What to do after installing Linux Mint 18.1 "Serena"

As with the past version of Linux Mint, today I proceeded to do a clean install of Linux Mint 18.1 "Serena" with Cinnamon Desktop Environment, I wondered whether or not to carry out the guide What to do after installing Linux Mint 18.1 "Serena", because it might seem trite. I was encouraged to do it, improving and automating some steps.

In this new version we will be able to do the entire application and theme installation issue from a script, but in the same way, I will leave how to do it separately, since many loved using the themes and icons in their respective distros.

The guide is based on my guide to What to do after installing Linux Mint 18 "Sarah", in addition to the guide let's use linux and Ultimate Linux Mint 18 de Erik dubois (from which I took several scripts and customized them to my liking). 

After completing the guide, your desktop will probably be this way, as well as updated, stable and with a good amount of essential software, all this quickly and safely.

Linux Mint 18.1

Linux Mint 18.1

What's new in Linux Mint 18.1 "Serena"?

Linux Mint 18.1 "Serena" is the youngest of the Linux Mint 18 family, it comes equipped with Cinnamon 3.2, MDM 2.0, the Linux kernel 4.4 and uses Ubuntu 16.04 as a base package. Similarly, Linux Mint 18.1 is also LTS, so it will receive security updates until 2021.

In the same way, the most important characteristics are the following:

  • The default software has been updated to the latest available versions and new features have been added.
  • The screensaver has been redesigned and rewritten from scratch in Python. Not only does it look better, it is also much faster, more responsive, and more customizable than the old one.
  • Hardware support improvements.
  • Incorporation of vertical panels.
  • The sound applet can now handle multiple inputs.
  • The performance of the start menu has improved and has been updated so that it can be fully navigated from the keyboard.
  • The update manager now gives us the possibility to know the origin of the package.
  • Language management optimization.

Some considerations to take into account before starting the guide

  • Unlike Ubuntu, Mint comes by default with most of the multimedia audio and video codecs, so updating them is not a priority.
  • Another important component that is installed by default is Synaptic, the well-known package manager.
  • If you have the Ubuntu-based version, many programs and packages are highly compatible between both distributions.
  • Linux Mint 18.1 comes with several desktop environments, most of the steps performed in this guide (if not all) are compatible with each of the desktops.

Steps to perform after installing Linux Mint 18.1 "Serena"

It is important to note that each of these steps have been tested and their correct result has been verified, in the same way, this is my personal step by step, so probably some things you do not need to do according to your tastes, this guide will save you a lot of time and above all it will help you to have your distro stable and beautiful.

Run the Update Manager

It is possible that new updates have come out since you downloaded the image, so you can check if there are updates available from the update manager (Menu> Administration> Update Manager) or with the following command:

The Mint team classifies updates into five levels of security / danger, and the installation of level 4 and 5 from Ubuntu is not recommended for novice users, because it is suspected or known that they can cause instability or be fatal for the system. What we do by launching the command sudo apt-get upgrade by terminal is precisely install ALL the updates, both beneficial and harmful for Mint, which may cause some problems
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

Install the proprietary drivers (video card, wireless, etc.)

In the Preferences Menu> Additional Drivers we can update and change (if we wish) the proprietary driver of the graphics card or other device that is causing problems.

proprietary driver linux mint

Install the language pack

Although by default Linux Mint installs the Spanish language pack (or any other that we have indicated during the installation) it does not do so completely. To reverse this situation we can go to Menu> Preferences> Language support or also by typing the following command in a terminal:

sudo apt-get install language-pack-gnome-en language-pack-en language-pack-kde-en libreoffice-l10n-en thunderbird-locale-en thunderbird-locale-en-en thunderbird-locale-en-ar

Install battery manager

In case you have installed Linux Mint 18.1 on your laptop, I recommend that you install a battery manager that will allow you to manage the charging and discharging of your battery for them, we must follow the following steps:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:linrunner/tlp
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install tlp tlp-rdw

The default configuration of this application guarantees proper use of your battery, so just install it and that's it.

Install git

Without a doubt, this is a mandatory step, to install git in Linux Mint 18, we must write the following command:

sudo apt-get install git-all

Install essential programs automatically

Erik dubois has made a big update to its script for automatic installation of applications, themes and icons, so we are going to use it in replacement of the one we had made in the version for Linux Mint 18. CWith it you can install the following applications and some others:

Spotify
Sublime Text
Variety
Inkscape
Plank
Screenfetch
Google Chrome
adobe-flashplugin
catfish
clementine
curl 
dconf-cli 
dropbox 
evolution 
focuswriter 
frei0r-plugins 
geary 
gpick
glances
gparted 
grsync 
hardinfo 
inkscape 
kazam 
nemo-dropbox
radiotray 
screenruler 
screenfetch 
scrot 
shutter 
slurm 
terminator 
thunar 
vlc 
vnstat 
winbind
gedit
npm

To do this installation you must execute the following commands:

 git clone https://github.com/erikdubois/Ultimate-Linux-Mint-18-Cinnamon.git cd Ultimate-Linux-Mint-18-Cinnamon / ./quick-install-v2.sh

A long process will begin that will optimize your distro, install all updates, clean the OS, install multiple necessary applications, install themes and icons. In short, by running this script, your Linux Mint 18.1 "Serena" will be ready to be enjoyed as it deserves.

Customize appearance

There are many ways to customize your Linux Mint 18.1, many of them are free, I particularly don't have much time to install things one by one, go testing and so on, so I take advantage of 3 scripts that will allow us to install various themes, icons and settings for conky.

To access the script to download and install the best themes and icons, we must clone the repository that contains both, in addition to the scripts to install each theme separately. For this we must execute the following command:

git clone https://github.com/erikdubois/themes-icons-pack.git

Script to install the best themes for Linux Mint 18.1

To run the script all-in-once-installation_deb_themes.sh, found in the repository themes-icons-pack.git that we cloned, we must from the cloned directory, execute the following script in this way:

./all-in-once-installation_deb_themes.sh

This script will automatically install the following themes for Linux Mint 18.1

Script to install the best icons for Linux Mint 18.1

As we did with the themes, to install the icons we must locate ourselves in the directory of themes-icons-pack.git and run the following script like this:

all-in-once-installation_deb_icons.sh

This script will automatically install the following icons for Linux Mint 18.1

Selecting the Theme and Icons

Once you have installed the icon and theme pack, we proceed to select the most appropriate one, to do this from the menu we access «Topics», we choose the combination of Window Borders, Icons, Controls, Mouse Pointer and Desktop.

If you want your desktop to be like mine, you must choose the following configuration:

linux mint themes 18

linux mint themes 18.1

It is worth noting that if you want to uninstall the icons and themes in the future, you can do so by executing the following script found in the cloned repository:

./uninstall-all-icons-and-themes.sh

Script to install the best conky configuration for Linux Mint 18.1

Conky, is a system monitor that displays information on various components, such as RAM memory, CPU usage, system time, etc. The great advantage is that there are many "skins" of this application.

In this case I use Aura a collection of excellent conky configurations, which we will access by cloning the official repository:

 git clone https://github.com/erikdubois/Aureola

Open the folder and run the following script

 ./get-aureola-from-github-to-local-drive.sh

This script will download a series of configurations from github and create the .aura folder (hidden folder). Where later each conky configuration can be selected, we go to the created folder

 cd ~/.aureola

Once in this directory we execute:

  ./get-aureola-from-github-to-local-drive.sh

which will update conky to the latest version. If we access the .aureola directory we will be able to view various folders which correspond to various conky configuration, to choose the one we want, we enter the corresponding folder and execute the following command: ./install-conky.sh which will make all the necessary settings automatically.

The conky configurations available in halo are as follows:

Halo - Poku

Screenshots

Halo - Gambodekdue

Screenshots

Halo - Gambodekuno

Screenshots

Halo - NetsenseScreenshotsHalo - Asura
Screenshots

Screenshots

Halo - AcrosScreenshots
Halo - Salis

Screenshots

Halo - LazuliScreenshots
Halo - SparkScreenshots
Halo - AlvaScreenshots

In order for Conky to run when Linux Mint 18.1 Serena starts, we must follow the following procedure:

From the Linux Mint menu go to aplicaciones al inicio, then add and create one with the name conky and the command conky

Conky Home

Install restrictive fonts

If it is necessary to install them, we must write the following commands in a terminal:

sudo apt-get install ttf-mscorefonts-installer

We accept the license terms by managing with TAB and ENTER.

It is important to do it from a terminal and not from any of the managers, since we will not be able to accept the terms of use in them.

Install software to play

For me this is not essential, but for those who like games, in addition to the large library of games that the repositories have, we also have http://www.playdeb.net/welcome/, another page that specializes in collecting games for Linux systems in .deb packages. If we also want to enjoy our Windows games, not to despair, since we have some alternatives:

1. Wine (http://www.winehq.org/) provides us with the compatibility layer to run not only games, but also all kinds of compiled software for Windows systems

2. PlayOnLinux (http://www.playonlinux.com/en/) another resource that provides us with a library capable of installing and using software designed for Windows

3. Lutris (http://lutris.net/) a gaming platform developed for GNU / Linux, a great resource despite being in development stages.

4. Winetricks (http://wiki.winehq.org/winetricks) works as a script that helps to download libraries needed to run games on Linux, such as .NET Frameworks, DirectX, etc.

For all these programs, we can consult in their respective official pages, the Linux Mint Programs manager or the terminal. Likewise, we highly recommend reading this mini-tutor which explains how to install and configure each of them.

Steam for Linux (http://store.steampowered.com/search/?os=linux)

For some time now, the Steam gaming platform can be used natively. This means that there are a growing number of games available on Steam that are natively developed to run on Linux.

To install Steam, just download the .deb file from the Steam page.

Then they will use the following command:

sudo dpkg -i steam_latest.deb

Possibly some dependency errors. If so, just enter the following command to repair them:

sudo apt-get install -f

Then when you open Steam, it will update. Here You will find a complete list of Linux games available on Steam.

Steam on Linux Mint

Install audio plugins and an equalizer

Some of them, like Gstreamer or Timidity, will help us to expand our catalog of supported formats; both are found in the Programs manager or can be installed using the command sudo apt-get install. It is also recommended to install pulseaudio-equalizer, capable of providing advanced Pulse Audio configuration and improving sound quality. To install it we will use 3 commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa: nilarimogard / webupd8 sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install pulseaudio-equalizer

Install other programs

The rest is to get the software you want for each need. There are many ways to do it:

1. In the Program Manager, which we enter from Menu> Administration, we have a very generous number of programs for any function that occurs to us. The manager is arranged by categories, which facilitates the search for what we want. Once the program we need is located, it is only a matter of pressing the install button and typing the Administrator password; We can even create an installation queue that the same manager will execute sequentially.

2. With the Package Manager we do know exactly which packages we want to install. Not recommended to install programs from scratch if we do not know all the packages we will need.

3. Through a terminal (Menu> Accessories) and typing usually sudo apt-get install + program name. Sometimes we will have to previously add the repository with the commands sudo apt-get ppa: + repository name; to search for a program with the console we can type apt search.

4. On page http://www.getdeb.net/welcome/ (Playdeb's sister) we also have a good catalog of software compiled in .deb packages

5. From the official page of the project if you have any other installation steps.

Some software recommendations:

  • Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera: Internet browsers
  • Mozilla Thunderbird: email and calendar manager
  • Libre Office, Open Office, K-Office: office suites
  • Mcomix: comics reader
  • Okular: multiple file reader (including pdf)

    🙁 I have an nvidia 960m card, after installing the cinnamon manufacturer's driver after restarting it tells me "cinnamon just crashed you are currently running in Fallback Mode"

    1.    Damart said

      The same thing happened to me and the solution that worked for me was to close the session and start the session again, solving the problem that has not been repeated.
      Release Notes for Linux Mint 18.1 Cinnamon
      NVIDIA Optimus
      On NVIDIA Optimus laptops the Driver Manager recommends the installation of the NVIDIA drivers.
      These drivers add support for NVIDIA Prime, which gives you the ability to switch between the NVIDIA and the Intel chipset.
      After you install these drivers, you need to reboot the computer for them to load.

      Upon reboot, an issue is preventing NVIDIA prime from working correctly and this will make Cinnamon crash.

      Simply log out and log back in to fix this issue

      1.    Luis M said

        I've already done that and it's still the same.

    2.    Luigys toro said

      Can you please try what damart indicates and tell us again how you are doing.

