Question Autostart oscam server on Ubuntu

i'm having trouble to auto start my oscam server in Ubuntu. For the setup I followed this tutorial:

The tutorial is more for Gentoo linux but I got it working. If I manually start the oscam server everything works.

Furthermore I have found the following startup script for autostarting ubuntu on boot:

Note the oscam installation directory is different in the tutorial and the startup script (/opt/oscam versus /usr/bin/local/oscam).

I have tried changing the folder in the startup script and I have made a symlink from /opt/oscam to /usr/bin/local/oscam both are not working. Oscam is not starting.

For now I login with SSH, start a tmux session and then start oscam and detach tmux and exit ssh. This works but i'd rather have oscam start on boot. Anyone seeing what might be the problem or how to fix?

Let me know if you need more info!
