I am just starting out running Ubuntu trusty through crouton on my chromebook, and I am attempting at mounting my sd card at startup. I currently have a shell script which mounts the sd card when it is run, but I am not able to get my script to run at startup.

I have tried adding it to startup adding it to /etc/init.d and updating rc, I have attempted to add it to rc.local, I have tried adding it to fstab, and finally was a last ditch effort to add it to startup applications. I ended up just creating a shortcut that runs the program with root access, but I have to click it everytime I start up. Any help would really be appreciated!
