Starting Gmote at startup on Linux

Gmote is a very cool android app that enables you to control your computer remotely using your Android based cell phone.

After installing it on your cell phone, you need to install the server version on the computer, you're trying to access remotely. The good thing about this app is that, it supports all the major operating systems. That is you won't be disappointed by this app if you're a Linux user.

After downloading this app on your computer, you need to extract it somewhere. Once extracted, on the terminal you have to move it to the corresponding directory and run the script. Just follow the wizard and you will be all set.

However, if you want to run this script at the startup it won't work, because this script cannot be ran from any other directory. You have to switch to that directory and then run the script. In order to do that follow the next steps:

  1. Create a text file called (gmote in my case) inside the directory which contains your extracted files, and paste the following code in it:
    • #!/bin/sh cd /home/USER/.gmote && ./
  2. Make this file executable:
    • chmod +x gmote
  3. On Gnome add this script to the startup applications from System-Preferences-Startup Application.

Log out and log back in and try to connect to your computer using your phone. It should be working :)

For the Linux server, once you extract the tar file, there will be a .sh file and two directories caled bin and lib. You just need to run the sh file using sh and it will take care of the rest.
