Enable services Ubuntu 14.04


I'm posting here since this is one of the few forums I've registered with. I've been searching for this and am unable to find anything that assists with these specific services.

I'm running MythBuntu 14.04. I picked Mythbuntu since I purchased a capture card from Haupauge, but since they shipped a new one without proper driver support, I've been unable to properly use it. So I installed VDR. Can't seem to locate good documentation for it so can't get it to do what Myth can. That's a different issue though. What I need is to get VDR to run on boot up. This is a headless box that primarily records and serves video. I've missed recording shows because I'll reboot the box and forget to make sure VDR starts.

Another service that doesn't autostart is PlexConnect. Yes, this is also a Plex server, that service starts, but Connect doesn't.

I've found lots of documentation that states how to disable existing services, but nothing on how to enable these specific ones. They either don't show up in the common apps, or show as set to auto start. I may have VDR setup to start, but haven't rebooted to verify yet.


Thank you for any assistance in this.

It used to be easy; then they invented upstart - seems devs are great believers in the 2nd law of thermodynamics. Have a read of the first section (down to "Traditional sysvinit") of this. It's old-ish but probably still valid (I haven't used Ubuntu in years).

Took a look at the link provided and it helped a little. I now know that Plexconnect installed all the rc scripts, but it doesn't seem to be setup right since it doesn't start on system startup. I'll need to look further into the log files since there is no Plexconnect folder in /var/log and nothing else i'm expecting. I just need to figure out which file the logs are written to in this version of Mythbuntu.
