How to run e2fsck on startup with opition -D


On startup, I would like to start e2fsck with option -D (optimize directories in filesystem).

I know I used to do this until I got another computer. It is probably a configurable option, but I cannot find it.

Can anyone help me with this?

Find the appropriate runlevel that calls this command and edit accordingly.

This will depend on your init system as to which files need to be changed:

SysV - /etc/rc.*
systemd - /usr/lib/systemd/system/*.service
