Ubuntu Master ubuntu 14.04 usb instalation

A quick widdle tutorial about installing Ubuntu 14.04 using a USB stick








Use Apt to get the required Unetbootin package or download the tar-ball from the below link for your platform.
  1. http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/
Insert Your USB pen-drive into the Linux machine and Launch Unetbootin.  Check the content above the red line. 

Type should be Usb Device, strictly and if more than one usb device is plugged in you need to know the name of exact Usb device you need to work upon. A wrong selection will lead to wipe your hard disk, so be aware. You can browse to the stored disk image on your hard drive, from the Unetbootin window.

Or alternatively download from the internet, in real time. Although it is a time taking process and may result into error, when larger image is downloaded.

Click OK, and the process of downloading and/or extracting image will start. It will take time depending upon the size of download and/or the file size of ISO image. Once completed, click ‘exit‘.
Plug out the usb storage device safely and plug it into the machine you want to bootRestart it and set that usb storage device to boot first from the BIOS menu which may be F12F8F2 orDel depending upon you machine and build.
You will be greeted with a window as below, from where you can boot into Live Linux Modeand/or Install on Hard Disk from there, directly.

Post Install script example

Scripts add versatility and power to an already strong program. Downloading and installing them is an easy process. This process can also be applied to brushes, plugins, and gradients with some minor variations.
The easiest way is to gather all the commands you need and put them in a text file and make the text file executable.
Start out with implementing the  command line and do this:
touch post_install_script
sudo 775 post_install_script
gedit post_install_script
And you start putting in commands you want to be executed.
Installing packages that are in Ubuntu Software Center.
Start with enabling all repositories and refreshing the software list because the LiveCD is outdated:
sudo sed 's/# deb/deb/' -i /etc/apt/sources.list
sudo apt-get update
Look up inside USC what already is there and check the package name. Examples with VLC and smplayer:
sudo apt-get install vlc
sudo apt-get install smplayer
In the same way of adding software like this you can also remove packages with:
sudo apt-get remove {package_name}
(just be careful to check dependencies first)
PPA for installing nautilus elementary:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:am-monkeyd/nautilus-elementary-ppa sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
Themes
Those are either in USC or have a PPA so you can add these with either one of the 2. For instance I like theequinox themes and I can add them like this:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tiheum/equinox
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-equinox
or the Faenza icon sets:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tiheum/equinox
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install faenza-icon-theme
So you gather all the installation instructions that you want to add and put them in your script each on a new line. You can speed things up by removing duplicate entries: sudo apt-get upgrade does not need to be done with every PPA: you can do that after adding all the PPAs but(!) before you install the software from the PPA.
Theoretically you can have 1 of these script files for all Ubuntu installations but you might need to tweak them for every system.
This is my newest attempt to creating a post install script:
enter image description here
What does this do?
  1. update sources list
  2. remove all directories in my home and create them again in /discworld2/ After that I recreate my home directory directories using symlinks. This way I am able to format my home and keep my files (they are not only on another partition but even on another disc);
  3. install software I want;
  4. set power management the way I want it.
  5. add ppa's I want
After installing I just execute my post_install file and it will run for a long time but it will take care of everything I want (well I will be adding more and more things over time so it will get longer).

Themes Collection for Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail/Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal/Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin/Ubuntu 11.10

Ubuntu by default comes with Ambiance theme and few other themes like Radiance etc. But these themes are not the best out there and you may want to experiment a bit with the appearance of your computer by installing a new theme but often wonder how do I install a new theme in Ubuntu 12.04. This simple tutorial will teach you to install a theme in Ubuntu 12.04 with Unity desktop environment. Follow these simple steps:
Step 1:
Download the theme. If it is zipped, extract it and copy the theme folder to the following location:
~/.themes
If you are using the graphical way to copy it, go to your home folder and on the top panel select View and then select Show hidden files (Ctrl+H). Now you can see .themes directory in your home directory. Copying the theme is equivalent to installing a theme.
Step 2:
Once you have copied the theme in correct place, the next step is to use the newly installed theme. To activate the theme we will use a wonderful tool “My Unity” which is a Unity tweaking tool and can be used for various other configuration changes such as launcher, dash, panel etc. To install My Unity use the following command in terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T):
sudo apt-get install myunity
Once you have installed the My Unity app, you can open it and move to Themes tab. Here you will see all the themes available in ~/.themes directory. Just choose your favourite theme here.

Need Help With Ubuntu
Join Now Only $5.50 USD
GNOME (GNU Network Object Model Environment) is a desktop environment created for the operating system
GNU / Linux Desktop Environment is recognized as the official GNU project. With the announcement of version 3.0 was introduced GNOME-Shell, which integrates various functions into a 'single window.  The desktop area is divided into several parts depending on the activities and workspaces is dynamic: you can add or remove workspaces and you can move any applications in different areas of work, as already happens with Compiz.

Now you can see How  to install GNOME on  Ubuntu 10.4 Lucid Lynx

     First  you have to install
all the dependencies needed to successfully build and run gnome-shell.

     $ sudo apt-get build-dep gnome-shell

   After installing all the packages necessary steps for installing veritable gnome-shell

     $ sudo apt-get install gnome-shell

 Once installed, you can start GNOME-Shell by typing the following command in a terminal:

     $ gnome-shell --replace

GNOME-Shell is still under development and therefore very unstable.
Try it in your Test machine or in a Virtual machine.
