Ubuntu 20.04 Headless with Webmin

Post by walkerx »


I have a Ubuntu 20.04 Headless installation, which is accessed either via SSH or Webmin

I followed the manual install options to install the official recording package on linux but noticed there is no option to set this up so when reboot the device it would automatically start the record service again.

I tried creating a new entry in systemd through Webmin to start the service, but this never worked, even though could start it manually.

Does anyone know how to get this setup so will automatically restart when the pc is rebooted when enabled via systemctl

I ended up installing the unofficial version, which gives you instructions to enable the service, but not sure what differences are between this and the official SD version.

Would it be possible for the instructions for manual install be added to include the steps for setting this bit up?
