Thank you! I have some newer Intel hardware and the kernel update was a big help. :)

Thanks, I'm going to adapt it for my purposes :)

For anyone who plans to use this: there are better and safer ways to update kernel. See http://shnatsel.blogspot.de/2013/12/why-you-should-not-upgrade-kernel-on.html

No risk no Fun! :)
I have Tested this Method on both platforms (32 and 64 bit) .. and I hadn't any issues

Thanks, This is cool.

VIOO66 commented Aug 1, 2014

After the first reboot, my display was starting blinking while i was typing..

Good stuff. It could use some updates though :)

Not bad, especially Clean up system - 100% agree, but chromium better than google chrome and sublime text 3 better than gedit, all IMHO PS. Elementary OS best linux distro, also imho^^

s-brand commented Apr 26, 2015

Can you update this script for the Freya release?

mid0ri commented Apr 30, 2015

atom for text editor, vivaldi for browser, krita for graphics

Use Virtualbox 5.0 or higher instead?
Maybe I'm on a laptop, so I still find the bluetooth system to be useful.
Why remove the software center?
How does one use the Elementary OS extras?

What do you install in alternate to modem-manager and bluez to connect ?

Awesome stuff! Thanks for sharing.

tuwid commented Sep 14, 2015

You could update the urls for the kernels:
linux-headers-4.0.0-040000_4.0.0-040000.201504121935_all.deb
linux-headers-4.0.0-040000-generic_4.0.0-040000.201504121935_amd64.deb
linux-image-4.0.0-040000-generic_4.0.0-040000.201504121935_amd64.deb

Absolutely fantastic!! saved me a ton of time having to go through and add all my desired programs and packages.. not only did you speed up my "out of the box to 100% functional process" you also refreshed my memory on a couple a programs I would have forgotten otherwise until zero hour arrived. Thank you very very much! means a lot!

Bookmarkd. Thanks! This is fantastic.

This did not work at all for me. Any advice?

mastermood commented Apr 23, 2016 edited

Here's a guide I created to make Elementary OS feel like OS X. I show how to enable desktop, improve font-rendering (like OS X style), enabling dock zoom, and other useful tweaks.

ELEMENTARY OS THINGS TO DO:

  1. https://gist.github.com/memoryleakx/7567474 ≤––– useful guide. Pick & choose what you want to do.

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Install Chrome (not Chromium, since Netflix doesn’t play well under Chromium due to some licensing stuff):
wget -q -O - https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub | sudo apt-key add -
sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google-chrome.list'
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install google-chrome-stable

  1. sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 <–––– to enable 32 bit apps on 64 bit OS.

  2. Install “Task Manager”, “VLC”, “Transmission,” etc. from Ubuntu Software Center

Some VLC Codecs To Install:

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:strukturag/libde265
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install vlc-plugin-libde265

  1. Allow volume go higher in menu – volume control on keyboard (which you have to bind in keyboard settings for the Chromebook) only goes to 100% but the menu button for sound can be conveniently “dragged” to go up to 150%.

gsettings set com.ubuntu.sound allow-amplified-volume 'true'

  1. Https://www.reddit.com/r/elementaryos/comments/3vj3xh/how_do_i_remove_these_default_applications/

sudo apt-get remove audience
sudo apt-get remove noise

May want to remove videos app. Do this to prevent Nautilus from defaulting to it over VLC. Remove videos, music, etc. i.e.

  1. http://itsfoss.com/things-todo-elementary-os-freya/

A) Enable Canonical Partners repository
B) sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras
C) sudo apt-get install libreoffice

  1. Enable DOCK ZOOM – Open up a terminal and run:

scratch-text-editor ~/.config/plank/dock1/settings
All the way at the bottom of the file do:

Whether the dock will zoom when hovered.

ZoomEnabled=true

The dock's icon-zoom (in percent).

ZoomPercent=150

gsettings set org.gnome.gnome-screenshot auto-save-directory '/home/your name/Desktop'
gsettings set org.gnome.gnome-screenshot default-file-type 'jpg'
gsettings set org.gnome.gnome-screenshot delay '1'
gsettings set org.gnome.gnome-screenshot last-save-directory '/home/your name/Desktop/'

  1. Enable seconds on menu bar:
    gsettings set com.canonical.indicator.datetime show-seconds true

gsettings set org.gnome.nautilus.desktop font '16'

gsettings set org.gnome.nautilus.preferences default-sort-order 'type'

  1. Turn off annoying “auto-maximize” feature on application boot up. Disabling this will “save” the window state upon closing it.

gsettings set org.gnome.mutter auto-maximize false

  1. Text Editors:
    sudo apt-get install gedit gedit-plugins

Also install sublime text editor if you want.

