3 things to do after installing Lubuntu 12.10

Lubuntu it's the best looking and best looking desktop LXDE distribution I've ever seen. It maintains the effectiveness and simplicity of LXDE, and like the other distributions with LXDE, we can take advantage of our knowledge to have composition, launch applications at startup and share folders with SAMBA.


Install xcompmgr, samba and samba-client

We can do it from the software center or directly with a terminal by running:

sudo apt-get install aptitude xcompmgr samba samba-client

To run xcompmgr we can create a launcher and copy it to "~. / Config / autostart". To do this, we can take advantage of the "Create new shortcut" option by right-clicking on the desktop.

We fill in the corresponding fields and save. The corresponding launcher will appear that we can drag and drop to our autostart folder after opening pcmanfm and clicking on "show hidden files". Much more comfortable than other options and we can choose the icon that we like the most.

To configure our shared folder we will do it as usual by editing our file "/etc/samba/smb.conf" it will be enough to add at the end:

[Shared] comment = Shared browseable = yes writable = no path = / path / to / the / shared / folder public = yes

Then we just have to restart.

To enable or disable tapping on the touchpad we can use this script that uses synclient:

I did it by running:

sudo nano /home/javier/Scripts/touchpad.sh

and typing:

! / bin / sh # change tapping state on / off STATUS = $ (synclient -l | grep TapButton1 | awk '{print $ 3}') # change to other state if [$ STATUS = 0]; then synclient TapButton1 = 1 elif [$ STATUS = 1]; then synclient TapButton1 = 0 else echo "Cannot have touchpad state" exit 1 fi exit 0

Then we can create the corresponding launcher and copy it to / usr / share / applications so that it appears in the start menu or include it in the application bar of the panel. It is important to save it with the .desktop extension.

[Desktop Entry] Encoding = UTF-8 Type = Application Name = touchpad Name [es_ES] = touchpad Icon = / path / to / icon / touchpad-enable-icon.png Categories = Settings; Exec = / path / del / script / touchpad.sh Comment [es_ES] = Activate tap

Now we only need to install the applications that we like the most as in any other Ubuntu. 😉

    We have a saying that can be applied to you very openly: "If you want a system for stupid, stay in windows." Apology for ignorance. I crying kicking.

    The Mac if that is easy, it has a software center that when you click it installs the program, that is intuitive, ah, sorry that the GNU / Linux distros have it for years and others have copied it, with a simple click you install a program and you also have them sorted by categories and they are trusted. It is clear that you are a Troll without arguments. Nowadays using the mouse and editing text you can do many things in GNU / Linux.

    Because you don't know, you don't even know how to be educated. Come on, have fun with your Windows.

    If it is because of the simple you have a good part of reason, although ubuntu almost reaches windows in simplicity, friend I recommend that you use ubuntu downloaded from the Cannonical page, and if you feel the same, then of course it can not all of us like the same things and continue with your Guindous!

    Kabolo we can't be so intolerant!

    I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE FUCK SAMBA IS. I KNOW NOTHING. I HAVE INSTALLED KUBUNTU AND THIS IS A GARBAGE. WINDOWS IS SO EASY TO INSTALL SOMETHING THAT THE AVERAGE USER HAS 7 VIRUSES.

    IN LINUX IT'S AN ODYSSEY ...

    REPOSITORIES, DEPENDENCES, YUM, APT-GET… ... . .. IT NEEDS A FUCKING CAREER TO DO SOMETHING SIMPLE IN LINUX PUSSY. THE PROBLEM WITH LINUX IS NOT THAT IT NEEDS MORE EVANGELISTS, BUT THAT THE EVANGELISTS OUTSIDE ARE NOT ABLE TO RECOGNIZE THAT A MIDDLE USER WOULD BE NULLED BY THE SIMPLICITY OF THIS OPERATING SYSTEM.

    THAT'S WHY WINDOWS IS ... SORRY ... BETTER. BECAUSE YOU UNDERSTAND THE MIDDLE USER, AND THE MIDDLE USER UNDERSTANDS IT.

    BYE.
    CAPITAL LETTERS ARE BY THE CABREO CAPITAL LETTERS.

      Well, I have been using Linux for a short time and I am already very good with it, I already tried the ubuntu xubuntu and I stayed with lubuntu, I do everything I did with windows and if I loved linux and I am not an expert I am a common user I do not understand the because they say it's difficult vdd is nothing to write home about, it's just a little googling and all the answers are there

    It has pleasantly surprised me in many aspects. In my blog a few days ago I published a small review about this distribution ( http://www.oblogdeleo.wesped.es/?p=1107 ). The blog is in Galician, but I think it is quite well understood. It has a very attractive interface, a software center that seems wonderful to me, a good selection of applications (they coincide a lot with my favorites) and a performance that in my opinion is much more optimized than its mother distro, Lubuntu 12.04

    You should try LXLE (Lubuntu 12.04 but vitaminized): http://www.lxle.net/
