I follow here .

$ rosrun robot_upstart install [my pkg] pkg/launch/pkg.launch 

$ sudo service pkg start

Then, I have no issues and see the installation successfully.

but when I reboot, and using command rostopic list in Terminal, There are only two topic, /rosout and /rosout agg.

Find .ros/log There is nothing.

Check the systemctl status there are some messages.

ls: cannot access '/etc/ros/kinetic/lcd.d/*.xacro': No such file or directory
<14>May 10 09:27:13 root: lcd: Generated launchfile: /tmp/lcd.launch
<14>May 10 09:27:13 root: lcd: Started roslaunch as background process, PID 1116, ROS_LOG_DIR=/tmp
lcd: cannot connect to X server
process has died [pid 1199, exit code 1

lcd is my pkg name. Anyone help me ? There was a log path but there was nothing there.

Not an answer though,

ls: cannot access '/etc/ros/kinetic/lcd.d/*.xacro': No such file or directory

This should be ignorable (if no xacro found, job-start script skips the rest of xacro handling).

lcd: cannot connect to X server

This concerns me. I can't find any portion in robot_upstart where it could try to access X. I'd look into your package where this error can occur.

Also check this thread #q247880.

And another pkg, not using GUI app, is running perfectly ! But Only GUI applicaton doesn't not work. I success autostart at boot ros_package that doesn't use GUI.

Here I upgrade my question
