At this point, I’ve wiped and reformatted my new Ubuntu computer 4 times over the past 4 months. You could say several things, to which I would likely respond:
You: Are you that much of a novice?
Me: Yup, and it appears to be worsening… I’m the Benjamin Button of Computer Science
You: Isn’t there another way to do it?
Me: Probably, I’m all ears…
You: Can’t you have a productive career as a something else,… maybe a shepard?
Me: Good point, I’m actually quite good at making sheep noises.
So this post is really for me to get my Computer up and running again as quickly as possible… the next time I decide to punch myself in the junk.
gnome-terminal-colors-solarized, cd into the folder, and run either:
$ sudo apt-get emacs24
Install Emacs keybindings system-wide
$ gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface gtk-key-theme "Emacs"
emacs-color-theme-solarizedrepository and follow the straightforward instructions
auto-completefor Emacs NOTE: The only wayinstall this is by watching the first 20 seconds of this video on YouTube frame by frame (I feel like Dark Helmet ordering them to slow down the ship while I’m watching this, but the end result is worth it)
yasnippetfor Emacs. For this you can actually
M-x package-install [RET] yasnippet [RET]and it works fine.
Quick change of the coloring in Terminal
Make sure you
(require 'ido)in your
$ sudo apt-get install pandoc
$ sudo apt-get install texlive-full
WHEW… and that should do it! Maybe next time instead of taking 6 hours, it’ll take 2… because just like that awkwark silence that ensues when you realize someone is complete d-bag… this will happen again.
