hello,

I would to run python script after each start of my UP Board. For that, i used cron to do it.

In my crontab i wrote this :
@reboot sleep 90 && /usr/bin/python3.5 /usr/bin/myScriptPython.py

The problem is that my script does not always run, after starting of my UP Board.

So can you help me please ?

    Just for your reference, You are using ubilinux based on debian Stretch, which is not supported anymore.

    In general to do that I would suggest you to use a init script to do that.
    In case of ubilinux you are still using the SystemV init.
    If you would move to a newer distribution/system you can take care of that using a systemd service

    Thanks for your answer.

    Can you please give me a link to a tutorial that uses init script ?

    Thanks a lot

    After checking again also Ubilinux uses Systemd, so you can refer to the following on how to start a script/application at startup:
