I've read through the fourms, and came across a few methods for auto starting cgminer, but haven't had any luck so far.

How can I auto start bfgminer on my raspberry pi?

The below commands don't work like they do with minepeon:
sudo systemctl enable bfgminer.service
sudo systemctl start bfgminer.service


I can type and edit:
sudo nano /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE/autostart
but, I'm unsure what to add to the list to run bfgminer.

Currently, I have to run "./bfgminer -S all" from withing the bfgminer directory.

Thank you!

Why not run Minepeon on your Pi?  It starts bfgm or cgm, or choice in the config setup.  I've run as many as 60 miners across five hubs on a single Pi.  For the best hash and stability I like to keep it under 35+/- sticks per Pi.  I have 3 running now with 28/28/35 for a total hash of 30303mh/s.

I wanted to build it myself. More of a pride "I did it myself!" thing. Nothing wrong with minepeon. It worked great when I used it. Found it a bit unstable though, so I sought out something different.

In the end, I installed tightvncserver and start it as a service. I run my miner with in in the desktop. I know it robs some of the resources, but the cpu never gets above 25%, and is usually at just 5% - 10%.

This is the page that U used to get tightvncserver up and running:
