Qt project run on raspberry pi boot
This is an old topic but I could not solve. I add the path and the run code on rc.local but pi does not start my application on boot. I copied the same path in home/pi/.bashrc file, this works when I click to terminal. How can I make my program to start on the boot of my raspberry pi?
Assuming there is nothing at all Qt in this question, you may get answers by posing it outside of anything Qt on, say, stackoverflow.

@aysenur I agree with @JonB it looks like your issue is not related to Qt itself. However, just in case, have you tried starting a different application from rc.local (please use a GUI app...) to check what could be wrong?
And to add to what @Pablo-J-Rogina is suggesting, might it to be that wherever from your
rc.localis too early to run a Qt if it is using a UI? By the time it gets to your
~/.bashrcfile that's per user and you'll need & have a desktop, if you try to run it outside login the desktop might not be available or may not be allowed access?
I would suggest going to
and add your application to that file.
something like this:
works fine for me
Thank you for your suggestions. I asked here because many people solved the issue with rc.local for python. I tried @J.Hilk suggestion. This solved the problem. Thank you. I also asked in raspberrypi forum. From the replies ; systemd under etc forlder is for this purpose and creating a service would solve the problem.
