How To Install Ubuntu Linux

By: Iptisam “Sam” Petzold Brown Mackie College SSE0050 Due: March 22, 2016

How to Install Ubuntu Linux Ubuntu is a version of Linux created to be easy to use, especially for those who are new to Linux. It has a Linux kernel based on Debian and is distributed as a free and open source software, not to mention that it is one of the most popular distributions for the desktop and server. Ubuntu also runs on phones. Ubuntu offers a LiveCD environment that lets you run the operating system from a media without making any changes to your hard drives. This is a pretty cool feature because you can essentially test-drive the OS before you actually install it. Once you create a bootable USB installation media, you can plug it into any computer, boot into Ubuntu, and download any data on the usable/ data storage partition. Before using Linux, my suggestion is that you brush up on your familiarity working with commands in the command line, because Ubuntu primarily uses the command line for most everything… then good luck and enjoy!
Required supplies: * Downloaded ISO image (derives its name from the group’s standard for optical disc file systems, ISO 9660) of Ubuntu * Universal Serial Bus (USB) Bootable Ubuntu Installation Media (Thumb Drive 2GB or larger) * A laptop running Windows7 (with partitioned hard drive). * ***Possibly one or all of these programs installed to help you achieve the items required above: Startup Disk Creator, Partition Magic, & Gnome Partition Editor (GParted).***
Pre-Installation:
1)Create a bootable installation media prior to this installation on a thumb drive that is at least 2GB, but preferably larger, from ISO image downloaded on your computer. (Use Startup Disk Creator or Partition Magic which are both good programs to help you create bootable media…...

How to Install Above Ground Pools

...How to Install Above Ground Pools A new pool is no fun until it is full of water and installed properly. My husband and I help install two swimming pools per summer for needy families in our community. We have been doing this for six years and it never fails to put a smile on my face the first time I see kids jumping and splashing in the pools we install. In fact, nothing will make me madder than seeing an incorrectly installed pool. It is much better and much cheaper to do it right the first time. These are the basic guidelines to help you install your above ground pool. Before you do anything, make sure you have plenty of people helping you. It will go faster and be more fun if you get a crew together. Preparing the foundation of your pool will be the first step. Remove any sod or rocks that would be beneath your pool. You will also need to remove any sod or rocks from around your pool, up to at least six feet. That means you will have a six foot dirt road around your pool. Once the sod and rocks are gone, you will need to level out the ground by digging up the dirt until you have an even area underneath and around your pool. You can measure and level the ground with a level or a transit. When the ground is level, you will want to lay a foundation under your pool. Sand is the most traditional foundation that people use. The sand acts like a barrier between your liner and the ground. Now you are ready to assemble your pool. Installation instructions vary depending on...

How to Install a Controller

...come up with the concept of the Cisco Unified Wireless Network (CUWN) solution, which helps make it easier to manage such large scale deployments. WLC is a device that assumes a central role in the CUWN. Traditional roles of access points, such as association or authentication of wireless clients, are done by the WLC. Access points, called Lightweight Access Points (LAPs) in the unified environment, register themselves with a WLC and tunnel all the management and data packets to the WLCs, which then switch the packets between wireless clients and the wired portion of the network. All the configurations are done on the WLC. LAPs download the entire configuration from WLCs and act as a wireless interface to the clients. For more information on how a LAP registers with a WLC, refer to the document Lightweight AP (LAP) Registration to a Wireless LAN Controller. Q. What is CAPWAP? A. In controller software release 5.2 or later, Cisco lightweight access points use the IETF standard Control and Provisioning of Wireless Access Points protocol (CAPWAP) in order to communicate between the controller and other lightweight access points on the network. Controller software releases prior to 5.2 use the Lightweight Access Point Protocol (LWAPP) for these communications. CAPWAP, which is based on LWAPP, is a standard, interoperable protocol that enables a controller to manage a collection of wireless access points. CAPWAP is being implemented in controller software release 5.2 for these......

