I finally have gHamachi and the underlying Hamachi working on my Ubuntu setup. It mostly just worked, but was a pain in the arse at some points. Anyway, I realized that I didn’t know how to make things startup automatically in Ubuntu. In Windows, of course, you drop a shortcut to whatever you want running in the “Startup” folder under Start Menu->Programs->Startup. What’s the equivalent in Ubuntu (or Linux generally) for that matter?
According to the CompuTech Group, it looks like dropping something in /etc/init.d is the equivalent of the Windows Startup folder. Anyway, I hope I can get gHamachi and Pidgin to autostart upon login.
Here’s to tinkering…
