Run web version as a Linux service

Hello, does anyone know how to run the web version as a service? I’ve seen the post for the CLI version but I am using the web version on Ubuntu.


Web version needs HOME environment variable and command line arguments to suppress the tray icon and browser auto start (-no-tray-icon -background). Then just use launch control of your OS to manage startup.

IIRC Ubuntu uses upstart — example upstart daemon configuration you can find here (article describes configuration for Synology, that also happens to use upstart) Duplicacy Web on Synology Diskstation without Docker | Trinkets, Odds, and Ends

Edit. Ubuntu is now using systemd apparently, but it’s trivial to adapt
