Running Python 3 scripts on Jetson Nano Startup Automatically

Hi everyone,
I’m trying to run a simple python 3 script on my Jetson Nano upon boot. But I’m having difficulty seeing if the program even starts up on boot. the file’s name is and it simply performs print(“Hello World”).
So far, I have tried following Snarky’s guide here:

However, I just just don’t see the output anyway upon reboot, nor do I ever see it running as a background process. I currently think the program either finishes before I log in and open the terminal, or it just doesn’t run at all.

I have also tried the Startup Applications in Ubuntu GUI and crontab. Both to the same results. Guidance would be greatly appreciated!


Suppose this should add your script into startup app list.
Would you mind to share the detail modification you have made?
So we can check if anything missing.


There is no update from you for a period, assuming this is not an issue any more.
Hence we are closing this topic. If need further support, please open a new one. Thanks