  2.   George said

    regards

    Recently I was encouraged to try the use of Linux, specifically Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon and it seems to me a fairly intuitive and easy distribution, I just installed with dual boot because to be honest I am still afraid to leave Windows for all the time I have been using it. [but today I use Mint by 80%]

    In addition to the default Free Office, Wps Office is quite interesting, although its compatibility with extensions is not open source. Docx ,. Xlsx and. Pptx that to date are not 100% compatible with Libre Office.

    For now I can see that Linux is stable, secure and fast, a great thing. I have it installed on a 64 bit machine and as a free software novice I will continue to use it.

    1.    Luigys toro said

      I am very happy that you give yourself the opportunity to use Linux, Linux Mint 18 is a great distro, quite stable and very intuitive for new users. I highly recommend the beginner's guide to Linux https://blog.desdelinux.net/guia-para-principiantes-en-linux/ that will allow you to have a greater focus on the operating system.

      We hope that more people like you will be given the opportunity to try an operating system that allows you to be free and to be the owner of each of the functionalities that it has.

    Hello friends,
    I installed this update (Erik Dubois) and I imagine that I missed some important step before proceeding to restart the system to continue with the customization proposed by Luigys Toro, which I find very interesting.
    What has happened is that the reboot does not recognize my password and I cannot access the system.
    Could anyone help me please. I have been using Mint exclusively for some time, but I am still new to these distros.
    Thank you very much in advance.
    a greeting

    This article is what I call an excellent post about Desktops. Although until today I have not used LinuxMint and perhaps installed Cinnamon on Jessie, they give desire to mount Mr. Mint, the most used distribution today according to distrowatch.com ... followed by Debian. 😉
    If not for the real difficulty I have in getting hold of the repositories and accessing the Internet ...
    Greetings and successes, Dear Luigys!

    Hello friend, this tutorial of yours is excellent. I have a problem and that is that I cannot open folders with the terminal. When I did the cloning with the following command: git clone https://github.com/erikdubois/themes-icons-pack.git and I tried to put this command in the terminal: ./all-in-once-installation_deb_themes.sh told me that the directory did not exist. Another thing when this cloning is finished, should I restart the machine or simply close the assignment? As I have to open that first cloned folder from the terminal.

      Hello, from your root directory you must give the command «cd themes-icons-pack» then you execute the command

    How do I uninstall the conky?
    Run the scripts as it says there, install the Asura conky, but how do I uninstall all that since there are no Script to uninstall as is the case with themes and icons.
    since I found out that there is something called a conky manager and if it runs, it overlaps one conky with another.
    I am still interested in knowing how to uninstall the conkys and all its involved folders. For the day it takes to remove them

    Thank you very much.

    My case is strange because I come from using distributions where the priority is to avoid any non-free software or driver at all costs, and well, it is clear that Linux Mint handles a different policy, I feel a bit strange using a distro like this but it is what it touches. The interface is very nice and practically everything is done as soon as you restart after the installation, an update, the microcode drivers, the classic Windows ttf. I have not done the step of the software that comes with that git because I have not decided yet which software I am going to install but it will be by hand, I may do the one with the themes and icons because some are cool. Anyway, what a transition from Trisquel and Parabola to this xD

    I'm trying to install it, but there are things that I don't understand, like when I want to install halo, it says you go into the folder to install the script, I don't know how to enter it.
    This is what has always thrown me back from linux, very complicated for newbies

    excellent contribution thanks, but I have a question, after cloning the folder for icons, positioning myself in the themes-icons-pack folder and executing all-in-once-installation_deb_icons.sh it tells me that the file or directory does not exist.
    and also at the time of cloning the repository and placing myself in the aureola folder for conky and executing ./get-aureola-from-github-to-local-drive.sh it tells me the same that the file or directory does not exist.
    Could you help me?

      In home there is the folder themes-icons-pack, in the terminal write cd / and paste the address where the folder is, in my case it would look like this
      cd / home / savior / themes-icons-pack… ..and once there you hit the terminal: ./all-in-once-installation_deb_themes.sh

      the same with the icons ... remember that before «all ...» you must put ./

    Excellent contribution, but how do I not install all the printers on the network, only the ones that I add manually.
