For this reason I will skip the steps of creating a project and adding the different evaluation boards to the programs. In this case I a ...
Add System Monitors Ubuntu has the ability to manipulate the various desktop components.  One such addition that is useful is to get mini-system monitors on the clutter bar. $ sudo apt-get install --yes gir1.2-gtop-2.0 gir1.2-networkmanager-1.0 gir1.2-clutter-1.0   Click on the application button.   Search for and launch Ubuntu Software Search for ‘system monitor extension’ Choose the one that states "Display system informations" [Note, that is not a mis-type ...

Install File Editors and alternative File Explorer Ubuntu comes with gedit, diff (command line) and Nautilus.  We have had feedback from many users that GEANY, MELD, and THUNAR are preferred.

Cleanup Favorites Ubuntu defaults to quite a selection of items on the favorites bar.  These make sense if you are using this as a primary operating system. In the case of how we intend to use this, most of these do not make sense.  It is suggested to remove all but the bare essential items.  This allows for more room at various resolutions for icons we care about, such as terminal sessions, GTKTerm, Vitis, etc.     First, right click an item on the favorites bar, then ...
