[Ubuntu 14] init-checkconf fails "ERROR: failed to ask Upstart to check conf file"
I have followed this tutorial:
and got as far as the instructions to run "init-checkconf /etc/init/testjob.conf" and that's where I'm stuck. It fails (after a few seconds), with the message:
ERROR: failed to ask Upstart to check conf file
so all I know is that my startup task doesn't work and I can't figure out why. The checkconf process has written files to
/tmp/ but they're empty, so not much help there.
When I google for this, I find lots of people saying that installing or launching
dbus will help. I have tried this and it's still the same.
