Auto-Start Program at Login in Angstrom on BeagleBoard

view story

http://stackoverflow.com – How do I start an application automatically after login? I have tried the following: Editing /etc/inittab but I don't have an /etc/inittab file, it looks like my system uses systemd. Starting my application by adding it to the script /etc/rc.local. Adding a script in /etc/init.d and a symlink to the script in /etc/rc5.d/S51script_name. Calling my script from ~/.bashrc and ~/.bash_profile. Adding a service to systemd but I couldn't get it to work and it seems more complicated than it should be for my purposes. I am running Angstrom v2012.01-core - Kernel 3.0.17+ on BeagleBoard xM.
