Thread: rc.local (linux-kubuntu)

    Default rc.local (linux-kubuntu)

    How would I go about adding commands to the rc.local file? The command I want to add is "synclient MaxTapTime=0", which disables tapping on the laptop's touchpad. Here's what the file currently looks like...

    #! /bin/sh
    [ -f /etc/default/rcS ] && . /etc/default/rcS
    . /lib/lsb/init-functions
    do_start() {
        if [ -x /etc/rc.local ]; then
            log_begin_msg "Running local boot scripts (/etc/rc.local)"
            log_end_msg $?
    case "$1" in
            echo "Error: argument '$1' not supported" >&2
            exit 3
            echo "Usage: $0 start|stop" >&2
            exit 3
    Where would I put the command I want it to run at startup?

    Hi octopussy,

    What's the path for the file you posted above? I don't think it's /etc/rc.local, is it?

    The path is /etc/init.d/rc.local. I want the system to do "synclient MaxTapTime=0" at login or startup, that's all.
