About Leck Linux

.
i have to apologize. the only version of leck linux i released, wouldn't have worked if anyone downloaded it anyway. i have the next version working but i'm not going to "release" it due to the fact it's too difficult to install. i'm now attempting to make the first image of leck linux which will function on debian. it will allow a totally automated install. if there are any problems with the install, you can alternatively install debian which i will be releasing a 2nd version which works for people who have debian and ubuntu already. i will have more details as it gets more completed. the next version of leck linux is focused on speed and bug free. bugs should not plague linux distros, and now bugs are plaguing the major oses also.
.
if you wish to join the leck linux newsletter, please contact me with your email or instant messagner and screen name for that instant messanger. i send out one newsletter per month on average, and not more than one newsletter per week. the newsletter explains in more detail and more frequently things about leck linux. i offer beta releases as well in the newsletter. details how to easily unsubscribe are at the bottom of the newsletter. my contact info link is at the top of this webpage and at the top of my main webpage.
.
please disregard the rest of the leck linux section until i release the next version of leck linux.

Installing Leck Linux

.
Leck Linux version release date:
041714
.
this is the second release of leck linux. i date releases instead of using version numbers because dates are better than version numbers to track releases.
.
if you don't follow my directions, this installation will not work. these are also instructions how to install ubuntu. i don't know why someone would install ubuntu if they have the option of installing linux mint.
.
step 1
in order to install leck linux, download the iso of the desktop version of ubuntu (not long term support version). burn a dvd or "burn" a boot usb drive, the follow the instructions below. (you don't need to preread the instructions)
http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop
.
step 2
burn the image to a cd (dvd or bluray) with
http://cdburnerxp.se/ (it works on all windows)
OR
burn it to a bootable usb (flash memory, not mass storage)
http://rufus.akeo.ie/
.
here are older versions of rufus and cdburnerxp in the "applications" download, in case the above links don't work
http://www.lecksitegd1.com/
.
step 3
put the cd (dvd bluray) or usb stick into the leck linux computer and restart the computer (or shutdown and turn back on) making sure you configured the computer's bios setup to boot from the cd or usb. you will see a screen with a lot of black and orange if you are doing it correctly because those are ubuntu's colors. leck linux is based upon ubuntu right now, but that will eventually change. install with all the default settings except you want to log in automatically, and check to install third party software and check to update software (if it gives you that option). use the entire hard drive replacing all other operating systems (unless you are dual booting). when in doubt leave the default settings when installing. there is no point to register with ubuntu one if you are installing leck linux. i understand ubuntu one has ended so no point at all to register with ubuntu one.
.
write down your password. It doesn't have to be a long or complicated password unless more than 1 person is going to be using the computer. If you want to dual boot (have multiple operating systems like linux and windows bootable from the same computer), install ubuntu last bc windows overwrites the boot grub preventing the computer from dual booting (you can modify the grub back to dual boot, but it's easier to install windows first). if your wireless internet is not working, you need to use a wired connection in order to install your wireless radio driver to get your wireless working.
.
step 4
click on this link and download the leck linux automatic program installer
http://goo.gl/Givwrd
.
step 5
when you "run" the lecklinux041714.zip, it will open a window with 1 file and 1 folder. extract these to your desktop.
.
i am not going to finish automating the installation because i'm working on the leck linux image now. you have to
you need to keep doing these 3 things until there are no more programs to install, and there are no more updates. (i know some of the programs have been discontinued, so don't worry about installing them)
1. double click lecklinux and then select 1 to update
2. double click lecklinux and select 2 or 3 to install programs
3. restart your computer
do not update or install anything else while lecklinux is running
.
extra information
it's a good idea to update once a month. you don't want to go more than 6 months without updating your software because there will be an increased chance of bugs and viruses. the lecklinux updater does the same thing as ubuntu updater, so you can use either.
.
INSTALLED ALREADY libreoffice writer your word processor (like microsoft word)
INSTALLED ALREADY firefox your web browser
INSTALLED ALREADY brasero your cd dvd and bluray burning software brasero
INSTALLED ALREADY autoremove to uninstall software
INSTALLED ALREADY rhythembox (DON'T USE)
.
after installing you will want easy access to your applications. use one of these 2 methods in order to get easy access to your applications.
.
1. move your mouse to the left of your screen. left click on files, move your mouse to the top left and left click on "file" then left click on "bookmarks". copy and paste this in the bottom right window and you will see the top right window change to "applications"
/usr/share/applications
.
2. move your mouse to the left of your screen. left click on "files", then "usr" then "share" then right click "applications" folder. left click "move to" and left click "desktopo" then left click ok or press enter
.
not every program is on your sidebar. every program is in your applications folder.
.
you can also run applications by typing in the exact name in a terminal. the terminal is the same thing as run or cmd in windows.
.
you can do everything via the terminal by starting with "sudo" or logging in as superuser
.
at this point you are ready to start using leck linux! if you want to install any additional software, search the internet for the name and use synaptic or type "sudo apt-get install vlc" "sudo apt-get install audacity" into a terminal
.
.
DOS anchor link

