Services not autostarting

I've installed a few programs from source, sickbeard, couchpotato and maraschino. I followed their instructions for configuring them and having them start at boot.

Everything works, except they are not starting. Their scripts are at /etc/init.d/ and I can do service sickbeard start, stop, restart, etc, but they won't start at boot.

I thought having their init scripts in /etc/init.d/ would have them start at boot?

You will need to use update-rc.d or chkconfig, depending on your distro to actually have them start, the scripts are in /etc/init.d , but to be executed at the apropriate runlevels you need to have S and K links to them in the apropriate /etc/rc<runlevel>.d directory.
