How to install Ubuntu Make (Ubuntu Developer Tools Center) in Ubuntu 14.04 and 14.10




Ubuntu Make is a project by Canonical to enable quick and easy setup of common developer tools on Ubuntu. It was formerly named Ubuntu Developer Tools Center and was changed to Ubuntu Make based on the new name proposals from Ubuntu community.


With a new name also comes a new 0.2 release which brings fixes for Android Studio installation. ADT has been removed because it is no longer in active development.
Also Android Studio doesn't ship with Android SDK but you can download it separately or from the Android Studio setup process.

Ubuntu Make can be used to install Android Studio and Eclipse for now.


To install Ubuntu Make in Ubuntu 14.04 and 14.10, enter the following commands in Terminal:


sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-desktop/ubuntu-make

sudo apt-get update


sudo apt-get install ubuntu-make


To install Android Studio, enter the following commands :

umake android

Then choose the installation path (or use the default), accept license by entering "a" and Ubuntu Make will do the rest.



To install Eclipse enter the following commands :

umake ide eclipse


Stay High on Linux. Peace!!!

Gnome Extensions I Use To Enhance My Desktop Usage

I am currently running Fedora 22 with Gnome 3.16 . One of the best features of GNOME are shell extensions. These extensions bring all sorts of handy features to GNOME. Installing and using GNOME extensions couldn't be any simpler. Simply browse over extensions.gnome.org and look for the extension that appeals to you.

Meet elementary OS Freya : A fast, lightweight and beautiful replacement for OS X and Windows

My favorite Linux distribution - elementary OS has released a new stable version named elementary OS Freya. After being under development for a 1 year and a half, its finally here and it’s now even more polished, clean, beautiful with great new features and three new default apps.

elementary OS is a Linux distribution based on Ubuntu and the latest release Freya is based on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.
