xubuntu 12.10 post-installation mini guide

21 Dec

I feel sorry for myself. I am not that old, but I just cannot get used to Unity3D. So the best thing I can do to stay with Ubuntu is to use xubuntu, the XFCE version of Ubuntu.

xubuntu is almost perfect, howerver, as usual, customization is always required.

1.1) enable Canonical’s ‘partner’ repository:

sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list

1.2) uncomment the following lines:

deb quantal partner
deb-src quantal partner

2) Then, update data base:

sudo apt-get update

3) Then, remove what I do not want:

sudo apt-get purge abiword* catfish* firefox-globalmenu firefox-gnome-support nano pidgin* thunderbird* gigolo* gucharmap* gmusicbrowser* plymouth-theme-* ristretto* xchat* apport* brltty* gnome-games-data gnome-sudoku gnomine ibus-pinyin* onboard parole xfce4-notes* xfce-dict* xfce4-mailwatch*

4) Then, update system:

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

5) Then, install what I want:

sudo apt-get install fglrx-updates vim virtualbox virtualbox-guest-additions-iso vlc smplayer gqview winetricks msttcorefonts ibus-table-cangjie5 ibus-table-cantonhk ibus-table-quick5 synaptic
