Installing Ubuntu on a fresh system

Ubuntu 13.04

1. Download the iso file and create a live bootable USB stick (

2. Boot the system using the USB stick and install Ubuntu in a 50 GB or 15% of total capacity of your hard disk, whatever is greater. Create a swap equal to installed memory but do not create any partitions at present. Leave rest of the disk free.

3. Log on to new user and create two (or more) encrypted partitions.

4.  Open software center and uninstall useless software.

5. I also remove unity lenses by executing following commands as root:

apt-get autoremove unity-lens-shopping 
apt-get autoremove unity-lens-music 
apt-get autoremove unity-lens-photos 
apt-get autoremove unity-lens-video

6. Execute following command as root:

apt-get update && apt-get upgrade

7. Install essential software:
apt-get install geany g++ vlc gimp ghex 

8. Now open "Disks" utility and create two (or more) encrypted partitions.
