Privoxy doesn't start at boot


It does work, but I have to manually start it at the command prompt,

Quote:
sudo /etc/init.d/privoxy start
I know the answer to this is simple, so I posted it in the newbie section.

The question.... How do I get it to start automatically at boot?

Hi.

Something like this would work on my Fedora box:

Code:
sudo chkconfig --level 35 privoxy on
I'm pretty sure it will work on Ubuntu too.


Regards,
kenneho

Install 'sysv-rc-conf' package on your Ubuntu box using 'apt'.

This gives an easy to use interface for managing "/etc/rc{run‐level}.d/" symlinks.
