10 things to do after installing Fuduntu

As you have read my previous post, I just installed Fuduntu 2012 and really like it. Although Fuduntu is a great distro, there are still several things to take care of after the installing. Here is the list of 10 things I did for my new Fuduntu 2012 box:

1 - Update system

Im using the latest version of Fuduntu but it doesnt mean that I got all the upgrades to the softwares that were bundled. To update system in Fuduntu, you can go to the menubar on the Gnome panel, click on System > Administration > Software Update and the Update manager window will open. It will check for new updates for a while. After that, you can select to either install all the new updates or just some necessary ones.