chances are if you are on this webpage, you are looking for a free operating system. leck linux is still in the early stages, but dos would be more complicated for anything other than running applications. nevertheless you can run the dos operating system as your main os, or a dos emulator inside any os
.
to install the ms dos operating system as your only operating system you will want to download a full installer from the link below. to just try dos you can use a windows vista/7 or xp installation cd. for a vista/7 cd, press shift+F10 as soon as it loads. for windows xp, there are a number of different ways to access dos, the easiest being a full install of windows xp, and use a command prompt after you start up the operating system. the link to download a full installer of ms dos is: (you'll need to burn the iso to a cd or make a boot usb)
http://www.syschat.com/download60.html&act=down (latest version 7.1)
.
to install a dos emulator (dosbox is the preferred way to run dos) you can download it from the application link on my download page here: (or a current version from the dosbox website)
http://www.lecksitegd1.com/
.
.
Windows XP anchor link

if you have a copy of windows xp, you can install windows xp and update it manually. all support for xp has stopped as of 040814.
.
1. install windows xp by cd or usb boot disk: (usb boot software available in application download on my download page)
http://www.lecksitegd1.com/
.
2. update windows xp to service pack 3 if it's not sp3 (which is the last sp) you will have to search the internet for the "standalone" downloads of the service packs
.
3. use windows update (windows update may not work for xp) or windiz update (keep rerunning it until it shows no more updates needed)
a. windiz update: (use firefox with this solution)
http://windizupdate.com/
b. for windows update use the link in your start menu (then programs or control panel)
.
4. update any software or drivers which were not updated (software like your internet browser and drivers like your graphics card and printer)
.
.
User interfaces anchor link

.
binary BI -
if you want to build a type of computer, you start here
.
machine TUI -
this is the most basic of interfaces with a computer. i want to eventually use this type of programming language to make my operating system. this would be the last thing i do. machine language is probably perfect in that all it does is make it so you don't have to look at binary to program. it probably reduces the binary to hexadecimal (16 different characters) instead of looking at long lines of base 2 (1s 0s and spaces). (our number system is base 10 and the english alphabet is base 26)
.
dos TUI -
i'm sure everyone who has used a computer has seen dos. it's what you see when a computer first starts, and it's in english (or your native language). it's a very simple form of basic programming where there are only about 100 commands. all current operating systems use a form of dos to build upon
.
linux TUI -
similar to dos with many more than 100 commands. it simplifies things like ejecting a cd rom and downloading from the internet. Linux is the free form of unix
.
debian TUI -
there are a dozen main types of distributions of linux. I use debian because you can run either of the 2 most popular free GUIs from debain: ubuntu or mint
.
ubuntu GUI -
even though you can use graphics in any operating system, ubuntu attempts to copy the way other operating systems function for user familiarity. there are more computers than people in america, so this is a good idea.
.
Leck Linux GUI -
this will begin with my own distribution of linux. there are hundreds of popular linux distributions, but i won't stop here. i want to redo ubuntu next and eventually redo all the levels in this section. the good thing about using Leck Linux instead of others like Mint is that i have tested the best type of each software, and i will make linux easier than windows/mac/otheroses to use. updating and installing software does not have to be complicated. why does windows make you run windows update 4x after installing windows? why isn't free software loaded with other operating systems that allows you to do what you want with a computer. why isn't software free? i don't have a problem paying for better software if you work with a computer professionally, which is why when you buy a computer, you should be able to have a free operating system that is easy enough a child or grandparent can use it without being taught.
.
audio user interface -
siri, dragon, and Leck skeleton AUI are types of this already. most new devices have some form of speech input now.
.
cranial user interface -
they are making astonishing progress in this type of interface. the first breakthrough was a toy car that would drive or stop depending on what you think.
.
definitions anchor link

