- Ubuntu Games/Good Apps
Ubuntu’s new unity interface is not something I got one with… but at the login screen you can choose “Ubuntu classic” which gives you Gnome 2
currently im using a different though distro Ubuntu Studio, might give mint a spin myself soon
just google theres tons of free games
managed to get some steam games I own going using this, wasn’t difficult
applications.. depends what you are interested in doing?Posted 6 years ago
Yeah I’ve used wine to get a few games working (and steam, steam and the source engine work pretty well) but in general it’s just a faff and ubuntu linux games themselves tend to be rather hit and miss was just after a few recommendations.
As for what I’m interested in doing, just things that help boost productivity (ie. guake) and interesting little things that just make everyday tasks a bit quicker. I’m also a software dev so stuff linked to that would be good too!
Also, I’ve found mint to be really good, I like the layout and it’s pretty fast too.Posted 6 years ago

gdb, gprof, grep and find of course! 🙂
Eclipse is meant to be the best IDE, not used it myself, I think it’s based on the KDE text editor kate, which is what I use, quite nice. MONO is something I’ve kept on meaning to look at it’s a C# implementation.
Google GIT guis (not used one personally) https://git.wiki.kernel.org/index.php/Interfaces,_frontends,_and_tools#Graphical_Interfaces
If you have konqueror installed fish is a really nice tool to make ssh file transfers easy. Just put fish://firstname.lastname@example.org in the address bar. Unfortunately firefox dose not support fish and I don’t think chrome dose either.Posted 6 years ago
I’ve been using Ubuntu for a few years now and just installed mint 11 (built on ubuntu 11) as frankly ubuntu 11 looks and feels a bit early learning centre. Anyone know of any good games for ubuntu? Also, any good applications that could make my life better in some way?Posted 6 years ago
grep is something that I must learn how to use at some point!
It’s well worth learning it. I’m no master I usually just do
grep -in ‘something’ *.cpp / *.f / *.whatever
i = ignore case
n = show line number
maybe through in a wild card character here or there.
grep + find is really useful. pipe your find results into grep and you can find virtually anything wit has complicated a criteria as you can manage.
Hmm I’ll have a look!Posted 6 years ago
