How to automatically launch vhusbdx86_64 on boot or login of ubuntu 14?

Not a linux expert yet.

I ended up doing this.

mv vhusbdx86_64 /etc/init.d/
chmod +x /etc/init.d/vhusbdx86_64
update-rc.d defvhusbdx86_64 defaults

Actually that didn't seem to

Follow the instructions at the top of the page here https://www.virtualhere.com/oem_faq , note that is for raspberry pi, however you just need to change the name of the binary in the init.d to vhusbdx86_64 instead of vhusbdarmhf

Preventing a reboot but instead launching the vhusb server

You need to edit the script

You need to edit the script you downloaded (the second wget you did) and change vhusbdarmhf to vhusbdx86_64

Me too...

That's what I found. Maybe a note on the relevant page, something like "Open /etc/init.d/vusbhd.pin with nano. Find the line starting with NAME=. substitute 'vhusbdarmhf' for the name of the file in /usr/sbin, e.g., NAME=vhusbdi386. Close Nano (control-x y ). Reboot.
