh at the end and save it in the desired dir?
thanks so much guys
ok im on my lunch and was playing around.
i saved both files as a ,sh and saved them inmy home dir. for user joe. the only user besides root.
i chmod -x them which i think need to be done. correct me if im wrong.
and it told me access was denied when i tryed to run them. am i going to need root user access? and where should i save the files that im creating?
and im looking around linux doesnt just have a start up area to place thing to start up. any help on that would be appreciated. thanks.
ok been playing some more.
what i did is opened terminal emulater
typed this code in and hit enter (xterm -e 'cd hlds/orangebox;./srcds_run -game tf +ip 10.1.10.70 -port 27015 +maxplayers 24 +map ctf_2fort sv_pure 1 -autoupdate)
and it opened a xterm and started my server. yay. thanks on the code guys.
so this is the code i need to have put into a script that will run on start up.
im lost on this.
xterm -e 'cd hlds/orangebox;./srcds_run -game tf +ip 10.1.10.70 -port 27015 +maxplayers 24 +map ctf_2fort sv_pure 1 -autoupdate'
so what i need to know now is how to write that in bash, or shell or what ever i need. then get that placed into the right dir and add it to the start up list of things.
thanks again everyone.
