    It has become a tradition with my to do lists. This time, it’s for “Lucid Lynx”, the new Ubuntu release from Canonical. And yep it’s better than the previous version “Karmic Koala”. There have been some drastic changes in the UI and under the hood. Lucid Lynx, out of box, is faster, more social, cloud integrated…basically it feels like an operating system you would want to use today.  So without wasting any more word let’s get on with the list :)  :

    1 – Expand the Software Repository List

    First of all, lets make Ubuntu “see” more packages. Go to the terminal and edit your sources.list with :

    sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

    Here is the content of my sources.list which I think is quite complete to have all the necessary applications you could ever need. So delete the whole content of your sources list and replace it with the content of mine

    Save it. Now import the necessary repositories keys to avoid “aptitude” crying about some missing keys, go to the terminal and type:

    sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com DCF9F87B6DFBCBAE F9A2F76A9D1A0061 A040830F7FAC5991 2EBC26B60C5A2783

    Get your system up to date with :

    sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude full-upgrade

    Now all your programs will run on the last version.

    2 – Anti-Virus

    Windows equivalent : AVG AntiVirus, NAV, TrendMicro, F-Prot, Kaspersky, …

    Ubuntu equivalent : ClamAV, Avast

    ClamAV

    sudo aptitude install clamav clamtk

    Access it through System Tools → Virus Scanner .

    Avast

    wget http://files.avast.com/files/linux/avast4workstation_1.3.0-2_i386.deb && sudo dpkg -i avast4workstation_1.3.0-2_i386.deb

    Access it through Accessories → avast! Antivirus .

    3 – Essential tools for compiling from sources

    sudo aptitude install build-essential checkinstall cdbs devscripts dh-make fakeroot libxml-parser-perl check avahi-daemon

    4 – Java runtime environment

    Java is a very important thing to install, now that many programs like Azureus need it to run. So type:

    sudo aptitude install sun-java6-jre sun-java6-plugin equivs

    6 – Multimedia

    Windows equivalent : windows media player, real player, vlc, mplayer

    Ubuntu equivalent : vlc, mplayer, helix player

    To have Ubuntu playing all kinds of stuff, you need to install many codecs. So on the Terminal, type:

    * Installing vlc and mplayer (plays almost everything):

    sudo aptitude install vlc mplayer

    * Common packs

    sudo aptitude install non-free-codecs libxine1-ffmpeg gxine mencoder mpeg2dec vorbis-tools id3v2 mpg321 mpg123 libflac++6 ffmpeg libmp4v2-0 totem-mozilla icedax tagtool easytag id3tool lame nautilus-script-audio-convert libmad0 libjpeg-progs libmpcdec3 libquicktime1 flac faac faad sox ffmpeg2theora libmpeg2-4 uudeview flac libmpeg3-1 mpeg3-utils mpegdemux liba52-dev

    * Gstreammer 0.10

    sudo aptitude install gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg gstreamer0.10-fluendo-mp3 gstreamer0.10-gnonlin gstreamer0.10-pitfdll gstreamer0.10-sdl gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad-multiverse gstreamer0.10-schroedinger gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly-multiverse totem-gstreamer

    * More programs

    sudo aptitude install gstreamer-dbus-media-service gstreamer-tools ubuntu-restricted-extras

    * Enable dvd support

    sudo aptitude install libdvdcss2 && sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/./install-css.sh

    * Flash

    sudo aptitude install gsfonts gsfonts-x11 flashplugin-nonfree

    7. Tweak your eyecandy

    Ubuntu 10.04 comes with compiz fusion effects OOTB but doesn’t offer a way to customize them.

    In a terminal copy/paste this:

    sudo aptitude install simple-ccsm

    Now navigate to System → Preferences → Simple CompizConfig Settings Manager .

    8 – Missing Windows software?? Run Windows softwares in Linux!!!

    Run Windows Applications such as 7zip, Google Sketchup, AutoCAD, Dreamwaver, Flash MX, Fireworks MX, IE6, IE7, Safari, Itunes, Windows Media Player and many more…

    Play Windows Games in Linux like Age Of Empires, Call Of Duty, Diablo, Fear, Fallout, Far Cry, Grand Theft Auto, Half Life, Halo, Hitman, Max Payne, Need For Speed, Prince Of Persia, Sim City Star Wars, The Simsworld of warcraft , Tomb Raider, Warcraft, World Of Warcraft, Counterstrike and many other can be played.

    Install Playonlinux. It’s based on wine. Wine is a compatibility layer for running Windows programs in Linux.

    sudo aptitude install wine playonlinux

    9 – Clipboard Management

    By Default in ubuntu when u copy something from an application and closes the application u will not be able to access it from the clipboard. And also when u copy severals text in serial u only have the last on available to you in the clipboard.

    Welcome to the home of Hewlett-Packard's Linux Imaging and Printing software (HPLIP).

    Chances are, your Linux system already has the HPLIP software installed. That's because all major Linux distributions regularly pick up the HPLIP software and include it with their distribution installation. However, if it is not installed or you need to upgrade to a newer HPLIP version to support your printer, you've come to the right place.

    On this website you can download the HPLIP software which supports 1,971 HP printers on nearly any Linux distribution available today.

    You can also find answers to many of your questions within our new knowledge base, or post a question on the Get Help page when you can't find the answer directly.

    For a more detailed overview of HPLIP see the About page or just browse the site and let us know what you think on the Get Help page.

    1. Press Alt + F2 and enter gconf-editor . Press Enter to open it .

    2. The interface is reminiscent of the WIndows Regesitry editor ain'tit ?  Anyway navigate to apps -> metacity -> general

    3. Once done. Search for the button layout string under the general section.

    Now this is where things get complicated  So in order to make things easy we segregate the work in two part.

    a) To make the buttons appear to left in right order (Mac OSX style)

    b) To make the buttons appear to left in right order (Windows style)

    For a ) : - Change the buttons layout string to close,maximize,minimize:

    For b ) : - Change the buttons layout string to :minimize,maximize,close

    Choose the style you want and it will be appended once you are done with the settings
