Welcome To FreeApZone's Ubuntu Page


Ubuntu is a community developed, Linux-based operating system that is perfect for laptops, desktops and servers. It contains all the applications you need - a web browser, presentation, document and spreadsheet software, instant messaging and much more.

20 Things You MUST DO After Installing Ubuntu 20.04 (Right Now!)

Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS (Bionic Beaver)

Intro to Ubuntu 18.04 v2


The desktop image allows you to try Ubuntu without changing your computer at all, and at your option to install it permanently later. This type of image is what most people will want to use. You will need at least 1024MiB of RAM to install from this image.
Ubuntu 18.04 LTS states minimum as: 2 GHz dual core processor or better. 2 GB system memory. 25 GB of free hard drive space. Either a DVD drive or a USB port for the installer media. Internet access is helpful.

Install Wine and Play on Linux on Ubuntu 16.04

Watch CBS All Access, Netflix and Hulu on Ubuntu 16.04

Make mkv beta on ubuntu 17.04

Create HDTV and DVR on Ubuntu 17.04

Play Blurays on Ubuntu 17.04

Ubuntu 16.04.5 LTS (Xenial Xerus)

Desktop image

The desktop image allows you to try Ubuntu without changing your computer at all, and at your option to install it permanently later. This type of image is what most people will want to use. You will need at least 384MiB of RAM to install from this image.

Recommended Minimum System Requirements

The Recommended Minimum System Requirements, here, should allow even someone fairly new to installing Ubuntu or Gnu&Linux to easily install a usable system with enough room to be comfortable. A good "rule of thumb" is that machines that could run XP, Vista, Windows 7 or x86 OS X will almost always be a lot faster with Ubuntu even if they are lower-spec than described below. Simply try Ubuntu CD as a LiveCD first to check the hardware works.

Ubuntu Desktop Edition

2 GHz dual core processor
2 GiB RAM (system memory)
25 GB of hard-drive space (or USB stick, memory card or external drive but see LiveCD for an alternative approach)
VGA capable of 1024x768 screen resolution
Either a CD/DVD drive or a USB port for the installer media
Internet access is helpful


Processor-i3 or i5
8 to 16GB of RAM
3D Acceleration Capable Videocard with at least 256 MB

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:Best So Far!

Intro to Ubuntu 14 04.1 for Newbies

Recommended System requirements

Ubuntu should run reasonably well on a computer with the following minimum hardware specification. However, features such as visual effects may not run smoothly.

1.6 GHz x86 processor
512 MB of system memory (RAM)
8 GB of disk space
Graphics card capable of 1024x768 resolution
Sound card
A network or Internet connection

Note: All 64-bit (x86-64) PCs should be able to run Ubuntu. Use the 64-bit installation CD for a 64-bit-optimised installation.

My Recommendation for visual effects

# 3 GHz x86 processor
# 2 Gig of system memory (RAM)
# 100 Gig of unalocated hard drive space.
# Supported graphics card A high end if you want Games
Note I have found ATI and Nividia are well supported by ubuntu.

My System recomendations will give you what you need to try all your favorite Ubuntu Apps and Games.

Visual effects provide various special graphical effects for your desktop to make it look and feel more fun and easier to use. If your computer is not powerful enough to run visual effects, you can turn them off and will still have a usable Ubuntu desktop. Visual effects are turned on by default if you have a graphics card which is supported.

Watching Netflix on the Ubuntu 14.04 Desktop

How to watch Netflix in Ubuntu 14.04:

As of a couple months back You can watch Netflix using nothing but Chrome Browser NOT CHROMIUM IT HAS TO BE THE ORIGINAL GOOGLE CHROME you can get it HERE DOWNLOAD GOOGLE CHROME HERE
The next method is still valid for now but because of previous developement with google it may not stay around.

We shall be using Pipelight, a project that brings Silverlight support to Linux via Wine. The project is in beta but works quite well. Let’s see how to install Pipelight in Ubuntu 14.04.

Install Pipelight in Ubuntu 14.04

Installing Pipelight in Ubuntu 14.04 is very easy thanks to the PPA by Pipelight team. Open a terminal and run the following commands one by one:

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:pipelight/stable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install pipelight-multi

Enable Sliverlight to play Netflix

Usually silverlight plugin should have been enabled with Pipelight by default but just to make sure, enable Silverlight using the command below:
sudo pipelight-plugin --enable silverlight

There will be two conditions to accept, once you do that, it will take some more time to install Silverlight.

Install Netflix desktop app in Ubuntu 14.04

By this time, you should be able to use Netflix in web browsers. But there is more to it from Pipelight project. The PPA which we just used, also contains Netflix desktop app for Ubuntu. To install the Netflix desktop app, use the following command:

sudo apt-get install netflix-desktop

Once installed, you can search for Netflix in Unity Dash.

At first run, it will install some Wine related stuff. Let it do that. Afterwards, it should run fine:
