Making a bootable Linux USB (Windows)

So you have your ISO downloaded and you’re ready to kick start your Linux experience. Well, let’s start by making that Linux bootable on a USB. If you don’t have an ISO yet, see what we recommend for beginners here.

First, you will need a USB with at least 4gb – This covers the size of nearly all Linux Distros they are normally 2gb or below in space but its best practice to plan ahead and have a bit more space than needed. Get a USB here.

Installing more than one program via terminal (APT)

Installing more than one program via terminal (APT)

Its quite common to want to install more than one program at the same time. So in this post we are going to do just that.

In this example im going to install Audacious, MPV, FFMPEG

In a normal installation you install one app like this:

sudo apt install appname

Now you can sit there typing it over and over again with && like below

sudo apt install appname && sudo apt install appname2

But that takes forever so instead you can just press space and enter next app for example

sudo apt install mpv ffmpeg audacious

This will install all 3, now just replace the apps names and you are good to go.
