LXer: The Perfect Desktop - Linux Mint 9 (Isadora)


Published at LXer:

This tutorial shows how you can set up a Linux Mint 9 (Isadora) desktop that is a full-fledged replacement for a Windows desktop, i.e. that has all the software that people need to do the things they do on their Windows desktops. The advantages are clear: you get a secure system without DRM restrictions that works even on old hardware, and the best thing is: all software comes free of charge. Linux Mint 9 is a Linux distribution based on Ubuntu 10.04 that has lots of packages in its repositories (like multimedia codecs, Adobe Flash, Adobe Reader, Skype, Google Earth, etc.) that are relatively hard to install on other distributions; it therefore provides a user-friendly desktop experience even for Linux newbies.

In short terms: Open your package manager (Synaptic) and type Opera into the search bar, look at the given packages, do a right-click on Opera and mark as "To be installed", then apply your choices.
Or, somewhat simpler: Open a terminal (Click on your Menu, then Accessories, then choose terminal). Then type into the terminal
Code:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install opera
You will be asked for your password, keep in mind that it will not be shown and the cursor will not move while typing.
