linux mint の調子がおかしくなったので、クリーンインストールし直しました。 ついでにその時の手順を今後のために書き留めておきます。

1. Install essentail applications

  • brave browser
  • dropbox

2. Change keyboard settings

activate japanese input

  1. open input method
  2. install Japanese input method
  3. select fcitx
  4. logout then login

change keymaps

open keyboard in the cinnamon menu.

  • capslock to ctrl

open fcitx option in the cinnamon menu.

  • left bottom ctrl to input method changer

3. Make symbolic links

I stored lots of configuration file in Dropbox. After finising sync of Dropbox, I can make symbolic lincs from files in Dropbox.

$ cd #back to home directory for just in case.
$ ln -s ~/Dropbox/develop/.vimrc .
$ ln -s ~/Dropbox/develop/.vim .
$ ln -s ~/Dropbox/develop/.tmux.conf .
$ ln -s ~/Dropbox/env/linux/.bashrc .
$ ln -s ~/Dropbox/env/linux/.bash_aliases .
$ ln -s ~/Dropbox/env/.gitconfig .

4. Set-up ssh things

I’m using Dropbox to store ssh keys with encfs.
encfs encrypts my directory which includes the keys, I can get the keys by using encfs.

get keys

install encfs.

$ sudo apt install encfs

creat directories as mount points.

$ sudo mkdir -p /mnt/encfs/ssh_keys
$ sudo mkdir -p /mnt/encfs/pgp
$ sudo chmod 777 /mnt/encfs/ssh_keys
$ sudo chmod 777 /mnt/encfs/pgp

mount encrypted directory by my function in .bash_alias.

$ ecnfs_mount

copy keys if needed.

$ cp /mnt/encfs/ssh_keys/razer_blade/id_rsa* .

! Don’t forget to change key’s permission to 600!


$ ln -s ~/Dropbox/env/ssh_config/razer_blade_ssh_config config

5. Install basic apps

$ sudo apt install git silversearch-ag thefuck
$ brew install z fzf

6. Install Fonts

for terminal

for web browser

  • noto sans jp(google font)

7. Make system faster

Now, essentail part is almost done. Let’s make it more confortable by reading below links.
