I try so many way to run ros_qt_gui_pkg at boot. This package using GUI. But they didn't work.

I tried to run package at boot using robot_upstart pkg but there is only package cannot to connect X server.

Also I tried another package, not using GUI, they perfectly work.

I want to run ros_qt_gui_pkg at boot.

Then, In this case, What Can I do ?

I suggested in #q292621 that you put together your questions on a single question #q290765 since info on these 2 questions seem to consist of one question.
