Add rclone to mount on startup

I am on Ubuntu 19.04 and currently manual type this two command to mount my google drive.

"screen -S rclone"
and "rclone mount -vvv --allow-other --transfers 50 --buffer-size 256M gdrive: /mnt/shared/gdrive"

How can I get Ubuntu to do that at startup. I like to do it in a screen so i can see what is uploading or download.


Probably the easiest way is to write this in a shell script and run it from your desktop startup which you'll find a GUI for in the desktop settings. This will run whenever you log in.

You can also run scripts from cron on machine start with

@reboot /path/to/script

I use this technique quite often.

The hardcore way would be to do it with systemd
