HI,

I can start UQLX as soon as the Linux box boots up.

Can UQLX be altered so that it takes control of the the whole operating system, sort of a integration into the Linux Kernel.


Regards,

Derek

Yes, it's possible to autostart it

Actually that's not quite right; you need to autostart X first and your desktop and then start it there. However assuming a uQLx with SDL (which I want to do based on the uqlx-fork with the started sdl work) starting uQLx would be as easy as editing your rc.local file like so

Code: Select all

sudo nano /etc/rc.local

and then entering the uQLx path-to-and-executable before saving
