I need the official Papirus-Icon pack Theme (I have founded it on Github but i need to ad PPA but how safe is PPA, whats the difference between PPA and REPO..?)

I need a properly nice (DOCK) ...

+ Maybe a nice, beautifull Dark theme (a safe one) if it's possible..

+ Some tweaks tips for increasing performance, boot-up.. memory usage etc.. are always welcome!

+ Should i use (Gdebi Package Installer) for installing DEB. or other things..?

+ I already use PSensor for controlling my Temps/Specs..

+ Some nice Widgets, applets.. extensions would be nice to! (Safe Widgets, applets, extensions.. etc + official link for it or something safe to download these from..)

 

Cheers!

 

I hope somebody can help me out :thumbup2:

If you will take a look at what I posted you will begin to learn how to do these tasks as enabling the ufw firewall and how to get vlc to play DVDs.

 

ufw firewall

 

open the command terminal and copy and paste this command.

 

sudo ufw enable

 

To check and verify open command terminal and copy and paste this command.

 

sudo ufw status

 

 

 

 

For VLC

 

open command terminal and copy and paste this command.

 

sudo apt-get install libdvd-pkg

 

press enter and then if it ask for your password enter it.

 

answer yes to any question.

 

 

open command terminal and copy and paste this command.

 

sudo dpkg-reconfigure libdvd-pkg

 

press enter and if it ask for your password enter it.

 

answer yes to any question.

 

 

Open vlc and go to media and open it and then go to open disc and open it than press play.

How to Install Papirus Icon Theme on Ubuntu

 

Not sure about Themes as some of them are buggy, then you would need to set up Timeshift in case of troubles.  And since you did not post the pc you are using, I'm not sure Dark Themes would be suggested for you graphics card, and amount of RAM you have.

Timeshift

 

Yes, use gedebi for .deb packages.

 

PSensor does not control Temps it just monitors them.

 

I always use the built in Widgets and apps for the most part.

I've installed the firewall, and also installed the GUFW to controll the Firewall :guitar:

I've installed Bleachbit but only runs it once in 3 months.. because i dont want to screw my system up

I've also installed Papirus Icon Theme pack (PPA) and it seems nice.

I dont use an AV, because on Linux you don't need one.. (because i'm an normal linux user.. and i don't install things from random guys.. just Papirus icon theme because it's a trusted package)

Let's rock with Linux!

 

I've dont used my Windows-PC, already using Linux for 2 months.. :bananas:

 

I'm glad to be in the Linux World! :tophat:

I don't think you have to install the Firewall, it is installed by default.  So you think you installed it, but it was actually there already.  I don't know why some sites are giving instructions on how to do this when it is already installed by default.

 

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS introduced ufw, and it is available by default in all Ubuntu installations after 8.04 LTS.

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UncomplicatedFirewall

 

Maybe you just installed Gufw, because it may not be in Xubuntu by Default?

sudo apt-get install gufw

GUFW doesn't come installed as default and once installed it should be accessible through the control panel.

 

 

I would be cautious using bleachbit as if used haphazardly can and will result in destroying your Linux Dstro.

 

Make certain you understand each feature you apply before applying them and running .

Generally speaking Linux doesn't create as many temp files as Windows does, and is better at  "auto removing" the ones it does, so personally I've never felt the need to use anything like BleachBit on any of my Linux machines.

 

As Toolman says, it is potentially dangerous, and should always be used with care, and with caution.

 

Your browser is probably the only place where there's some advantage to be gained by having a "regular" clear out of temp files, since a build up there can have very real effects on the browser's performance.
