The Perfect Desktop - Ubuntu Studio 8.04


Version 1.0

This tutorial shows how you can set up an Ubuntu Studio 8.04
desktop that is a full-fledged replacement for a Windows desktop, i.e.
that has all the software that people need to do the things they do on
their Windows desktops. The advantages are clear: you get a secure
system without DRM restrictions that works even on old hardware, and
the best thing is: all software comes free of charge.
I want to say first that this is not the only way of setting up such
a system. There are many ways of achieving this goal but this is the
way I take. I do not issue any guarantee that this will work for you!

1 Preliminary Note


To fully replace a Windows desktop, I want the Ubuntu Studio desktop to have the following software installed:
Graphics:



  • The GIMP - free software replacement for Adobe Photoshop
  • F-Spot - full-featured personal photo management application for the GNOME desktop
  • Google Picasa - application for organizing and editing digital photos

Internet:



  • Firefox
  • Opera
  • Flash Player 9
  • FileZilla - multithreaded FTP client
  • Thunderbird -


    email and news client

  • Evolution - combines e-mail, calendar, address book, and task list management functions
  • aMule - P2P file sharing application
  • BitTornado - Bittorrent client
  • Azureus - Java Bittorrent client
  • Pidgin - multi-platform instant messaging client
  • Skype
  • Google Earth
  • Xchat IRC - IRC client

Office:



  • OpenOffice Writer - replacement for Microsoft Word
  • OpenOffice Calc - replacement for Microsoft Excel
  • Adobe Reader
  • GnuCash - double-entry book-keeping personal finance system, similar to Quicken
  • Scribus - open source desktop publishing (DTP) application

Sound & Video:



  • Amarok - audio player
  • Audacity - free, open source, cross platform digital audio editor
  • Banshee - audio player, can encode/decode various formats and synchronize music with Apple iPods
  • MPlayer - media player (video/audio), supports WMA
  • Rhythmbox Music Player - audio player, similar to Apple's iTunes, with support for iPods
  • gtkPod - software similar to Apple's iTunes, supports iPod, iPod nano, iPod shuffle, iPod photo, and iPod mini
  • XMMS - audio player similar to Winamp
  • dvd::rip - full featured DVD copy program
  • Kino - free digital video editor
  • Sound Juicer CD Extractor - CD ripping tool, supports various audio codecs
  • VLC Media Player - media player (video/audio)
  • Helix Player - media player, similar to the Real Player
  • Totem - media player (video/audio)
  • Xine - media player, supports various formats; can play DVDs
  • Brasero - CD/DVD burning program
  • K3B - CD/DVD burning program
  • Multimedia Codecs

Programming:



  • KompoZer - WYSIWYG HTML editor, similar to Macromedia Dreamweaver, but not as feature-rich (yet)
  • Bluefish - text editor, suitable for many programming and markup languages
  • Quanta Plus - web development environment, including a WYSIWYG editor

Other:



  • VMware Server - lets you run your old Windows desktop as
    a virtual machine under your Linux desktop, so you don't have to
    entirely abandon Windows

  • TrueType fonts
  • Java
  • Read-/Write support for NTFS partitions

Lots of our desired applications are available in the Ubuntu
repositories, and some of these applications have been contributed by
the Ubuntu community.
I will use the username falko in this tutorial. Please replace it with your own username.

2 Installing The Base System


The installation of the base system is easy as 1-2-3 because the
Ubuntu Studio installer doesn't offer a lot of options to choose from,
so you cannot go wrong.





sr_adspace_id = 4098007;
sr_adspace_width = 300;
sr_adspace_height = 250;
sr_adspace_type = "graphic";
sr_ad_new_window = true;













Download the Ubuntu Studio iso image from http://ubuntustudio.org/downloads, burn it onto a DVD, and boot your computer from it.


Select your language:

Then select Install Ubuntu Studio:

Choose your language again (?):

Then select your location:

(Javascript must be enabled in your browser to view the large image as an image overlay.)
Choose a keyboard layout (you will be asked to press a few keys, and
the installer will try to detect your keyboard layout based on the keys
you pressed):

The installer checks the installation CD, your hardware, and
configures the network with DHCP if there is a DHCP server in the
network:

You can accept the default hostname or specify your own one:

Now you have to partition your hard disk. For simplicity's sake I will create one big partition (with the mount point /) and a little swap partition so I select Guided - use entire disk
(of course, the partitioning is totally up to you - if you like, you
can create more than just one big partition, and you can also use LVM):

(Javascript must be enabled in your browser to view the large image as an image overlay.)
Select the disk that you want to partition:

When you're finished, hit Yes when you're asked Write the changes to disks?:

(Javascript must be enabled in your browser to view the large image as an image overlay.)
Afterwards, your new partitions are being created and formatted:
