I am running Splunk on Fedora Core 12. How do I configure Splunk to show up in the Service control applet? or register the file as a service?

i.e. service splunkd status

You can run the enable boot start command:

As root, run:

$SPLUNK_HOME/bin/splunk enable boot-start

To start splunk as another user, use -user parameter to specify which user to start Splunk as. For example, if Splunk runs as the user splunker, then as root you would run:

$SPLUNK_HOME/bin/splunk enable boot-start -user splunker

Thank you @the_wolverine for the well-written and accurate answer.  This worked on CentOS 9 as well.

My only questions is why I found this in a user group instead of the install guide.
