git create branch from remote

git remote update

How to download a folder with all its content recursively using wget
Use this command line:
wget -r -nH --cut-dirs=3 -nc --ftp-user=jfc-ftp --ask-password
And give the password. Better to use --ask-password so that the password is not saved in the history of the bash

Things to do after install Ubuntu

  • Update all packages
  • Install Unity2D
