I would like to run this command in boot time:
This command prints "colored" content of /home/decker/test text file.So it would be something like welcome message during bootup process.
Tested this command when logged in in terminal.
I tried following, but nothing works:
- added "/usr/games/lolcat /home/decker/test" to /etc/rc.local
- created systemd service that should start this in boot time. (and was successfuly started, but I did not see colored content...)
- (very) desperately added "/usr/games/lolcat /home/decker/test" to /etc/init.d/procps. I was very desperate...
Tried with and without "quite" kernel boot arg.
Back in my days, when no systemd was here, this was simple. I have no idea what to do now.
In ideal world, I would like to place it after fsck messages while using "quite" kernel boot arg. (So there would be only messages with booting kernel name, fsck and colored welcome message). I dont want to use plymouth.
EDIT: So, thanks again for answers guys. We moved forward, but still no go. No rainbows. I added 3 mentioned lines to journalctl.conf. There is everything else commented out, so these 3 lines are there "alone". Then I added 2 mentioned lines to my unit. Content of my unit is:
[Unit] Description=Peace Unicorn [Service] Type=simple ExecStart=/bin/cat /home/decker/test5 StandardOutput=tty-force TTYPath=/dev/tty12 [Install] WantedBy=multi-user.target
When I restarted system, systemd printed this error:
[ 4.817429] systemd: [/etc/systemd/system/unicorn.service:7] Failed to parse output specifier, ignoring: tty-force
7th line is this: StandardOutput=tty-force. I tried to change it to "tty" only, but that did not printed anything.
Also I changed to "/bin/cat" from "lolcat" to focus on systemd problem for now.
