What I do after installing Linux Mint?

In this article we will talk about my personal preferences about how to configure a fresh installed Linux Mint. In addition, will make it faster and easier)))

Lately, I often install Linux Mint. For friends, relatives. Every time i have to do a long routine procedure. The installation of programs, enter commands, and so on.
Remember the article How to create your own script (sh)?
So I want to share with you my own script that I make life easier.
Please note, first I don’t do system updates, but I remove unwanted programs for me to not upgrade them in vain.
This script I made to install on Linux Mint 18.2. You can build on and alter as you wish.

Left to save the file with sh extension and make executable. Then run, enter the password and go to drink tea)))
That’s all, it saves a lot of time. Change as is convenient for you, perhaps you will enjoy it and you will do even better.

May the Force be with you,
Good Luck!!!

This is for me the PPAs, you can not set them, I was just trying to show how convenient to use these scripts
