Ubuntu 17.04 Zesty Notes


I am such a sucker for punishment

I am running Ubuntu 17.04 Zesty, due in April and its a little bit kind of broken


Virtualbox is not yet packaged by Oracle so I had to install from source

Searching around I found devmanuals and had to install multiverse repositories

sudo add-apt-repository main
sudo add-apt-repository universe
sudo add-apt-repository restricted
sudo add-apt-repository multiverse


sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
sudo apt install virtualbox-source
sudo apt install virtualbox-dkms

since this is a new desktop

install apt-vim

apt-vim docs

curl -sL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/egalpin/apt-vim/master/install.sh | sh

then install vim-nerdtree

apt-vim install -y https://github.com/scrooloose/nerdtree.git

I then had to reboot and install the Virtualbox Extension pack
