    Before starting, make sure you run the following to be updated.
    sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade

    After you are updated and upgraded, create your directory to link your RamDisk mount to by typing in (remember to change the %USER% to your actual user name):
    mkdisk -p /media/%USER%/RamDisk/

    Then, open up the fstab file by typing the following:
    sudo xed /etc/fstab

    Then add the following line (Again, remember to change the %USER% to your actual user name and whatever size you want. This example is for a 4GB file. AND ensure your spacing…):
    RamDisk /media/%USER%/RamDisk tmpfs defaults,size=4G,x-gvfs-show 0 0

    Last of all, you can do the following to see if it maps properly or if you end up with an error:
    sudo mount -a
