Subject:Automating Kismet Functions on Boot

> I am looking to automate Kismet from boot on a Raspberry Pi (Raspbian 2012-12-16), have incorporated into init.d and have it starting on boot, but specifically...I have not been able to find a way to get around the windows when Kismet starts up (Start Server, etc). I disabled all of the windows in Kismet>Preferences, but it doesn't run like it should. I am looking to have peripherals (RTL8187/BU-353) plugged in, connect power and go.
> Is there a way to auto-acknowledge the windows and have it go straight into collection/logging without physically interacting with keyboard/mouse?

Don't run kismet client if you want a headless system - you can just do kismet_server + whatever options you want. --daemonize will auto-background it for you too.
