Trusty Tahr

Filed under: computing — Tags: , , , , — Zhixian @ 22:16:11 pm

I just installed Ubuntu 14.04, Trusty Tahr onto my laptop.

The following is a list of must install software for me:

  1. Shutter
    For taking and managing screen dumps.

    1. Install from Ubuntu Software Center (search term: shutter)
  2. Google Chrome
    An alternate browser to FireFox.

    1. Download from https://www.google.com/chrome/browser/
    2. Double-click the .deb file to install.
  3. Pidgin Internet Messenger
    I find this to be better than Empathy Internet Messaging that is bundled in Trusty Tahr.

    1. Install from Ubuntu Software Center (search term: pidgin)
  4. VLC media player
    I find this to be better than the video player that is bundled in Trusty Tahr.

    1. Install from Ubuntu Software Center (search term: vlc)
  5. VirtualBox
    For my OS virtualization needs.

    1. Download from https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads
    2. Double-click the .deb file to install
  6. DOSBox Emulator
    A DOS emulator that I use to play some of my favourite DOS games.

    1. Install from Ubuntu Software Center (search term: dosbox)
