Things to do after installing Lubuntu 18.04

Things to do after installing Lubuntu 18.04

If you just install lubuntu 18.04 like me and if you also a beginner, you probably don't have an idea on what to do next, so in this article i will show you what i do after installing lubuntu 18.04. I hope this help.

Things to do after installing Lubuntu 18.04
  • the first thing you need to do is open up a command line and then run update command, so that the repository is updated
  • sudo apt-get update
  • the second thing you need to do is enable "Canonical Partners" in "Software & Updates", open "Software & Updates" and then click on tab "Other Software" and make sure the "Canonical Partners" options is checked.
  • install multimedia codec and fonts
  • sudo apt-get install lubuntu-restricted-extras
    sudo apt-get install gstreamer1.0-plugins-ugly
  • install vlc media player
  • sudo apt-get install vlc
  • install google chrome, i already make an article about this, so check that out.
  • install build-essential
  • sudo apt-get install build-essential
  • install GIMP if you need a software for editing images
  • sudo apt-get install gimp
  • install libre office if you need presentation software and office software in general, lubuntu 18.04 already comes with abiword as word processor, but i think libre could give you more options in terms of office productivity.
  • sudo apt-get install libreoffice

Additional software
As for additional software, it could be different from one person to another, for me because i'm a web developer, i'm going to need to install text editor such as sublime text, web server such as apache or nginx, database server such as mysql, postgre and mongodb. 

I also need to have command line tools such as npm and composer. What about you? what kind of software that you always have after installing new version of lubuntu/ubuntu? please comment down below, i really like to know..
