Hey in this tutorials we are talking about five important things to do after installing elementary OS Juno. The Juno OS is released by Elementary OS developer and the system is based on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. The new elementary OS is powered by Linux Kernel 4.15.
So now let’s jump straight into the top 5 things to do after installing elementary OS 5.0(Juno).
The first thing we want to make sure that our drivers are all up and running in elementary OS. You know it’s pretty simple for those of you who need to install wireless drivers or Nvidia drivers in Juno. Just go under the App Store and then under the install section, you will notice that Nvidia driver install pop up after a few seconds. Now open and install the latest Nvidia drivers or if you need to install wireless or whatever drivers proprietor drivers you need to install will pop up under this section.
2- Install Eddy
The important point in number two is you want to go ahead and install Eddy or G Derby on your system. Basically this piece of software let you do is you can install deb files from right deb. Earlier if you are using the tunnel and that’ll just walk out of the box for those who are new and you don’t know how to exactly do that. For those people go ahead install Eddy it’s pretty much built for elementary OS and it’s available in the App Store. So one-click install as soon as you download your deb file. Just go ahead and open it with Eddy and there you go one-click install without any problem.
3- Elementary Tweaks
Now for the next one you want to go ahead and make sure you have elementary tweaks installed. The elementary tweaks essentially allow you to go ahead and tweak your system more on Pantheon desktop. To access the tweaks go to the “all settings” and then select “tweaks” option. So elementary tweaks are available for Juno you can go ahead and change your gtk themes, icons, cursors and much more.
If you prefer dark mode you can go ahead and enable that. After that just log out and log back in and you have a nice dark mode going. Now for those of you who want your windows like layout which has minimized, maximize and close then you can change it from layout option. Here you can also change your fonts your animations. So, guys, you can actually customize each animation if you want to then you have miscellaneous stuff like files settings. With file launcher, you can choose how many rows columns you want your terminal you can go ahead and change the background colour and a few other stuff here.
Now at number four I highly recommend you guys to go ahead and change these settings. this is a built-in feature of the elementary OS desktops. Firstly go on to system settings to select the display and go under the nightlights. So the night light makes the colours of your display warmer this may help prevent eye strain and sleepiness. Now I can highly recommend you guys to go ahead and enable this. This helped you a lot to work toward sleeping and reduce eyestrains. Here you have a few different options like schedule when you want to go ahead or you can choose manual. Also, select how much of colour temperature you want for your display more or less warmer.
5- Install TimeShift
So the last thing we generally suggest to install on the elementary OS is Timeshift. The time shift is very similar to system restore in Windows and time machine on Mac OS. Now when you go ahead and install timeshift so you will be greeted with a setup wizard. Then go ahead and choose select snapshot type you want to go ahead. If you don’t know what specific options will do what Like Rsync then below it’ll give you a brief description of what RSYNK actually does. So here we are choosing RSYNK and click on next it’ll say please wait it’ll estimate the system size. Then go ahead and choose which drive you want the snapshot to or to back up now click on finish.
By using this you can create our system restore point than lead to a specific snapshot. Under settings again and choose to change locations you can schedule when you want you to go ahead and snapshot so it’s a very in-depth and a lot of options for the specific backup tool. Here you also find how many snapshots you’ve done with our RSYNK what’s your available space. If you go and click on the menu you can view snapshot logs and stuff like that. So is our top five things that I go and do after I install elementary OS and specifically elementary OS Juno. Guys let me know what you change or what you want to add to this list.
