This is a small part of what the Install MIRC Zn on Ubuntu Linux MIRC-Zn installation on Linux script will do automatically for you

Using an UpStart Script

Ubuntu and many other Linux distros use UpStart to run services. The below example assumes CTP is installed at

/usr/share/CTP/

You can modify it to suit a different locations.

Cut and paste the below code

description "MIRC Zn (CTP plugin not Tomcat)"
author "Tim Phillips <timothy.john.phillips@gmail.com>"

start on (local-filesystems and net-device-up IFACE!=lo)
stop on stopping network-services

respawn

expect fork

script
cd /usr/share/CTP/
java -jar ./CTP-runner.jar
end script


into a file named

/etc/init/MIRC-Zn.conf

Start the service by typing

start MIRC-Zn

This will also start automatically when the machine boots
