To Do List After installing Ubuntu 9.04 aka Jaunty Jackalope

SkyHi @ Monday, September 14, 2009
This post is a follow up of this. In Ubuntu Jaunty Jackalope , as you would expect from any upgrade, the packages are a bit different, so i decided to write the Jaunty’s To Do List on its own. So here you go :

1 – Expand the Software Repository List

First of all, lets make Ubuntu “see” more packages. Go to the terminal and edit your sources.list with :

sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

Here is the content of my sources.list which I think is quite complete to have all the necessary applications you could ever need. So delete the whole content of your sources list and replace it with the content of mine

Save it. Go to the Terminal and type:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

Now all your programs will run on the last version.

2 – Anti-Virus

Windows equivalent : AVG AntiVirus, NAV, TrendMicro, F-Prot, Kaspersky, …

Ubuntu equivalent : Avast


wget && sudo dpkg -i avast4workstation_1.3.0-2_i386.deb

Access it through Accessories → avast! Antivirus .

3 – Essential tools for compiling from sources

sudo apt-get install build-essential checkinstall cdbs devscripts dh-make fakeroot libxml-parser-perl check avahi-daemon

4 – Java runtime environment

Java is a very important thing to install, now that many programs like Azureus need it to run. So type:

sudo apt-get install sun-java6-fonts sun-java6-jre sun-java6-plugin equivs ttf-sazanami-gothic ttf-sazanami-mincho

5 – More Fonts

Here you will find a bunch of fonts you can install on your system, but remember that you don’t need to install all of them

sudo mkdir -p /usr/lib/X11/fonts/Type1 && sudo apt-get install msttcorefonts
&& sudo apt-get install ttf-larabie-straight ttf-larabie-deco mplayer-fonts xfonts-terminus-dos xfonts-terminus xfonts-terminus-oblique
xfonts-mona tv-fonts ttf-tuffy ttf-sjfonts ttf-sil-padauk ttf-sil-ezra ttf-paktype ttf-georgewilliams ttf-fifthhorseman-dkg-handwriting
ttf-farsiweb ttf-essays1743 ttf-opensymbol ttf-nafees ttf-mgopen ttf-gentium ttf-freefont ttf-dustin ttf-devanagari-fonts ttf-dejavu-extra
ttf-dejavu-core ttf-dejavu ttf-bpg-georgian-fonts ttf-bitstream-vera ttf-alee

6 – Ubuntu Control Panel

Ubuntu Tweak

Ubuntu Tweak allows you to tweak your system settings, all in one place. You can install new applications, customize your desktop settings, configure your startup applications, changing the system filetype association and many more tweaks in this single application.

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-tweak

Then access it through Applications → System Tools → Ubuntu Tweak

7 – Nice Right Click Sub-Menus

For some useful right click menus in nautilus

sudo apt-get install nautilus-actions nautilus-gksu nautilus-image-converter nautilus-open-terminal
nautilus-script-audio-convert nautilus-script-collection-svn nautilus-script-manager nautilus-sendto nautilus-share nautilus-wallpaper

App Runner

App Runner is a small open source utility that makes it very easy to run any type of program/executable/script on any distro/OS that uses the nautilus file manager: Debian/Ubuntu/Super OS/Fedora/etc

wget && sudo dpkg -i App_Runner_0.2.deb

Then right-click the file -> Scripts -> Run This App or Run This App (root)

8 – Multimedia

Windows equivalent : windows media player, real player, vlc, mplayer

Ubuntu equivalent : vlc, mplayer, helix player

To have Ubuntu playing all kinds of stuff, you need to install many codecs. So on the Terminal, type:

* Installing vlc and mplayer (plays almost everything):

sudo apt-get install vlc mplayer

* Common packs

sudo apt-get install non-free-codecs libxine1-ffmpeg gxine mencoder mpeg2dec vorbis-tools id3v2 mpg321 mpg123

gstreamer0.10-schroedinger gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly-multiverse totem-gstreamer

* More programs

sudo apt-get install gstreamer-dbus-media-service gstreamer-tools ubuntu-restricted-extras

* Enable dvd support

sudo aptitude install libdvdcss2 && sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/./

* Flash

sudo apt-get install gsfonts gsfonts-x11 flashplugin-nonfree

9. Tweak your eyecandy

Ubuntu 9.04 comes with compiz fusion effects OOTB but doesn’t offer a way to customize them.

