Gnirehtet not working in background

I am trying to run gnirehtet (reverse tethering program to give internet to android phones via USB) on startup. If I run it in a terminal emulator then it works fine. When I add it to my startup (xfce) it loads, but does not connect the device properly. After that it does not work untill I reinstall it. If anyone has any ideas that would be great :slight_smile:

On their documentation GitHub - Genymobile/gnirehtet: Gnirehtet provides reverse tethering for Android they mention to use:

./gnirehtet run

and for multiple devices, and automatically

./gnirehtet autorun

is that what you included for the startup entry ?

Yes. I am using gnirehtet autorun in both cases.

No, I wasnt. Sorry I was being dumb. I had written gnirehtet autostart not gnirehtet autorun. Autostart

and autorun actually connects to it.
