This seems simple but I can't seem to figure it out. I am trying to write a script to mount a drive on startup. the command I want to run is:

google-drive-ocamlfuse ~/gdrive

But i want it to run each time i start the computer up. I have tried to write a script and can't seem to figure it out. Help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance

  • You can also add the script on startup, search for startup and add the script there. – Qasim Dec 18 '13 at 5:14

  • yes i do. I also tried running it from the startup applications and it didn't work either. I imagine I wrote it wrong. I put #!/bin/bash at the top and saved it as a .sh. – frost58 Dec 18 '13 at 5:19
  • I figured it out. stupid mistake, forgot to change permissions. As you can tell this is new – frost58 Dec 18 '13 at 5:27
  • @frost58 glad you figured it out! can you please write it out as an answer? – virtualxtc Dec 18 '13 at 6:19

To add the script to the statup I wrote a bash script and found it with the startup applications program. My problem was changing the scripts permissions to executable before running it
