I need to run
sudo modprobe wacom at startup to prevent an unrecoverable kernel panic (a blackscreen drop to terminal with repeating 1second audio looping and zero responsiveness) from occurring when a standard wacom intous (CTH-480) tablet is plugged into USB port on stock XUbuntu 14.04 LTS. I believe mainline kernel fixed this issue some time ago.
Where is the preferred location for this? It must be run as root.
I have seen this How to run scripts on start up? but I am unsure which answer would work for the required permission level of modprobe.
