[EN] rc.local on Ubuntu 18.x

On Ubuntu 18.04/18.10 I have missed the rc.local file that had helped me a few (thousand) times. Have you missed it too? By default, the file does not exit, but the service behind is present, so not everything is lost.
If you want to enable this feature on your Ubuntu, you are just few steps away.

First of all, let's create the file and set the correct perms

> touch /etc/rc.local
> chmod +x /etc/rc.local

and then let's give it the correct format

> echo "#!/bin/bash
exit 0" > /etc/rc.local

and it will work. You can check the state of the service as well with

> systemctl status rc-local

and start/stop it if you want to make any test.
