Ubuntu 21.10 installation with a bunch of programs

Hi, guys. How are you?

In this post I'll share the script I've been writing down during my most recent installation of Ubuntu 21.10, so I can reuse it on another computer.

It's divided into the following sections:

Note: This script is constantly changing. Follow the Ubuntu 21.10 Installation gist for the most current version, in case the text below is out of date.

Initial tasks

Use sudo without password

# TODO: Check if entry already exists in sudoers file
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
# It'll ask for password only once
echo "${USER} ALL=(ALL:ALL) NOPASSWD:ALL" | sudo tee -a /etc/sudoers
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Update installed programs

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade -yV
sudo apt autoremove -yV
sudo apt autoclean

It avoids conflicts with Windows clock in dual-boot setups.
