Configure Ubuntu 12.04 / 12.10 Faster and more stable!
Today I'm going to show you the best way to get a Ubuntu LTS 12.04, or its version 12.10, really stable but at the same time, updated to the latest versions of Ubuntu without suffering from all the evils of this distro and take advantage of only the good of it.
Why do it? Well, a lot of people complain about how unstable, slow and spam it is Ubuntu, but few know that Ubuntu can be really a good option. You just have to know how to configure it properly. How do we do it? Let's see it..
We downloaded the images of Ubuntu (minimal CD or netinstall).
We burn the preferred image on a CD or make it bootable on a pendrive and make sure that our pc is connected by cable to the Internet. We restart the PC and begin to install.
We leave all the options unchecked and just press Enter. The system will complete the installation without a graphical environment.
Once our Ubuntu This installed without graphical environment you log in. To do this, first write the username and then your password. Once logged in we continue with
enter your root password and then put:
# apt-get -y install ubuntu-desktop --no-install-recommends
# apt-get -y install gnome-panel synaptic network-manager
Once installed they restart, in the user manager choose the desktop «gnome classic» and you are locked.
Once they enter your system they open the Synaptic package manager (or via terminal) and you install these basic packages to obtain a system completely prepared to work:
$ sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras file-roller rar unrar system-config-printer cups vlc brasero kde-l10n-es okular p7zip devede libreoffice libreoffice-gtk libreoffice-l10n-es gimp gdebi gcalctool firefox firefox-locale-es thunderbird thunderbird-locale-en gconf-editor
I also recommend installing devede, transmageddon y edge.
An almost vital application to install proprietary drivers used by Ubuntu: jockey-gtk.
AND READY. Your spectacular and brand new Ubuntu 12.04 or 12.10 henceforth it is ready and terribly stable without having junk packages installed on a Ubuntu default.
