I installed Firefly on my Ubuntu system. I think this was successful: if I type mt-daapd in a terminal session, Firefly starts up and I can then access my music collection in Rhythmbox, Banshee and even in iTunes on a Windows computer on the same network.
How did you install it, from a tarball, or a package.
If there is a file called “/etc/init.d/mt-daapd”, then you already have a startup script. As root, running “/etc/init.d/mt-daapd start” should start the server, and “/etc/init.d/mt-daapd stop” should stop the server.
If so, then you can just do something like:
[email protected]:~$ sudo update-rc.d mt-daapd defaults
… or I should say, that’s how one would do it on debian. I can only assume it’s the same with ubuntu.
If you don’t have a /etc/init.d/mt-daapd, then try saving this file as “mt-daapd” in /etc/init.d, and use the “update-rc.d” command above.
That shold get you blindly running.
