Wisenet Wave - Launch WAVE Server on Startup (Linux)

On Ubuntu 14.04.03-LTS, you can use the built-in tool - Startup Application.

You can very easily found it by search the keyword, “start app” from the menu. 


1. First, you open the tool, Startup Application.

2. You will see the application dialog, click Add button, which is located on the right side of the dialog.

3. Enter the path and command, /bin/bash /opt/Hanwha/client/


If you use different version, you are asked to changed the version number.

You can also check the path via the command, ps aux | grep Hanwha to find the correct path.


#4. Click Save, then you will see the new item in the list. Please make sure it is checked.


#5. Restart the server. Then you will see the client is opened after reboot.





NON-GUI Approach

For the advanced user, you can add an autostart script via command line. (Ubuntu14.04 LTS)

To launch the client when login, similar to the GUI solution, we can manually add a *.desktop file to ~/.config/autostart


  1. Login the system with your account via SSH.
  2. Change directory to /home/{$your account name}/.config/autostart
  3. If you don't have this folder, just use #mkdir to create.
  4. Create a new file called, WAVEclient.desktop
  5. Edit the file with the following content: 

[Desktop Entry]
Exec=/opt/Hanwha/client/{$WAVE Version Number}/bin/applauncher
Name=WAVE Client
Comment=WAVE Client

     6.  Save it and reboot the system.
