In the latest installment of my series, I’ll be covering the basics of using Windows 8 machines to install Linux-based operating systems.
I’ll cover installing Ubuntu on a Mac, installing Ubuntu 12.04 on a Raspberry Pi, installing a Linux distro on a Linux laptop, and installing Windows 7 on a MacBook Air.
Before we begin, a disclaimer: I will not be providing any instructions on how to use Ubuntu on an Ubuntu machine, and I’ll not be offering any installation instructions.
I will be focusing on how I was able to install Ubuntu on my MacBook Air in a way that worked well for me, and will not provide any troubleshooting instructions.
As with all things in life, there are pros and cons.
Pros While this will likely be the first of many articles about installing Ubuntu and Linux on my laptop, it’s also going to be the easiest one to write.
The first thing to do is install Ubuntu.
There are two ways to install it on an Mac: by using the Terminal app, or by using Homebrew and the Ubuntu Software Center app.
If you’re going to install from the Terminal, it’ll install Ubuntu using the Ubuntu software updater (which you’ll need to install).
If you want to install via Homebrew, you’ll have to download the Ubuntu installer and install it from there.
You can also use the Ubuntu version of the Ubuntu distro-specific package manager, as long as you have the latest version of Ubuntu installed on your machine.
The Ubuntu Software Manager is available in the Ubuntu Dash, and is not an easy way to install packages.
You’ll also need a USB stick to boot Ubuntu from, which will be a pain to find on a computer.
It’s a bit more convenient to use Homebrew for installing Ubuntu.
To do so, open the Terminal application and type the following command: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt.reboot sudo apt install ubuntu-desktop-server This will launch the Ubuntu desktop.
Click on the Desktop icon and choose a menu option to go to the Ubuntu menu.
From there, select “Software Center” and then “Ubuntu Software Center.”
From there you’ll be presented with the Ubuntu Installer.
If you’re using HomeBrew, it will launch an Ubuntu installer, which is a way to download and install Ubuntu from the command line.
The default version of Homebrew is 0.12.7, which means it’s an early build of the software.
Once Homebrew finishes installing Ubuntu, you can launch the Terminal again to install the Ubuntu distribution: sudo brew update && brew install ubuntimeserver sudo apt update && apt install -y ubuntu If you use the sudo apt upgrade command, it won’t install any packages, and it won`t prompt you to reboot.
When you run sudo aptupdate it will check to see if the latest Ubuntu version is available, and if it’s not, it tells you to download it from the official Ubuntu download site.
If it is, it`s going to download a new Ubuntu ISO file, which should be up-to-date with the latest stable release of Ubuntu.
The install will take about 15 minutes, but it should take a few minutes for the install to complete.
After it finishes, you should see an Ubuntu logo on your desktop.
If not, you might want to do the following: You should see something like this on your Ubuntu desktop: If the above doesn’t show up, try launching sudo aptitude again to download that Ubuntu ISO.
If the above still doesn’t work, open up the Terminal and type sudo update-alternatives && sudo upgrade-alternative && sudo reboot (or whatever you are using to reboot your computer).
Once the upgrade completes, you will see an image of Ubuntu on your Desktop.
You should now be able to boot into Ubuntu from your Terminal.
Install Ubuntu On a Mac In my previous article on installing Ubuntu from a Mac using Homebundles, I showed how to install Windows 10, and Ubuntu on the Mac using the terminal.
The basic setup of installing Ubuntu can be done using the same way on a PC.
You need to get a USB drive with the correct version of Windows installed.
I personally used a USB-Stick that I purchased on Amazon for about $10.
You’ll want to download one of the Windows ISO files (called ubuntu.iso) from the Windows download site, which has a list of Windows 7 and Windows 8 ISO files for free.
When you’re ready, you need to insert your USB drive into your computer.
You`ll need to boot the USB drive from the terminal, which you should be able for the most part to do by typing sudo cd ~/Downloads sudo ls -l /Volumes/ubuntu-desktop/ubuntu.iso -rw-r–r– 1 root root 567 Oct 30 08:53 ub