  1. Enable Desktop + Right Click:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install nautilus dconf-tools
    open dconf-tools and go to org → gnome → nautilus→ desktop and tick on any option. which you want to view on desktop.

Then go to,
org → pantheon → cerbere and add 'nautilus -n' entry as follows.

['wingpanel', 'plank', 'slingshot-launcher --silent', 'nautilus -n']

Open Terminal and type and execute following command:

nautilus -n

Again open dconf-editor and go to:

org → gnome → desktop → background and tick on Show-Desktop-Icons box

  1. Install laptop-mode-tools - It will add 20-30% to your battery life.

sudo apt-get install laptop-mode-tools

Much of this just works, but the auto backlight adjustment does not. You need to edit /etc/laptop-mode/conf.d/lcd-brightness.conf and make changes as follows:

.# turn on brightness control
CONTROL_BRIGHTNESS=1

.# set the backlight brightness of AC power state change
BATT_BRIGHTNESS_COMMAND="echo 93"
LM_AC_BRIGHTNESS_COMMAND="echo 937"
NOLM_AC_BRIGHTNESS_COMMAND="echo 937"
BRIGHTNESS_OUTPUT="/sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/brightness"

  1. ELEMENTARY OS TWEAKS
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mpstark/elementary-tweaks-daily
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install elementary-tweaks

Now go into settings and look for “Tweaks” – and customize the way you want. You can change system font sizes, add a minimize button, and more.

  1. CHROME THREE BUTTONS ON TOP RIGHT - in terminal:
    gconftool-2 --set /apps/metacity/general/button_layout --type string ":minimize,maximize,close"

  2. Install File Compression Libs
    sudo apt-get install unace unrar zip unzip xz-utils p7zip-full p7zip-rar sharutils rar uudeview mpack arj cabextract file-roller

  3. Browser plug-in for Java:

sudo apt-get install icedtea-7-plugin openjdk-7-jre

chrome:://flags and modify settings as you wish.
also download the “Backstay” extension to prevent the backspace button from annoyingly going back and also “No MouseWheel Zoom” one to prevent ctrl & +/- zooming.

  1. Install MenuLibre (so you can easily remove application shortcuts from the applications launcher)
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:menulibre-dev/devel
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install menulibre

  2. How to change desktop text color to white (like OS X): FROM: http://mylinuxideas.blogspot.com/2015/04/enable-desktop-icons-and-right-click-on.html

Open terminal and type sudo nano /usr/share/themes/elementary/gtk-3.0/gtk-widgets.css

and then paste this anywhere on the css file:

.nautilus-desktop.nautilus-canvas-item {
color: #ffffff;
text-shadow: 1 1 alpha (@fg_color, 0.8);
}

and then run nautilus -q and you will see that folder font color is now white.

  1. Select pantheon terminal as default (in case application doesn’t launch).
    sudo update-alternatives --config x-terminal-emulator

and make pantheon-terminal the default.

  1. Improve font rendering:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:no1wantdthisname/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install fontconfig-infinality
sudo bash /etc/fonts/infinality/infctl.sh setstyle

I set style as “OS X”

  1. Install Skype
    sudo apt-add-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/ precise partner"
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install skype

  2. Install the latest git Version
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:git-core/ppa
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    sudo apt-get install git

  3. Add show/hide desktop command to corners & Plank dock:

A) sudo apt-get install wmctrl
B) Create “show desktop” launcher icon on plank (personal note: I saved master.zip to Dropbox in case link breaks)
cd /tmp && wget https://github.com/png2378/showdesktop/archive/master.zip
unzip master.zip && cd showdesktop-master
sudo mv showdesktop /usr/local/bin/ && sudo mv showdesktop.desktop /usr/share/applications/ && sudo mv showdesktop.svg /usr/share/icons/elementary/apps/48/

now go to corners in desktop settings and make a custom command for “showdesktop”

  1. Install redshift from Ubuntu Software Center. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Redshift

So here is an example of a working configuration, which you can adapt to your needs. Name it redshift.conf and place it in your $HOME/.config directory, then ajust it to your needs.