In a terminal copy/paste this:

sudo apt-get install simple-ccsm

Now navigate to System → Preferences → Simple CompizConfig Settings Manager .

Klik hier om een link te hebben waarmee u dit artikel later terug kunt lezen.ING HomeBank op Ubuntu 9.04

Voor Ubuntu 8.04 en 8.10 bleef de installatie van ING HomeBank gelijk. De nieuwste Ubuntu telg 9.04 vraagt één extra commando.

Om te beginnen, volg de volledige handleiding voor 8.04 en 8.10 64-bit.

Like promised a blog post about how to instal ING HomeBank on a Ubuntu 8.04 64-bit system. En nu verder in het Nederlands om te voorkomen dat de Engelstaligen het volgende uur niet meer zouden bijkomen van het lachen en deze blog onder het mapje “grappig” van hun favorieten klasseren. Voor de installatie van de 32-bit versie op Ubuntu 8.04 kan je nog steeds hier terecht.

Deze methode is hetzelfde voor Ubuntu versie 8.10.

1. Nog steeds is het installatie bestand (een *.deb) te downloaden op deze pagina van ING.Be. Sla het bestand op in je persoonlijke map (home folder).

2. Open een terminal venster en voer volgend commando uit (op moment van schrijven is de versie 3.33):
sudo dpkg -i HomeBank333.deb

3. Ga nu naar /opt/HomeBank:
cd /opt/HomeBank

4. Als je te vlug op de zaken voorloopt en je start HomeBank krijg je deze fout: “error while loading shared libraries: : cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory“. HomeBank heeft nodig, maar Ubuntu bezit enkel We verhelpen dit probleempje door een symbolische link van versie 3 naar versie 4 aan te leggen.
sudo ln -s /usr/lib32/ /usr/lib32/

5. Een volgende fout die je zou krijgen is “Error while loading shared libraries: : cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory“. Om dit te voorkomen dienen we nog een symbolische link te leggen (met dank aan Peter!):
sudo ln -s /usr/lib32/ /usr/lib32/

6. Als je HomeBank nu zou starten krijg je helaas nog één foutmelding: “error while loading shared libraries: : cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory“. Dit komt door het ontbreken van “libstdc++2.10-glibc2.2″. Ubuntu zelf levert dit helaas niet meer mee. We gaan het pakket handmatig downloaden en installeren. (Met dank aan Peter voor de tip!)
sudo dpkg -i --force-architecture libstdc++2.10-glibc2.2_2.95.4-27_i386.deb

7. Als alles goed is zou het nu moeten werken. Start de module met:
cd /opt/HomeBank

Tip 1
Ik voeg aan het menu “Toepassingen – Internet” steeds ook een snelkoppeling toe naar de veiligheidsmodule. Dit is niet noodzakelijk, maar eens zo handig:
- klik rechts op het menu (Toepassingen),
- klik op “Menu’s bewerken”,
- ga naar “Internet” en klik op “Nieuw item”,
– Type: Applicatie
– Naam: HomeBank
– Commando: /opt/HomeBank/HBSecurity
– Als je wil kan je nog een icoontje meegeven door op het plaatje met de veer te klikken
- klaar!

