Running app on startup
Hello, guys!
I tried to run my C++ application on startup, without success. It runs, if I start it in terminal, but not accepted to run on startup.
I tried to run it as service, and tried run it from startup directory.
What is a right way to do it on Thinker board Debian?
Thank you.
Ok I found some way to run app on startup
1. In dir /etc/systemd/system write file startApp.service
2. Save file and Start Service: sudo service startApp start

==== file: startApp.service ============
Description=Start the Streamer app on system boot

Different from Raspberry @ Beagle Bone, here we need to specify
WorkingDirectory , User and path to binary file.

That's all.
Start Bash on Unbutu on Windows and run the following command to open the Nano program (text editor on Linux).
Nano program interface appears, proceed to edit the code for the program:

#include <stdio.h>
int main ()
      printf ("Hello World");
      return 0;
The interface of the program written in Nano will be as follows
After editing the program, use Ctrl + O (Write Out) to save the program.

Or if Ctrl + X (Exit Section), Nano will ask if you want to save or not?

Name the program file Text.c (must also set the file extension .c or .cpp) and save.
To execute Test.c we will compile Test.c into a file in .obj format. We exit the Nano program by pressing Ctrl + X and go back to the Linux console, where I use the following command to compile Test.c into Test.o (.o means .obj)

gcc -c Test.c -o Test.o
After compilation is complete, use the ls command to check which files exist in the current directory

Next, link Test.o to executable file (this file is similar to .exe file of Windows environment) with the following command

gcc -o program Test.o
With program is the name of the executable file I set.

After the link is complete, use the ls command to check the list of files present in the current directory.
Finally, to execute the program the program uses the following command
