What application or tools that you think a must have? and good to have?
I don't understand. Do you want to use Ubuntu 13.10 in your Dekstop? Or in your server?
I'm replaced my Windows 7 Desktop with Ubuntu 13.10.
Meld is nice to have.
Firefox is the default Browser.
But I'm a fan of Comodo Dragon on Windows
WoW! Looks like SmartGit compare feature
The items I generally add after a fresh Linux install are -
GIMP (if not already part of the install)
Meld (as mentioned above)
Plus, I generally install multiple browsers, for testing. Chromium, Epiphany, Midori, Opera, etc.
Thank you for these, have to check them out.
I also install Chromium and uses gimp sometimes.
I have used KolourPaint, because its a simple image editor, but dont like that it is for kde, but I havn't found a better one that is simple and has what I want yet.
I do not use any ftp-program like FileZilla I use de ordinary filesystem and just connects to the server. Any special reason you use FileZilla instead.
(I am not using ubuntu at the moment, moved to linux mint about a year ago.)
Thanks for the list Mike
I'm using Chromium as default browser.
Ubuntu 13.10 cannot connect ftp/ssh/sftp using the default File manager.
Or maybe I just don't know how?
I believe there is a connect to server in the menu where you can choose ssh, and then connect to your server.
Yes there is.
But only one field, there's no option/dropdown to select either ssh/sftp/ftp.
FileZilla is a lazy carry-over from when I ran Windows.
@RoldanLT , aren't you using Nemo? File >> Connect to Server >> Server Details should be giving you the option to select Type from a drop-down menu.
All I got on my Ubuntu 13.10
In that dialog box, put in:
The directory part is optional, but that's how you operate it. A box then appears to enter a username and password if it needs it.
I've only ever used sftp through Nautilus, but I'm guessing the ssh and ftp parts work similar.
Now on Ubuntu 14.04 Gnome
Congrats on dropping Windows.
Ubuntu is good but check out Mint when you have time, this is what i run. I like a simple desktop that is why i chose Xfce as my desktop.
Mint is built off of Ubuntu by the way, i just dont like the Unity Desktop.
I'm not using Unity, I'm using Gnome.
If you like you can download from their homepage for ubuntu http://google.com/chrome/ so you can install the standart chrome not chromium and i also think linuxmint is much better than ubuntu but ubuntu is good too linuxmint is of course based on ubuntu.
