Ubuntu Gutsy Step1

I just bought Dell Inspiron 1720 for my private note PC.
I certainly decided to delete Vista and then install Ubuntu for the box.
This is step by step set up for my reminder.
I skip writing the way to add apt line or so as it is too easy procedure to forget.

*Sound - you need to install the following package to enable the sound

$ sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-generic

1) I suggest to visit here for your little preparation

2) Font installation

% sudo cp /usr/share/fonts/truetype/ipa/ipag.ttf .
% sudo fontforge -script
% sudo mkdir /usr/share/fonts/truetype/mplus
% sudo mv M*IPAG.ttf /usr/share/fonts/truetype/mplus/.
% sudo fc-cache -f -v /usr/share/fonts/truetype/mplus

#Mikacha for the same step

3) Then go to forum to see what you want to do.

4) Adobe related s/w
Flash capability is important. Visit adobe page to download the flash player.
