3.Also check the “Install third party…” option checkbox.

Step One [6]:

The next  screen shows the   following options:

2.Encrypt the new Ubuntu Installation for security

3.Use LVM with the new Ubuntu installation. Ensure all three options are selected or checked.

Step One [7]:

In the succeeding screen, make sure you choose an security key that is alphanumeric with special characters like (“$%£&^) in a strong random manner.

Note: Ensure you store the security key in a safe place just in case you forget because without this key, you will not be able to login into Ubuntu Linux System.

Step One [8]:

Soon afterwards, this prompt will appear alerting you to confirm the Hard Disk Sector to use for the Ubuntu Operating System. Simply click continue to advance to the next stage.

Step One [9]:

After confirming the sector to install the Operating System, the next stage is specifying your location by moving the animated dot to where you live on earth.

Step One [10]:

Next, specify the primary user of the Operating System and ensure you also give a strong alphanumeric  with special character password to login into the system. Make sure you tick the “Require my password to login”, for safety and security of your Ubuntu Operating System. This password is System Administrative with the privilege  of “sudo”, which enables the system to perform OS wide effect.

Step One [11]:

Next, the main installation process takes about 45 minutes depending on the speed of your processor. For a dual core with 4Gb of ram and enough HDD space of say 30 GB dedicated to the Operating System, Installation should take the maximum of 50 minutes.

Step One [12]:

Once the Installation is complete, a system dialog prompts for a restart. Simply click on the restart and the new operating system is ready to rock and roll!

If you right-click the desktop, a sub-menu will appear. From the List of options, select “open terminal”.

Step One [17]:

On the terminal, run the following command:

“sudo nano etc/apt/sources-list”

This will display a list of editable update sites for the Linux Kernel. Press “Ctrl X” to exit.

Step One [18]:
