After the upgrade to Ubuntu 9.10 I spent some time installing some of the applications I had in the previous installation and doing some little system tuning.
- Enabled the bash “smart” completion function that helps completing not only file names but also commands options: I edited the “bash.bashrc” file ...
and removed comments from the following lines (more details here)sudo gedit /etc/bash.bashrc
# enable bash completion in interactive shellsif [ -f /etc/bash_completion ] && ! shopt -oq posix; then. /etc/bash_completionfi
- Installed Fbreader: I installed it using “Ubuntu software center” then I copied files “books.xml” and “config.xml” from the previous installation backup in the ".FBReader" folder in order to keep my configuration and books list.
- Installed TrueCrypt: I just downloaded the last version from here and installed it following the same process I already used.
- Installed Java and NetBeans: Ubuntu 9.10 repositories are quite up-to-date so I first installed Java JDK (1.6.0_15) using apt-get command:
sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jdk
then I simply installed Netbeans (6.7.1) from the software center
