Get up to speed with Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal

The formal release is expected the 28th so Tech Drive-In has 12 Things I did After Installing New Ubuntu 11.04 “Natty Narwhal”.

Top of the list is to Install Ubuntu Restricted Extras, which you can do at system install time if you have a good I’net connection. Then you can add the medibuntu repository and install libdvdcss2 to be able to play DVD’s.

There is also good information about how to install proprietary hardware drivers and tweak a few desktop settings.

Last in the pile is some “incredible themes”, a list of recommended applications, and a few links to peruse.

This Ubuntu release will be interesting as the desktop interface is taking a jump. Some will complain, others will figure it out.
