Setting up a new Ubuntu box.

This is for my own benefit... when setting up a new Ubuntu distribution, adjust the following...

  • Choose minimal install, and the create an EFI partition, a Swap partition, and a Root partition.
  • After reboot, pin the terminal to the bar.
  • gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface enable-animations false
  • apt-get update ; apt-get dist-upgrade ; apt autoremove
  • Make it accessible: apt-get install openssh-server
  • Booting should not be silent, edit /etc/default/grub
  • Copy over .ssh/ directory from another machine, so that I have my ssh keys.
  • Copy over .vim/ directory from another machine, so that I have my vim setup.
  • Add to .bashrc file: export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=$HOME/lib/pkgconfig:/opt/lib/pkgconfig
  • Add repositories for dbgsym packages.
  • To allow fan control: sudo nvidia-xconfig -a --cool-bits=4
  • apt-get install psensor traceroute imagemagick
  • apt-get install vim git cmake clang-10 libsdl2-dev opengl-4-man-doc
  • apt-get install inkscape gimp wings3d
  • Install CUDA
  • Set git identity: git config --global user.email "EMAIL" ; git config --global user.name "NAME"
  • Get rid of Gnome's indexing by tracker.
