When setting up a Linux machine, I used to use Ubuntu Studio 16.04 LTS and what follows pertains to that version of the OS. (These days I run either 20.04LTS or 21.04.) There ar a few packages I always install, and a number of personal scripts, which I stick in /usr/jda/bin. There are two files here, both tarballs, one with a few personal details in them, which is encryptied with gpg. I place it here for my convenience, and if you can't figure out what to do with the contents merely by looking at them, they are probably not for you anyhow.
