ubuntu on home desktop

tried this last weekend.

loaded gutsy 7.10 first, then got vmware server working with that, no problem.

set up compiz fusion – awesome. Did it this way:

1 sudo aptitude -y update
2 sudo aptitude install nvidia-glx-new linux-restricted-modules-$(uname -r)
3 md5sum /etc/X11/xorg.conf | sudo tee /var/lib/x11/xorg.conf.md5sum
4 sudo nvidia-glx-config enable
5 sudo nvidia-xconfig
6 sudo aptitude install build-essential xinetd linux-headers-$(uname -r)

16 sudo aptitude -y update && sudo aptitude dist-upgrade
17 sudo aptitude install compiz compiz-core compiz-fusion-plugins-extra compiz-fusion-plugins-main compiz-gnome compiz-plugins compizconfig-settings-manager libcompizconfig-backend-gconf libcompizconfig0 python-compizconfig

Update to hardy using online update to hardy then, compiz works fine after ugrade!

usual vmware problem though.