Tip 2
Wil je niet naar het bankkantoor lopen achter nieuwe opstartcodes als je een nieuwe Ubuntu versie geïnstalleerd hebt kan je de bestanden “**********.bbl en .hbrc” van je oude installatie kopiëren en plakken in je nieuw systeem. Beide bestanden zijn te vinden in je persoonlijke map. Let op: om .hbrc te zien moet je eerst “Verborgen bestanden tonen” aanvinken in het menu “Beeld”.

Helaas krijg je de fout “HBSecGUI: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory“.
Om dit op te lossen installeren we het pakket “ia32-libs”:

sudo apt-get install ia32-libs

Vervolgens zou ING HomeBank probleemloos moeten opstarten!


In de repo’s van Ubuntu zit standaard reeds een pakket met de naam “HomeBank”. Dit is echter niét de HomeBank van ING en zal dus niet werken!
Om te voorkomen dat Ubuntu dit pakket zal upgraden, dien je dit te “locken” via Synaptic package manager:

Zoek naar “HomeBank”. Selecteer het pakket en in het menu “Package” vink je “Lock Version” aan. Dit zal voorkomen dat ING HomeBank overschreven wordt.

Even though most of the people don't know about it, there is a project on Linux which allows you to connect your Zen mp3 player on Linux. Developers are working quite hard at the moment to get a new release out and which also supports my Zen 2.0. I am not using usb-ohci (the USB module for USB 2.0) as it makes my system unstable after a while so I only upload songs using USB 1.1 (even if it is slower, at least it works all the time which is the most important to me). Make sure that you have a system which is properly supporting USB (recompile your kernel if necessary to allow more modules).

Regarding software, make sure you have installed : libusb and hotplug. For distributions using packages, you will also need the 'devel' versions (dev for Debian) if you want to be able to properly compile your source and the application. Make also sure you installed CVS as you will need it to download the lastest up to date version of libnjb. This is indeed the project name which deals with your player. Concerning the software with a nice GUI, I chose Gnomad2 (screenshot below). You could also use GnomeDap which does nearly the same job but I found it much less stable.

Begin by installing libnjb. You will have to get the latest sources from CVS. You can create a little script cvs_libnjb by example, in which you can copy the following content (you could also just use the command line but as I tend to get the sources every 2 days for testing, I preferred using a script):

cvs login
cvs -z3 co libnjb

Run this and press return when it prompts for the password. It will then create a local directory called : libnjb. As root go in this directory and do:

./configure ; make ; make install ; ldconfig

If you get a compilation error, you might have forgotten to install the developement libraries from libusb, install them, delete that directory then grab the sources from CVS once more (this is my recommended method). Once compiled, it will install the brand new libraries in /usr/local/lib/libnjb.*.

You will then have to set up the hotplug and devfs part (if using it). The best way is to proceed as follows (still being in the libnjb directory) :

cat nomad.usermap >> /etc/hotplug/usb.usermap ; cp nomadjukebox /etc/hotplug/usb/ ; chmod a+x /etc/hotplug/usb/nomadjukebox

If you have a hotplug service, now might be a good idea to restart it. The commands that we just typed will allow your system to properly recognise when your Zen is connected to Linux and will run the nomadjukebox script with the correct permissions to allow any user on your system to use it. If you get an error at this stage, you could either not have hotplug installed, or missing the usb directory under the hotplug tree which can be easily solved by doing mkdir /etc/hotplug/usb. Make then sure that you type again those commands.

The next step is to install gnomad2, I have used the most recent one while I was writing this article which was 2.0.1. Download the latest and then do :

cd gnomad-2.x.x/ ; ./configure ; make ; make install ; ldconfig

Congratulations! You just got your Zen properly configured under Linux. You can now connect it. Make you you always connect it before running Gnomad2 (it might sound logical but it's worth mentioning). Leave the Zen connected while Gnomad2 is launched. If anything crashes (either the player or the application), make sure you close Gnomad2 first then disconnect your Zen from the USB port, shutdown your player and you can then reconnect it and run Gnomad2 again.

