This is a server, but running in level 5

I need a air app auto-start when system start/restart, without ssh/vnc login

This AIR app need to start by a no-root user

Is there any way to do that ?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

How are you logging in? is this a physical terminal? You can also configure your application to start with Gnome assuming thats your desktop environment. –  Dejan Nov 16 '11 at 0:59
You'll need to investigate auto-login to X and then start the program from within X once it is up and running. –  sarnold Nov 16 '11 at 1:05
Assuming this application can be started, what does it need to do? Does it need to output anything on the physical display/speakers/etc? Do you need to be able to remotely access the service once it is started? –  Zoredache Nov 16 '11 at 1:23
