Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Ok well my problem is that I need to start a script on startup AFTER Xserver has booted... the reason for this is because synergyc (Synergy Client) wont run unless Xserver has already booted. I tried like 100 things on google to get the client to start automatically before userlogin, but nothing worked so i made my own walk around:
I made a simple script that starts synergy and I just dont know where I can place the script to run once the server has booted.
This is what i did:
1. I created my script under init.d called synergy-client-startup.sh
2. Then I made the script executable: sudo chmod +x /etc/init.d/synergy-client-startup.sh
4. Then I made it run on system boot: sudo update-rc.d synergy-client-startup.sh defaults
But when ubuntu boots it seems to load before a lot of things.. is there anyway I can maybe get this script to run LAST after everything else had ran for bootup?
p.s I tried to add a lot of detail. let me know if you need anything else to assist me!!
# This script is executed at the end of each multiuser runlevel.
# Make sure that the script will "exit 0" on success or any other
# value on error.
# In order to enable or disable this script just change the execution
depending on the distribution the filename and/or location can change
