Farewell Ubuntu 9.04, Hello Ubuntu 10.10

Ubuntu 9.04 has just reached EOL as I was insistently prompted by the updater.
I've now moved to Ubuntu 10.10 and it looks and feels okay. This post is about setting up a machine for Development work.

Using Ubuntu software center has allowed me to easily install the stuff I need day-to-day:

Internet Related:
Mail Notification

Adobe Flash 10

Development Related:
Sun Java6
MySQL Database Server
MySQL Administrator
MySQL Query Browser

Stuff I had to install manually:
Virtual Box(downloaded the ubuntu 10.10 installer from their site)

Git(terminal usage required)
sudo apt-get install git git-gui

SmartGit(downloaded installer from their site)

PostgreSQL(terminal usage required)
sudo apt-get install postgresql

gedit-plugins(terminal usage required)
sudo apt-get install gedit-plugins

gedit-grails-bundle(terminal usage required)
cd ~/Downloads
git clone
cd gedit-grails-bundle/grails-gedit

gedit-gmate(terminal usage required)
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ubuntu-on-rails/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gedit-gmate

wine1.3(terminal usage required)
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install wine1.3

unrar(terminal usage required)
sudo apt-get install unrar

went to their website and downloaded the linux installer for ubuntu

I hope you found the post useful. I hope to update this post when I add some other usefull stuff on this work machine. You can subscribe via email or subscribe via a feed reader to get relevant updates from this blog. Have a nice day.