The rest is quite simple, use an mp3 encoder (grip for example) which supports id3v2 tags (as mp3 tags get written to the mp3 file), failing that you might get incomplete names in your songs when you transfer them to your Zen. Transferring files from the Zen to my harddrive doesn't work properly for me (and I didn't have time to really investigate the matter).

I will update this article quite soon with more information. You must use the CVS version from libnjg as the current tarball is dated back from 2002 and so is too old to support the latest players. CVS activity is quite intense, with an update at least every 2 days. You can subscribe to the mailing list or read the archives at the following url : libnjb-users.

Klik hier om een link te hebben waarmee u dit artikel later terug kunt lezen.Managing a Creative Zen mp3 jukebox with Gnomad2
1 Installation

Install the "gnomad2" package.

2 Transferring files with Gnomad2

Plug the jukebox into a USB port. Wait a few seconds for the jukebox to recognise the connection. If you wish to make sure that the jukebox is recognised, open a terminal window and enter the "lsusb" command to list USB devices. You should see something like this.

$ lsusb

Bus 005 Device 009: ID 041e:411b Creative Technology, Ltd Zen Touch

Run Gnomad2. If you are using the Gnome desktop, you can find it in the menu:

Applications -> Sound & Video -> Gnomad2

You may see some information popup windows while Gnomad2 scans for music files: "track metadata" on your computer and "jukebox library" on your jukebox.

Gnomad2 opens with the "Music transfer" tab active. There are two list boxes - one for your computer and one for your jukebox. The computer list contains hyperlinks that enable you to navigate between directories by double-clicking. Select a directory for storing mp3 files. Transferring files is easy. Just highlight the files you wish to transfer, and click on one of the arrow buttons between the two lists. The upper arrow button transfers files from computer to jukebox, and the lower arrow button transfers files from jukebox to computer.

3 Troubleshooting

3.1 Gnomad2 does not communicate with jukebox

3.1.1 Make sure that you belong to the "audio" group

Enter the command "groups" in a terminal window. You should see something like this.

$ groups
chris dialout cdrom floppy audio video plugdev

You must switch user ("su") to root if you need to add yourself to the audio group. Use the "adduser" command. For instance, you would add user "chris" to the "audio" group like this.

$ su
(password for user root)
# adduser chris audio
# exit

3.1.2 Try running Gnomad2 from a terminal window

Look for error messages in the terminal window.

$ gnomad2

You may get these messages like these in the terminal window.

This is a PDE device
Device was not connected.

You may also get error message in popup windows.

Could not open jukebox:
usb_set_configuration: Operation not permitted

3.1.3 Try running Gnomad2 as user root

Run Gnomad2 from a terminal window.

$ su
(password for user root)
# gnomad2

If Gnomad2 runs OK as user root, the problem may be in the file /etc/udev/rules.d/libnjb.rules (from the package libnjb5). These rules control the degree of access to the USB port. Open the file in a text editor (eg Nano) as user root.

# nano /etc/udev/rules.d/libnjb.rules

Look for the "MODE" entries which set access permissions for the USB port. A typical entry looks like this.

# Creative Nomad Jukebox Zen Touch
SYSFS{idVendor}=="041e", SYSFS{idProduct}=="411b", MODE="660", GROUP="audio"

If the MODE is set to "066", edit the file and change it to MODE="770".

# Creative Nomad Jukebox Zen Touch
SYSFS{idVendor}=="041e", SYSFS{idProduct}=="411b", MODE="770", GROUP="audio"

Save the file and exit the text editor. (In Nano, the commands are ctrl-O and ctrl-X.) Restart udev with the new permissions.

# /etc/init.d/udev restart

Exit from user root and test the system as a normal user.

