Enabling Angelfish to Load on Startup using systemd

For Linux environments, here are steps for enabling Angelfish to boot at startup using systemd.

These steps are based on instructions from this help article:

1) Create file called 'angelfish.service' in /etc/systemd/system/

You will need root or sudo privileges to create this file. Once created, the file needs permissions of 664.

Example angelfish.service file:

Description = Start Angelfish at boot
After =
User = angelfish
ExecStart = /usr/local/agfs/agfsctl --start
ExecStop = /usr/local/agfs/agfsctl --stop
Type = forking
WantedBy =

You can copy and paste the above into the angelfish.service file (ignore the equals signs). Be sure to update the following variables to match your environment:

User: the service account used to start/stop Angelfish
ExecStart: full path to "agfsctl --start"
ExecStop: full path to "agfsctl --stop"

2) Register the angelfish.service file

Run the following commands as root:

systemctl daemon-reload
systemctl enable angelfish.service

Angelfish will now boot at startup!

You can start / stop Angelfish by calling the agfsctl binary directly, or by running the following:
systemctl start angelfish.service
systemctl stop angelfish.service
