Ubuntu 17.10 Post Install

Ubuntu has given up on Unity. I will miss the idea of an Ubuntu phone, but not Unity itself. Gnome is welcome.

Post Install:

- Remove Thunderbird and Install Evolution
    a real email/calendar client, and evolution undergirds the email/calendaring anyhow.
- Gnome Tweaks
   manage extensions, desktop settings,
- Chromium 
   Need a alternate browser for occasions, also, like the profile management for managing many sites     google accounts

- Install keys
- Add sftp/smb bookmarks
- install geany ide
- Gnome Web 
   a webkit browser, a little more like Safari, for testing
- put terminal on dock


- Extension dash to dock 
  Optional now that there is an ubuntu dock

Install a self-signed certificate in ubuntu-based systems

Install a self-signed certificate in ubuntu-based systems

Given a CA certificate file 'foo.crt', follow these steps to install it on Ubuntu:
First, copy your CA to dir /usr/local/share/ca-certificates/
sudo cp foo.crt /usr/local/share/ca-certificates/foo.crt
then, update CA store
sudo update-ca-certificates
That's all. You should get this output:
Updating certificates in /etc/ssl/certs... 1 added, 0 removed; done.
Running hooks in /etc/ca-certificates/update.d....
Adding debian:foo.pem