# exit
$ gnomad2

Here we try to make installing Ubuntu Satanic Edition as easy as possible. If you're an advanced user, see the Quick Install guide.
Live CD

The good news is that you no longer need to install SE over the top of Ubuntu Christian Edition; we now have our own Live CD, which contains the operating system, our dark themes, plus some heavy music (which you can play backwards and do whatever you hear it tell you to do). See the following page for details:

* Ubuntu Satanic Live CD

Installing onto an Existing Ubuntu PC

You can also install Ubuntu Satanic Edition on your existing Ubuntu computer. It is available for Ubuntu Jaunty 9.04, Intrepid 8.10, Hardy 8.04, Gutsy 7.10, Feisty 7.04 and Edgy 6.10 including both Gnome (Ubuntu) and KDE (Kubuntu) variants.

The recommended way to install Ubuntu SE is from our secure APT repository. This makes installation, upgrading and removal very simple. If you don't want to use this then you can get the packages and themes from the download page or the individual wallpapers from the screenshots page.
Download the Secure Key

Ubuntu SE is stored in a secure APT repository, so you'll need to download the key before installation. This is standard practice and if you haven't done it before it's very simple; just do the following:

Run a terminal window (Applications->Accessories->Terminal) and cut and paste the following command into it (note that you cut the text by highlighting it with the left mouse button and paste it into the terminal with the middle mouse button):

wget -q -O- | sudo apt-key add -

Adding the Repository

Now we'll add the software repository to your system.

Go to System->Administration->Software Sources->Third Party Software->Add and enter the following APT line:

deb jaunty main

Note: If you using an older version of Ubuntu or you're not sure what version you have, click here.
Installing the packages

To install Ubuntu SE with one click, just select the version you require for your monitor:
Install Ubuntu Satanic Edition [4:3] [widescreen]
Install Kubuntu Satanic Edition [4:3] [widescreen]

For the Ubuntu screensaver plugin, install: eternal-ubuntu

Most directly connected printers are plug n' play and just work automatically.

Our Linksys 3-port print server supports the LPR/LPD protocol, as do most print servers. Use LPR/LPD instead of SMB protocol as there have been 'issues' using SMB in the past. You need to know the LPD queue names used by your print server. Linksys often uses 'L1', 'L2' and 'L3' (case sensitive).

System -> Administration -> Printing -> New

For LPD print servers, if you don't see an option for LPD printers, select "Other" under Devices and enter the URI in the form of:


Internal note: The Lexmark C510 is on print server 'ps' on queue (port) 'L1' using the PPD (printer description) file from the Support folder. The Pan KX-2023 is on 'L2'. The Oki 520 is on 'L3'.

The PDF printer is via SMB using a generic postscript driver.
PDF Printer

The default configuration in 8.10 is simpler than in the past. Just select Print -> To File -> PDF.

You can also install cups-pdf and do it the previous way if you wish. If you do, there will be a PDF Printer detected. Select the Generic -> PDF Printer driver. The output files will be in your home folder, under the PDF folder. If you have any trouble with this, try creating the ~/PDF folder manually.
NVidia Graphics Drivers

First, try System -> Administration -> Hardware Drivers.

Try both nVidia driver versions if the newest one doesn't work properly.

Otherwise, and only as a last resort, you may need to download and install the drivers from nVidia. You probably shouldn't use this procedure unless you really have to:

Download the latest driver from the NVidia web site then switch to a text-mode virtual console by hitting ctrl-alt-F1. Then enter the following commands:

sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop
sudo sh ./

Edit the /etc/default/linux-restricted-modules-common file and add nv:



System -> Preferences -> Appearance -> Fonts (Sub-Pixel Smoothing) -> Details (96dpi, Light Hinting)(try actual dpi of your monitor)

Gnome Terminal window placement

gnome-terminal --geometry=120x50+450+150

Panels (right-click, Properties) - 28 pixels

Startup Applications - Add Tomboy, Pidgin and Firefox to start up automatically

Preferred Applications - Thunderbird, F-Spot

Screensaver - Lock screen
Nautilus Options

Launch nautilus - Select Edit -> Preferences.

