Ubuntu 13.04: Post Install Setup

After the installation of Ubuntu, you want to start being productive as fast as possible. There are three things you need to do:

  1. Install the Programs you need
  2. Remove the unwanted pre-installed Programs (for example Amazon Integration, Rhythm box)
  3. Install all System Updates

While you could use the Ubuntu Store to install all programs by clicking through various screens. You will have a great performance gain by using the console and the “apt-get” package manager.

In the spirit of never having to repeat myself, I simply collected all the console commands I needed to complete the three steps.