Differences Between Ubuntu and Fedora Linux Operating Systems

...Ubuntu is the most popular Linux distribution, Fedora is the fourth most popular. Fedora is based on Red Hat Linux and uses the RPM package manager while Ubuntu is based on Debian and uses APT. Both distributions release a new version every 6 months but there's a difference in their long term support models, Ubuntu offers support for 18 months after a version is released and also releases long term support versions every two years that are supported for 5 years. Fedora offers a shorter support period of only 13 months. Fedora’s default desktop is GNOME 3.2.1 and requires 3D capable graphics cards. Ubuntu’s default desktop is unity, which is available in 2D and 3D and uses a standard GNOME based interface that is designed to be a universal interface for desktops, tablets and smartphones. Fedora is leaned more towards developers and testing software where as ubuntu is leaned more towards the average user and stable software. According to online surveys Ubuntu is the most popular Linux distribution. The latest version of Ubuntu was downloaded 81,063 from CNet. Fedora is now downloaded from its own website, an earlier edition saw 10,000 downloads in the first 24 hours after release. Different hardware can affect the comparative performance of Fedora and Ubuntu. Some benchmark tests suggest that Ubuntu boots faster while Fedora is faster to shut down. Fedora won more of these tests than Ubuntu, but many of these were practical ties in performance. Under Ubuntu, software management...

...UBUNTU! An Inspiring Story About an African Tradition of Teamwork and Collaboration By Dr. Bob Nelson and Dr. Stephen Lundin In Ubuntu!, the authors share the story of John Peterson, a new manager in the credit department at a major bigbox retailer, who is struggling in his job. The people under him are not working as well or effectively as they need to, and his department is falling behind in meeting its goals. His only solution is to take on more work himself, burning the midnight oil and coming in most weekends to pick up the slack and keep his department above water. When one of the employees stays behind to help him—a young man who came to America from a small village in Africa—he learns of the ancient wisdom and hidden power of the African philosophy of Ubuntu (the philosophy that considers the success of the group above that of the individual). Before long, it begins to change the way he thinks about the people he works with, about himself, and about how he runs his department and his life. Through the telling of John’s story, the authors reveal the core elements of the African philosophy of Ubuntu, as well as uncover its business applications that any manager or professional can apply. By the end of the story John has not only turned his department around with Ubuntu but the bigbox retailer has taken on the philosophy of Ubuntu as a corporate way of life. OB applies to Ubuntu in that they both focus on the individual, group and organization. The book and......

Ubuntu, Humanity to Others

...I decided to write my project on Ubuntu, which is a distro of Linux. Ubuntu |oǒ'boǒntoō|: Ubuntu is an ancient African word meaning 'humanity to others'. It also means 'I am what I am because of who we all are'. The Ubuntu operating system brings the spirit of Ubuntu to the world of computers. (The Ubuntu Story) I chose Ubuntu because I have used it since 2009 and have loved it ever since then. I will be discussing the current distro which is 14.04, the next one will be 15.04 but 14.04 is the current stable version of Ubuntu or also often referred to as LTS or Long Term Support. The history of Ubuntu is quite short or at least 2004 kind of short. Mark Shuttleworth, from South Africa, started a company called Canonical which was created alongside Ubuntu. The purpose was to help it reach a wider market. They help governments and businesses the world over with migrations, management, and support for their Ubuntu deployments. They would work together with their partners, to ensure that Ubuntu runs reliably on every platform from the pc and the smartphone to the server and, crucially, the cloud. (Canonical) Ubuntu is part of a type of software referred to as open source, a development model promotes a universal access via a free license to a product's design or blueprint, and universal redistribution of that design or blueprint, including subsequent improvements to it by anyone. (Open source) The vision of Ubuntu is part social and part economic: free software, available to......

Windows Server 2008: How to Install a Printer:

...May 17, 2013 1. Video: Windows Server 2008: How to Install a Printer: The Windows Server 2008 video was interesting to say the least; however sound or narration to the video would have been more helpful. Since it is silent it is difficult at times to ascertain exactly what the demonstrator is trying to communicate. At times the instructor was pointing to menu lists even though these were not part of the process. The process pretty much followed the same process that the lab book suggested in fact I had just finished the lab when I started watching the video. The only difference here was that the setup was for adding the printer on a Standard TCP/IP Port, which wasn’t covered in the lab book. Typing a printer name also selected the same as the port name. The instructor did copy/paste the IP address and Port Name, which did make that part seem much easier as well. Strange though the device wasn’t detected on the network and additional information was asked if the instructor. A generic network card was selected and then the printer still wasn’t located but the Add Printer window appeared and allowed the instructor to select the printer out of hundreds of others. Finally, an IBM 4029 laser printer was selected and of course the computer prompted for the driver disk immediately. Then a name for the printer was typed in, and then the installation process continued. Afterwards the Printer Sharing window appeared and the instructor entered the information required for......

