I make a simple shell script that opens gnome-text-editor named, in directory /home/pi/:

! /bin/sh

And changed service file to:

#!/bin/sh -
Description=ATF Grafic Console




#StandardOutput=syslogConsola               # Output to syslog
#StandardError=syslogConsola                # Output to syslog


Again I try run this service, and report the same error.. ExecStart= needs to have full path, but in my app i need to run in other path like this example..
