Getting Linux Mint 15 on his feet
BASIC COMMANDS AFTER LINUX INSTALL
After you installed the system you need to enter these basic commands, if you want the system to be friendly.
This is my History of commands from Terminal:
4 sudo gedit /etc/default/grub
6 sudo apt-get install gedit
9 sudo gedit /etc/default/grub
10 sudo update-grub
11 gksudo gedit /etc/rc.local
12 sudo update-grub
13 sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras
NEWSFLASH: The new L.M. 15 (Linux Mint = L.M.) didn’t have the gedit package installed!
Be smart and don’t follow my mistakes next time, first install the gedit package and then proceed to next bug fixes.
WHICH BUGS ARE FIXED WITH THESE COMMANDS?
- First you fix the Brightness bug from your laptop keyboard – most of you use Fn+Left or Right (or F5-F6… or whatever). Well, command number 4 is mainly for this.
- Disable the Bluetooth autostart after the system starts
- Install the package ubuntu-restricted-extras if you want to listen to mp3, and work with other media files easily.
OTHER PROGRAMS INSTALLED:
I’ve installed other programs along the default ones, as you can see:
- Audacious – enables you to listen to Radios or Mp3’s etc… it works like a Winamp.
- Chromium – the fastest Web Browser I’ve ever seen. Plus, I’ve installed this because sometimes page problems may occur on Mozilla Firefox, meanly they won’t open on Mozilla… but they will with Chromium! … and viceversa (what doesn’t work on Chromium works on Mozilla).
If I install more programs I will note them here, but for starters I’m done. See you on my next post.
