I recently installed Ubuntu on my samsung chrome book. Because the chrome book does not have alot of space, I would like to be able to install and run applications off of an external drive. I would like to use an SD card, as the small size and built in SD card reader makes that most convenient. How do I install and run applications on an external drive?
