Ubuntu / Linux-Mint Desktop Initial Setup
I like to have a bunch of stuff installed and configured when I set up a new Linux Ubuntu/Mint instance.
This script brings a freshly created instance up to scratch, including
- installing base apt packages,
- adding the main user to essential groups, and
- instituting bash history logging.
ATTENTION: Be sure to check out what the script does before blindly running it!
