    Been looking around on how to do this properly on ubuntu desktop 8.04.

    Is there anyone who can help me with trying to get this to work?

    Cheers,

    Anyone?

    57 views ... and no one has a clue? wow...

    I know that manually I can run ventrilo server on my Ubuntu Desktop. I simply would like it to autorun at startup so I don't have to manually do it.

    I know running as a daemon is possible but not sure on how to do it. Also, since this is a desktop I have to run sudo command for it to properly work.

    Any help or if there's a howto that addresses this would be great but so far, I've not been successful in finding one

    Good Suggestion however....

    Hello Falko,

    Hope all is good with you.

    Actually, I know this works fine for gui based applications flawlessly however, ventrilo and teamspeak server edition howto's I've found are command base.

    For example, to get into ventrilo, I would need to open a terminal session and then go to the install path where ventrilo resides and then run sudo command from the terminal session.

    Ventrilo Setup:
    http://www.ventrilo.com/setup.php#Server_Installing

    Step 10:
    e.g.: "sudo ./ventrilo_srv"

    I do not want to keep doing this. I would simply like to have it run automatically when Ubuntu Desktop is running.

    You can add the command at the end of /etc/rc.local.

    Hello Falko,

    Yes, that would work however, how would I address the fact that since I need to perform a sudo command for this, I will be prompted for password to let it run.

    Is there a way to allow this to work without the need of using sudo command?

    The commands from /etc/rc.local are run as root, so you don't need sudo.
