I must admit, I truly enjoy Ubuntu, it’s my favorite distro and use it since 2010 with some small breaks, using Mint, Manjaro, Fedora and Debian.

For having a easy and practical guide for every time I need to reinstall linux in my PC or any other, I’ll publish my favorite full setup, configurations, softwares installed, and I pretend to make updates in this list. If you work with similar things, and thing it looks practical and nice, here we go! Remember that I’m using ubuntu 19.10 in January 2020. Tha language in the desktop is Brazillian Portuguese.

After intalling ubuntu with the minimal setup, we install the Softwares:
