How to troubleshoot a program that does not start

Posted on

Problem :

I’m using Ubuntu Server 14.04 and I’m trying to execute a program, namely deluged. However, whenever I do so, whether in script or directly via the CLI, it never appears when I do ps -A | grep deluge. I have no idea about troubleshooting in Linux, so how can I start off by solving this issue?

Solution :

First thing to do is check the logfiles to see if an error is being generated when you try to run the program. As a starting point, I would look in /var/log/syslog and search for deluge and see what that turns up. You might also try reading the documentation on their website.
