Ubuntu Server Minimal Install

Sunday, January 3rd, 2010

This is the install I like to use for an Ubuntu Server, usually run headless, with a *very* basic desktop and some other bits and bobs I like.

First of all install the basic Ubuntu Server edition

Then run the following script……….

#!/bin/bash
sudo apt-get -y install gnome-core gdm network-manager-gnome
human-theme x11-xserver-utils tangerine-icon-theme
gnome-themes-ubuntu ubuntu-artwork jockey-gtk
gnome-screensaver gnome-utils

# Extras.....
sudo apt-get install -y tsclient system-config-samba
gnome-disk-utility
