Setting Up Dell XPS 13 Laptop with Xubuntu 18.10
I’ve recently bought a new Dell XPS 13, and installed Xubuntu 18.10.
I just wanted to jot down all the things I’ve done to set it up with the software I often use, partly so it’s easier for me next time!
- Update everything
- Install stuff I use all the time
- Install hugo (for this blog!)
- git aliases to reduce typing
- Configure Oh My Zsh
sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade sudo apt install vim openjdk-11-jdk net-tools git ripgrep chromium-browser openvpn curl zsh snap install hugo --channel=extended git config --global alias.st status git config --global alias.co checkout sh -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.github.com/robbyrussell/oh-my-zsh/master/tools/install.sh)" vim ~/.zshrc
I use the alias
up to do an update and also I’ve started to use
z which helps
a lot with navigating around directories.
plugins=(z git) alias up='sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade'
