Blogparade: Ubuntu installed, and then?

Picking the idea frmo Virtualpixel.de I hereby present what I am doing after installing Ubuntu.

Depending on my time, I did everything already. Setting every programm new, leave the home-partition, as it was, and everything between. But a few things are done (nearly) every time:

Install programs

  • Thunderbird + Plugins
  • Gimp
  • Chromium (Begining with the next installation) + Plugins
  • Gnome-Do
  • KeepassX
  • Banshee
  • GnuCash
  • Xmind
  • Scribus
  • Dropbox (Using a PPA)
  • VLC Player
  • VirtualBox (Using a PPA)
  • ubuntu-restricted-extras
  • Ding
  • TrueCrypt
  • Apache Server + PHP + MySql + phpMyAdmin
  • vim

Install Update

Recover Data

  • Documents
  • Photos
  • Music
  • ~/bin
  • ~/development

Recover Settings

  • Thunderbird
  • Chromium (especially my bookmarks)

Set startup programmes

  • Decrypt my documents (with are in a TruCrypt container, that is synced via Dropbox)
  • Gnome-Do

Some more settings

  • Use Neo systemwide
  • Wlan
  • Compiz