[redshift]
; Set the day and night screen temperatures
temp-day=6500
temp-night=3500

; Enable/Disable a smooth transition between day and night
; 0 will cause a direct change from day to night screen temperature.
; 1 will gradually increase or decrease the screen temperature
transition=1

; Set the screen brightness. Default is 1.0
brightness=1.0
; It is also possible to use different settings for day and night since version 1.8.
;brightness-day=0.7
;brightness-night=0.4
; Set the screen gamma (for all colors, or each color channel individually)
gamma=1.0:1.0:1.0

;gamma=0.8:0.7:0.8
; Set the location-provider: 'geoclue', 'gnome-clock', 'manual'
; type 'redshift -l list' to see possible values
; The location provider settings are in a different section.
location-provider=manual

; Set the adjustment-method: 'randr', 'vidmode'
; type 'redshift -m list' to see all possible values
; 'randr' is the preferred method, 'vidmode' is an older API
; but works in some cases when 'randr' does not.
; The adjustment method settings are in a different section.
adjustment-method=randr

; Configuration of the location-provider:
; type 'redshift -l PROVIDER:help' to see the settings
; e.g. 'redshift -l manual:help'
[manual]
lat=43
lon=-73

; Configuration of the adjustment-method
; type 'redshift -m METHOD:help' to see the settings
; ex: 'redshift -m randr:help'
; In this example, randr is configured to adjust screen 1.
; Note that the numbering starts from 0, so this is actually the second screen.
[randr]
screen=0

  1. PlayOnLinux and Microsoft Office 2010 (Get the Enterprise Activated Copy of Office)

  2. To prevent bluetooth from starting at startup:
    sudoedit /etc/rc.local
    add this before line with exit 0:
    rfkill block bluetooth

  3. Elementary OS doesn’t have a default desktop enabled, so we enable Nautilus to show icons on the Desktop. Unfortunately, once in a blue moon it will crash, and we have to go to terminal and type “nautilus -q” to restart it. To do it automatically, we can make a bash script.

Instructions on making a bash script & plank icon in the /home folder to deal with Nautilus crashing and desktop icons not showing:

First create a text file in your /home folder: “desktopbash.bh”
and write in it:

!/bin/bash

nautilus -q

then save file.

Then: chmod +x desktopbash.bh

NOW TO ADD THE ICON TO PLANK: Create a .desktop file in your /home/your name/.local/share/applications folder for the script with the following information typed in your “Restore Desktop Icons.desktop” file:

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Restart Desktop Icons
Comment=Bash Script To Restart Desktop Icons
Type=Application
Exec=/home/your name/desktopbash.bh %U
Icon=multitasking-view
Terminal=false (or true)
Categories=Other;

Now just drag this file to the Plank dock to easily restart the Nautilus Desktop if desktop icons stop showing.

  1. Clear terminal history try:
    history -c
    then history -w

How do i get rid of screenfetch?

Note the LibreOffice 5.0 has been released since this came out. It's substantially enhanced. :)

thx bro

This is Updated for Loki or not?

babay3g4 commented Dec 8, 2016

After I performed "sudo rm -rf /usr/lib/plugs/GnomeCC/gnomecc-bluetooth.plug" I can no longer turn the bluetooth on my laptop. Can you please explain to me how can I solve it ??

Really good job man! Thanks

Great help for fresh installations !!!! Good Work !!

Thank you.

the main reason i switched to elementary was Noize, Geary and most of that software you just get rid of.
If you don't appreciate the effort put on this system, make one yourself and fork pantheon for your own environment. Still a good guide, outdated for Loki though.

Thank you but may I know how to reinstall gnomecc-wacom.plug?

ylluminate commented Jun 10, 2017 edited

Bluetooth and Wacom definitely need to be optional and commented out by default.

Line 74 (sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/install-css.sh) is no longer valid it appears as it's missing from the noted folder.

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:versable/elementary-update
sudo apt-get update

yields a problem:

W: The repository 'http://ppa.launchpad.net/versable/elementary-update/ubuntu xenial Release' does not have a Release file.
N: Data from such a repository can't be authenticated and is therefore potentially dangerous to use.
N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.
E: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/versable/elementary-update/ubuntu/dists/xenial/main/binary-amd64/Packages  404  Not Found
E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

For Loki, (as per: https://elementaryos.stackexchange.com/questions/6828/how-can-i-install-elementary-tweaks-on-loki) that needs to be replaced with:

sudo apt install software-properties-common &&
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:philip.scott/elementary-tweaks &&
sudo apt update &&
sudo apt install elementary-tweaks

But perhaps there is a better (?) way to implement these:
https://www.reddit.com/r/elementaryos/comments/38z164/what_is_the_elementary_teams_stance_on_elementary/crz5dsf/

Awesome ! Thank you very much, that is gonna be very useful for my next install, I kinda messed up this one :).

fredsonjh commented Jun 22, 2017 edited

I have installed and uninstalled Elementary OS Loki more than 7 times now in less than 3 weeks (experiment). This command line compilation is all that I have been looking to avoid messing up my clean install Loki. Thanks to the author of this post.

Pretty sweet,Thanks! Once I got some time i will come back and update it and add my own stuff to it 👍

on adding screenfetch into bashrc -- dont use that gedit thing you have. you should use echo 'screenfetch -D "Elementary" >> ~/.bashrc instead.
