Top 7 Things You’ll Mostly Need to Do After Installing Ubuntu 16.10/16.04
Even better, you can customized it to your heart’s content and enjoy an unparalled media experience.
- Handbrake – this is another cross platform application that should come in handy whenever you need to quickly convert a video file while still effectively shrinking the size.
- Spotify – for those of you that don’t have a premium Spotify subscription but will still like to enjoy the services it provides, then you’re mostly better off with official client for Linux that has a somewhat sub-par experience when compared to the clients on other platforms but should mostly suffice for whatever you throw at it.
Install Spotify on Ubuntu 16.10/16.04
To install Spotify, open up your terminal and enter the follow up commands from the first to the last; one after the other.
$ sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv-keys BBEBDCB318AD50EC68650906 $ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install spotify-client
Openshot – this is by far the most basic and straightforward video editing app available for Linux, that will allow just about anybody to start their hands out at video editing.
The interface is clean and it will help you quickly get things done. Mind you, Openshot does not come anywhere close in term of feature set and functionality when compared other well established tools like Adobe Premiere Pro on Windows, Kdenlive etc.
It’s just as basic as you can think.
Ubuntu restricted extras – you want to have this installed so you don’t have to worry about any missing codecs that will otherwise not allow some media files to play nice with the defaults of your system if not installed.
GIMP is by far the most popular free image manipulation tool (and perhaps the best alternative to Photoshop) available for Linux.
All of the aforementioned applications (except Spotify) are available in the new software center as a free install.
