    Linux ( Ubuntu 8.10 I386 ) App's

    Ok, this is probably the only time I will ever ask for software for a computer but I just installed Ubuntu 8.10 on an external hard drive. I have nothing but the standard things that come with it. I'm installing a browser but I need the following ( the best of the following in your opinion linux users. )

    IRC Client ( Not KSirc )
    IM Client ( That I can use aim with. )
    BitTorrent Client

    Is there a type of command line interface like Command Prompt?


    Anything else you guys think is essential.

    Every man for himself. You trust no one but yourself, if you want something done you do it your self don't rely on others. You watch your own back, you fight your own fights its you against the world.

    Install "Wine". It allows you to run EXE's on linux.

    and the command prompt is called terminal.

    wine kinda sucks though, here's a link to all the software you can install on ubuntu:
    terminal is in main menu and I think dev. or something, or it's next to firefox on the menu bar
    http://packages.debian.org/stable/

    debian=the OS ubuntu is based on

    to install this software locate a package you want and open terminal

    once in terminal type "sudo su" without the quotes and it will ask you for your password, type it in, now you are "root"
    then apt-get install package name

    or to not use sudo su in the beginning type sudo apt-get install package

    for example:

    xchat is a popular IRC client for debian (ie ubuntu) so to install it:

    sudo apt-get install xchat

    it will do everything for you!

    any help just PM me

    and just for your own info zeus, ubuntu is running gnome, so KDE stuff won't work unless you install KDE (but KDE sucks ass)

    Well I got pretty much all I need. Just wanted to check this out, I'm gonna make it so I can dual boot I'll check on this now and then. I think it might be easier to learn Perl and Python maybe because its mean't for linux I think.

    Anyways putting in my other hard drive now and coming back to Windows XP. Thanks for the help.

    Nice Idea. I Tri-booted with Vista, XP, and Linux...then the linux partition fucked up and I never fixed it. Whenever I need linux, I just boot from my CD.

    liveCD!!!!!, lol, my eee pc is running ubuntu 8.10, but I really fucked up a few drivers for the wifi, so I plan on reinstalling it on to an SD card and using the built in partition for gpredict (tracks amateur radio satellites and ISS)

    sudo passwd root

    then change the root password, so you can use su without sudo.



    • xchat-gnome - IRC
    • Pidgin - IM
    • Deluge - Torrent
    • Wine - Sucks, don't use it.
    • KDE also sucks, anything QT does
    • Xfce is a lighter desktop environment, kinda like gnome
    • LXDE is even moreso like the above
    • Pulseaudio is your friend
    • Sudo can make it or break it for some people - I personally don't even have it set up, I just use su and su -c
    • Building your own kernel can be rewarding, as it's pretty easy
    • Wine again sucks, one of the biggest security hazards
    • Wine sucks
    • wine sucks
    • wine sucks


    To build own kernel: Download the source, extract it, cd into it, type "make gconfig", press save at the top, then exit, then type "cp .config /boot/config-KERNELARCH, for example, if my kernel was linux-2.6.28.7, I'd do (sudo if not in su) cp .config /boot/config-2.6.28.7, then type make, it'll take fucking forever, then type make modules_install, then type make install. then you'll notice at the main grub menu you'll be able to select the new kernel.

    Note that you need to be superuser during all but the make gconfig and regular make.
