I also do not need to have the server running at all times. So I also opt for removing the .desktop from /etc/xdg/autostart

@grimsock, Thank you for reporting this issue.
I'd updated the dependencies. This package requires 'java-runtime>=8' now.

When java -jar /usr/share/selenium-server/selenium-server-standalone.jar
I got this error:

Could you please remove Selenium.desktop from /etc/xdg/autostart ? I think many of us do not need it running constantly.

Here is an update of the package to the latest version 2.53.1:

It would be great to:
- not put the .desktop file in /etc/xdg/autostart as izahn said
- provide a systemd entry to be able to start selenium server like any other service with systemctl

IMO it would be better not to put the .desktop file in /etc/xdg/autostart. I for one don't actually want it running constantly.

Has somebody done floreal suggestions from below? Can u share?
Cause i have to run server manually:
java -jar /usr/bin/selenium-server-java
systemctl start selenium-server.service
does nothing.

Maybe should switch to: phantomjs probably faster and headless as well.

If java-runtime isn't installed before, $JAVA_HOME is empty so selenium-server-java is linked to the wrong path. JAVA_HOME needs to be populated first.

Selenium server should be launched in a XVFB framebuffer.
There are two reason fort this:
- On a developer / tester / whatever, it allows runrning browser without being bothered with poping windows
- On a server (which can be part of a selenium grid), that may not have a GUI
I made a debian package which contains an init.d script. Feel free to study and adapt it to any other service management system (systectl, rc, etc.)
