After a long time, am back with one more instructable based on the FREE open source community i.e. LINUX
People have a conception or rather a misconception that Linux is very difficult to use and u need to code in Linux in order to use it.
Today these misconceptions are going to die a horrible death as I am going to reveal some methods to make you as comfortable with this OS as compared to any other like Mac or Windows.
You may choose not to believe me but check this out for yourself...
Step 1: Download Necessary Codes for Installing Packages
The most important thing to make Linux simple is know where to get the files from to download and install.
Here, i will give you the complete set of files containing everything from themes, scripts, commands and programs to download to make your life a bit easier.
First of all, Install Ubuntu 10.04 or later on your system and update the packages online (using update manager).
We begin after the above step is complete.
Add the following links in the software source to get additional packages:
Once, they are added. click on close. It will ask you to reload the packages. Select 'Yes'.
Details of step 1:
1. Goto Systems>Administration>Software Sources. The 'System' is located on the upper panel besides 'Applications' and 'Places' on the left hand side of the window.
Then click on the 'Other Software' tab in the Software Sources. You will see an 'Add' button at the bottom left hand side. Click on it and add these links one by one. Add one, click 'Add Source' and then add another. Keep doing till you are done with all three. Click on 'Close' button. It will ask you to reload the packages. Click 'Yes' (YOU WILL NEED TO HAVE INTERNET CONNECTION AT THE TIME OF RELOADING THE PACKAGES).
We are done with the step 1. See the pics below for more information.