Ubuntu Touch Cost Benefit Analysis

...Ubuntu Touch Cost Benefit Analysis After being tasked with finding the best phone to meet Eduboost’s various needs, it is my pleasure to present you with my findings. But before I get into this discussion on the particular phone that I have chosen, I would like to give some background on the criteria that was used to come to this decision. I considered the various needs of Eduboost, the 170 Eduboost members, the cell phone corporation I chose, as well as Eduboost’s donors, shareholders as well as the general public. I also took into consideration the savings, the future proofing, as well as the maintenance that the device would offer when we begin promoting literacy throughout the country of Melandria. With that being said, I have chosen the Ubuntu Touch as the official phone for Eduboost’s future projects. One of the factors I focused on in the beginning is how much each phone would cost. Due to the fact that our shareholders and donors have given us a set budget, I wanted to be certain that the phone we use was as practical and cost efficient as possible. According to the CNET, the Firefox OS is offered for $25 with a compatible smartphone. That is a huge difference in price when it is compared to the Ubuntu Touch, which is priced at $170 with a compatible smartphone. When factoring in the 170 Eduboost members, the total cost of Firefox OS phones would be $4,250 for the Eduboost; whereas, the total cost for Ubuntu Touch would be $11,900. Now while Firefox OS is offering......

How to Dualboot Linux and Windows

...How to Dual-boot Linux and Windows (on a PC with Windows 7 already installed) The purpose of this Instructable is to set up your computer to dual-boot Windows 7 and Ubuntu Linux. Dual-booting is a technique which allows a single physical computer to run two or more operating systems (OSes). This is useful for experimenting with new OSes without putting all your eggs in one basket. Step 1: Getting Prepared Prerequisites: 1. A PC running Windows 7, with at least 30 GB of free hard-drive space. 2. A CD/DVD burner and blank CD/ DVD or a USB drive with a capacity of 1GB or more 3. An external Harddrive big enough to backup your Windows installation 4. Administrative access to the PC 5. Internet Connectivity Most PCs sold in the last three years should meet the criteria for number 1. To confirm what version of Windows you are running, go to My Computer and click on “System properties.” The listed version should be Windows 7. From that same screen, you should see how much free space you have left, which is underneath the blue bar for each disk. In the example image, there is "8.49 GB free of 55.7GB". NOTE: The 8.49GB shown in the example is not enough space for most people. While you can install Ubuntu to a partition this size, you will typically want more space store documents and applications. 20GB is probably the minimum size you would want. Step 2: Select a Linux Distro Linux comes in many flavors. Some distributions are aimed at full......

...The software can be installed in the local disk C where most of us install automatic applications however, there is an opportunity to save the files in other locations. All a client requires is to configure installation process. For example, I have saved the applications in my main disk that comprises all programs. This means that the location is able to run Microsoft Office suite as a single program. Microsoft Office entails an office suite of desktop application, servers and overhaul for the Microsoft windows and OS X operating system. The suite was introduced with three major applications i.e. Microsoft word, Microsoft Excel and Microsoft PowerPoint. Among the three applications, Microsoft Office is the least difficult application to learn while Microsoft Excel is the most difficult application to make use of. According to my understanding, I have reasonable ideas to put up on Microsoft word. Microsoft Word is the least difficult program to lean as I have all concepts regarding writing. As a learner, we were taught about project works and all processes involved. The current version is Office 2013 for widows’ released two years ago. Microsoft Word is the most popular in offices as it meets de facto standards. Additionally, the program is easy to use as it can be used in XML-based versions.

How to Install and Debug Grain Hulling Machine?

...How to Install and Debug Grain Hulling Machine? Check whether there has foreign matters in the grain hulling machine, then switch on.  When the grain hulling machine has a normal running, send material to the feeding port. Observe grain peeling process of the discharge port. Turn the gap adjustment dish and adjust the gap between the two grinding wheels. Clockwise rotation makes the gap decrease, conversely, anticlockwise rotation makes the gap enlarge. When the gap is adjusted, we plug the safety pin of the turning disc in the shell hole for normal production.  Observe the grain hulling machine charging quantity. If the charging quantity is too large, then reduce it.  If there has sudden failure, we should cut off the power and check the machine. Don’t make any foreign matters to the feeding port of the grain hulling machine. Don’t stretch hand into the canister of the feeding port.  The halting sequence and the boot sequence should be opposite.  The above is the grain hulling machine operation methods. In grain hulling machine operation, we should  pay attention to these methods, and make the grain hulling machine have a long service life. Correct installation and debugging matters whether the grain hulling machine can have a good performance in operation.
