post 14.04 install configs

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 5:12 pm
Assuming a 64 bit install I like to have the following packages on all my systems

sudo apt-get install vim-gnome tmux cscope ctags vim-doc minicom git-core curl mutt \
  ca-certificates ssmtp msmtp fetchmail procmail ssh sshfs xchat openssl \
  nmap manpages-dev manpages-posix manpages-posix-dev quilt subversion \
  mercurial ipython gcc-avr gcc avr-libc gcc-avr binutils-avr avr-libc \
  avrdude python-numpy python-matplotlib graphviz python-scipy \
  python-numpy-doc python-pip python-virtualenv laptop-mode-tools powertop \
  latencytop libncursesw5-dev gitk rar gimp synaptic libav-tools openjdk-7-jdk
sudo apt-get install git gnupg flex bison gperf build-essential \
  zip curl libc6-dev libncurses5-dev:i386 x11proto-core-dev \
  libx11-dev:i386 libreadline6-dev:i386 libgl1-mesa-glx:i386 \
  libgl1-mesa-dev g++-multilib mingw32 tofrodos \
  python-markdown libxml2-utils xsltproc zlib1g-dev:i386

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/mesa/

sudo apt-get build-dep linux-image-3.13.0-24-generic linux-image-3.13.0-24-lowlatency

sudo apt-get install linux-image-3.13.0-24-lowlatency
sudo dpkg-reconfigure dash (answer no) 

Now the system is acceptable for use and ready for configuring assorted dot-files the way I like them. 

sudo apt-get install unity-tweak-tool ubuntu-restricted-extras indicator-multiload 

sudo sh -c 'echo "deb quantal partner" >> /etc/apt/sources.list' 
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install skype 
sudo apt-get install gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly libxine1-ffmpeg gxine mencoder libdvdread4 \
totem-mozilla icedax tagtool easytag id3tool lame nautilus-script-audio-convert libmad0 mpg321 \

If you are rocking a C710 running Seabois then you'll want to add the following to your /etc/modules file:

then install google chrome form their site.

For skype correct behaviour with the notifier icon don't forget to:
sudo apt-get install sni-qt:i386
