Things To Do After Installing Linux Mint

Good evening and welcome to my blog :)
Today I want to share about : Things to do after installing Ubuntu / Linux Mint

1. Upgrade your system :)
Code : sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

2. Install music player (Just if you don't like the native one)
Code : sudo apt-get install audacious
NB : Why I recommend audacious? This music player is so simple and also very user-friendly :)

3. Install dock
Code : sudo apt-get install docky
Code apt-get install cairo-dock-core
Just choose what's your favorite :)

4. Install Cheese
What is Cheese? Cheese is application to capture picture or video from your WebCam
Code : sudo apt-get install cheese

5. If you are a tutor. You can give screencast to your student :)
and I recommend a good application here : Kazam
Code : sudo apt-get install kazam

6. If you had dual-os with windows you can edit the Grub menu if you don't want your grub has too much menu.
Code : gedit /boot/grub/grub.cfg
Then, remove line which contain "menuentry.....", but careful if you remove the first line that contain (Linux Mint XX --class.........), YOU CAN'T ENTER YOUR LINUX MINT ANYMORE and you have to reinstall grub.

7. Mount your NTFS partition (if you dual-os with windows)
Code : sudo blkid
Look for your NTFS Partition in TYPE="ntfs" then copy UUID of your ntfs partition
Back to terminal and type : sudo mkdir /media/data
Then : sudo gedit /etc/fstab
Paste this code to your fstab, put in bottom of line
Code : UUID="your uuid" /media/data ntfs defaults,rw,gid=1000,uid=1000 0 0
Restart your system.
NB: when you paste your UUID, paste it without quotes.

That's all what I can tell about :)
Thanks for visiting my blog :)
Have a nice day :)
