You need to enable the service through systemctl. Here's a long discussion that
looks at quite a few of the things that can affect getting rc.local functional.
Quite a bit more to it than just putting a script there:

Well....

I did nothing else other than create a /etc/rc.d/rc.local ...

[egreshko@f16-1 rc.d]$ ll

This will fail. synclient needs a DISPLAY to work with. When rc.local
is run it's before there's any X session and thus no display. I would
expect this to not work.

From an active X session? Yes, I would expect that to work since you
have a DISPLAY.

I would look at making these into a script, then give it a desktop file
and set it to autostart in your desktop env. At that point it should
have a display and work.

You're right Kevin.

In fact that first line of rc.local was being loaded.

I've done what you told me (create sh script, add it to auto-loaded
programs) and it's working now.


Thanks everyone!

systemctl status rc-local.service shows?

But, it doesn't matter. It works as advertised. The problem the OP had, has been
solved. The command being used in his script required a DISPLAY.

I can't make head of tail of the discussion in the web site you mention.

On my machine any systemctl statement that includes rc.local.service
returns a statement that rc.local.service does not exist.

What do you get from the web site?

It should be "rc-local.service", not "rc.local.service". Like this:

[root@xena ~]# systemctl -a | grep rc-local
rc-local.service loaded active running <snip>
