During the years the environment evolved and with the latest distribution of Ubuntu 20.04 LTS you might want to migrate your environment and start using it.
In this video I’ll guide you in the setup of the new Utuntu 20.04 LTS distribution via WSL (Windows Subsystem Linux) – The same can be applied to pure Linux distributions.
First of all we need to make sure that WSL is enabled in our system. If you are using a Linux Distribution you can skip this step.
1# Endable WSL (Windows Subsystem Linux)
Open a windows power shell and run as admin:
Enable-WindowsOptionalFeature -Online -FeatureName Microsoft-Windows-Subsystem-Linux
Now Reboot the system.
Download from the windows store Ubuntu 20.04
2# Install Software on Ubuntu With the environment script.
There is a lot of stuff to install and depending on your requirements you might want to install even more packages. For this task I have created a bash script to automate the installation process and keep a reference of the key components of my environment.
I’ll try to keep it updated but you can fork it and change it as you need.
The Environment Setup Script is available at the link below: https://bitbucket.org/fbhood/environment_setup_script/src/master/
The script will install the following packages
- PIP python3 package manager
- Python Jupyther lab and jupiter notebook
- Python modules: requests, psutil,
- Python scientific distribution: numpy scipy matplotlib ipython jupyter pandas sympy nose
- PHP 7.4
- Dns Masq and network tools
- PHP Extensions
- Redis Server and PHP redis Extension
- Vue and Vue-cli
3# Tools to install
If you are following along and using WSL, you will need to install these tools on the Windows side, but if you are using Linux then you can install them directly on Linux.
