Installing X11 Libraries

Feb 07, 2018

It can be difficult to figure out what packages to install to get Ubuntu configured to work with X11. The student environment is already configured, but you might need to do this if you want to run Linux locally.

Here’s the steps I took to get my Ubuntu VM setup properly.

sudo apt-get install git

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:linuxuprising/java
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install oracle-java10-installer

sudo apt-get install g++
sudo apt-get install libx11-dev
