There are ways that should not be lost, as the post-installation guides or “things to do after installing ….” A useful resource especially for new users , so it is desirable that the information is current. Today we do this, seventy-two hours after the launch of Ubuntu 11.04 and company.
can be read below article is not exactly common in such cases is the compilation of different articles written over the blogosphere Hispanic, more additions own steps as are applicable to all Ubuntu family unless not specified . Started.
before installing (All)
Before installing, you have to download (from the first links in this article), then choose installation media, recording the ISO image to a CD or creating with it a Live USB (if Windows we can do very easily with USB Universal Installer, if you’re on Ubuntu is even easier with the creator of boot disks, if Linux is generally available Unetbootin in almost all repositories ).
If you’ve never installed Ubuntu or not we remember well the process, it is prudent to give a good look at yourself before getting down to work (although it is extremely easy.) Life In Ubuntu we have, with images, how to install Ubuntu step 11.04 (the guide is only for Ubuntu but from one version to another only change aesthetic details.) Also in OMG! Ubuntu! find another complete guide, but English .
basic steps after installation of the system are common to all the Ubuntu family and even the vast majority of GNU / Linux: upgrade, installation of proprietary drivers and restricted extras .
The first two options are automatically submitted to us a few moments after the first logon and must run software updates first, second proprietary drivers . Once this is done is to restart the system.
restricted extras for their part, we installed a stroke many common packages such as Flash Player , support for MP3 and DVD , the font of Microsoft , Java , etc.. Can be found in the software manager simply typing “ restricted ” (without the quotes) and you have to choose the appropriate package to the distribution installed, as follows:
ubuntu-restricted-extras (Ubuntu, Ubuntu Studio and Mythbuntu)
Thu Keep in mind that during the installation of the system gives the user the ability, scoring two boxes, install a proprietary media such as MP3 and install updates on the fly, but the first option leaves packages install and the second can be postponed without problems (there’s always time to upgrade).
“Unity or classic desktop
We have installed Ubuntu
11.04, the updates that are pending, proprietary drivers and even the restricted extras, but Unity is still missing. It may not have anything to do, but you can still taste the experience by Unity Unity 2D , you will find in the center of software to write his name.
On the contrary, it is possible that what we dare not stand the sight of it to Unity, preferring the classical setting as default. Unity can remove the root, but perhaps a bit drastic decision. Sufficient to select the login screen “Ubuntu classic as you can see in the image below:
What is Unity
If we are willing to dive into Unity , recently published an introductory guide however is in English (we publish your ad, the work is done by a Ubuntu user), but Engadget has been charged with making two fairly comprehensive articles that review the Unity features top-down, highly recommended reading: Unity depth Shell I and II.
In the first of these items are explained new keyboard shortcuts , which are particularly important to Mac OS X. Regarding this I also brought some wallpaper and assistance they were in English, but have been translated and here you have:
Ubuntu repositories are huge, it is difficult that you should find applications to cover almost any task from the same center-or manager-on software, but you can always wanting or needing more. No problem.
For example, we can begin to add GetDeb repositories, where there are many programs and games waiting to be installed. Open the console:
wget-q-O – http://archive.getdeb.net/getdeb-archive.key | sudo apt-key add –
sudo sh-c ‘echo “deb http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu getdeb natty-apps”>> / etc / apt / sources.list.d / getdeb.list’
sudo apt-get update
There are many other applications “first” does not come preinstalled with the system or not in the repositories, usually due License (proprietary software), tri-fold to install with a few clicks . At the heart of the Ubuntu software will find some of the most popular:
web pages of other complications installers ready to find Ubuntu , like Opera, Dropbox and so on, just have a good look in the downloads section which we are interested.
ending this point we just need Ubuntu Tweak, a comprehensive application that will help you configure many of the parameters of the desktop applications add your own repository , etc.. But careful if you do not know what you do , because it is more portentous than it seems.
Anything else? There’s always more, so far, so as almost anyone going well served. And we have not said anything about the PPA! But this only just started …