.
Binary Interface -
computers (and your brain) operate on electric or light transmission where when the electricity (electrons) or light (photons) is being transferred over a predetermined time period, it returns a 1 and if nothing is being transferred it returns a 0. This interface isn't usually used by a human because it's only 0s, 1s, and spaces on a computer screen.
.
Text User Interface (also referred to as command line interface) -
we still default back to text user interfaces with the interfaces below, because there have always been faults in every os that i've seen, which is why you need to be able to access the text based interface to fix those problems.
.
Graphical User Interface -
using a mouse (mostly) and keyboard. because of the popularity of windows, most GUIs are box based. it could have been circles or appear like you are reading a book if windows didn't become popular.
.
Audio User Interface -
this is being developed and implemented now. it means you speak to a computer and the computer is able to do what you want instead of using other ways of interfacing.
.
Touch User Interface -
this is a cool idea but it's not being handled the correct way in computers yet. there are major problems with trying to use touch screen controls on software designed for mouse and keyboard. it is possible to do this correctly but it will be consumed by a motion user interface when they realize you are touching a mouse and keyboard instead of touching a surface that works very similarly to a computer mouse.
.
Cranial User Interface -
it's being developed now. this means you think and a computer is able to take inputs from your thoughts. the helmet needs to be calibrated to the person's brain because every brain is different. this doesn't mean that a computer will be able to read a person's thoughts. scientists are still a ways away from decoding thoughts and memories of a brain. the brain isn't just encoded. the brain has a quantum entanglement, and is a much more powerful computer than we have nowadays for the space used. the human brain is inefficent (due to inability to use a brain properly) so people don't realize how powerful their brain is.

i'm not asking for donations, but if you want this to be worked on faster donating is the best way. make sure you tell me you are donating so i work on this more often.

.
this is my contact info to tell me you donated

.
extra notes:
.
this helps with the workings of a lot of programs.
mjpegtools
.
you can share your desktop without using extra software. find "desktop sharing" in unbuntu to do so
.
the ubuntu forums and websites aren't always correct when they say what is the best software for a particular job. i know i don't have a good audio converter yet, but i'm working on it.
.
i will have all of this happen automatically, but for now you have to do it manually
.

su -
root
tazpkg get-install unetbootin
http://hg.slitaz.org/tazpkg/raw-file/tip/doc/tazpkg.en.html#get-install
if there are errors and you want to try to fix them do this:
sudo dpkg --configure -a
sudo apt-get install -f
.
THIS DOESN"T WORK YET BUT I"M LEAVING IT ON THIS WEBPAGE TO REMIND ME TO FIX THIS. JUST CLOSE THE UPDATE MANAGER EVERY TIME IT COMES UP (I'M SORRY)
disables the automatic popup updater
gconf-editor
it will appear on your left taskbar at the bottom
after opening open Apps then Update Notifier and uncheck the auto_launch then press the X at the top left
if the notifier pops up just close it. The next time you restart it won't pop up anymore. You should update by going to a terminal and copying and pasting these in succession
sudo apt-get update
enter your ubuntu password
sudo apt-get upgrade
then press y and enter
