  • Hi @Akhil I found the following answer in one of the forums. here is the link to the thread.

    The way that I've seen most people do it (have a look on the Raspberry Pi forums), and have done myself with success is using /etc/rc.local.

    All you need to do here is put ./myscript in the rc.local text file. If it's in python, put python myscript.py.

    This literally is "a simple solution, (like dropping my script in some "startup" directory or something similar)"- maybe search on the forums when you're having questions as well, this solution came up on the first 4 results of a google search!