Media - Set your preferences for what happens when you plug in external media, cameras, etc. here.

f-spot-import %h
ln -s /home/extra/Photos /home/gcooper/Photos # optionally link your existing photos library

Delete Context Option - Click on the behavior tab. Under the "Trash" section, select the option that reads "Include a Delete command that bypasses Trash"
Floppy Drive

If you still have a floppy drive, you may want to format floppies once in a while. You can add the gfloppy tool to the menu to make it easier to use:

System -> Preferences -> Main Menu -> Accessories

Then select the Floppy Formatter option and close.

If you have any trouble viewing fax files in the .tif format, try using the Evince viewer.
Network Faxing

See this page.
F-Spot Photo Manager

If you want to move your F-Spot photo database to a new computer or user home directory, you will normally only have to move the Photos folder plus the ~/.gnome2/f-spot folder to the same locations in the new home directory.
Installing VMwareTools

sudo apt-get install open-vm-tools

Installing VMware Server

If you are upgrading from VMware Server 1.x, uninstall it first with:


Download the free VMware Server software from here as a binary (.tar.gz) file.

sudo apt-get install build-essential xinetd linux-headers-`uname -r`
tar -xzvf VMware-server-2.0.0-122956.i386.tar.gz
cd vmware-server-distrib/
sudo ./

Then after a successful installation:

cd ..
sudo rm -rf vmware-server-distrib/

You will want to add a valid (your) username as the VMware Administrator.

I don't enable NAT, and I sometimes keep my VMs in my Home Directory, but otherwise I use the defaults presented.

You may find that you get an error when configuring VMware:

Accessing Network (SMB) Shares

If the 'smbfs' package is not already installed, install it like this:

sudo apt-get install smbfs

Create a script that mounts your SMB shares at the mount point you specify in the script. I named mine 'mymounts' and I keep it in a ~/bin folder with the rest of my scripts. You could also just keep it on your desktop and forego the automatic execution below.

# ~/bin/mymounts
# Store this file in your home directory with 700 perms as it contains SMB password
# Set variables here:
# End of variables
mkdir -p ~/mnt/$SHARENAME1
mkdir -p ~/mnt/$SHARENAME2
smbumount ~/mnt/$SHARENAME1 > /dev/null 2>&1
smbmount //$SMBSERVER/$SHARENAME1 ~/mnt/$SHARENAME1 -o username=$SMBUSER,password=$SMBPASS
smbumount ~/mnt/$SHARENAME2 > /dev/null 2>&1
smbmount //$SMBSERVER/$SHARENAME2 ~/mnt/$SHARENAME2 -o username=$SMBUSER,password=$SMBPASS

Make it executeable:

chmod +x ~/bin/mymounts

To make it run automatically when you log in:

Klik hier om een link te hebben waarmee u dit artikel later terug kunt lezen.How to add Medibuntu

Medibuntu (Multimedia, Entertainment & Distractions In Ubuntu) is a repository of packages that cannot be included into the Ubuntu distribution for legal reasons (copyright, license, patent, etc).

Add Medibuntu to your sources.list, as well as its GPG key to your keyring. Make sure to use the correct sources.list that corresponds to your current distribution.

sudo wget --output-document=/etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list

Then, add the GPG Key:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install medibuntu-keyring && sudo apt-get update

Some people don't want to install non-free software on their computer as explained in the "Free and Non-Free components" section. We will explain how to exclude getting packages from the non-free component of the Medibuntu repository. You should understand that if you remove the non-free component, you will NOT have access to these packages: * acroread (Acrobat Reader -- not really needed because you can use free software, such as Evince, to read pdfs) * alsa-firmware -- needed for some audio cards * AMR and FAAC support in MPlayer and FFmpeg * googleearth * restricted video codecs (ppc-codecs, w32codecs, w64codecs) * Skype To exclude getting packages from the non-free component of the Medibuntu repository, type the following command:

sudo sed -e 's/ non-free//' -i /etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list
