The latest version of the popular Linux distribution Ubuntu, code named as Itrepid Ibex (Ubuntu 8.10), has been released to the public. You can download it here or even get a CD shipped to you absolutely free of cost.
In today’s Linux Gyan, we help you get-things-working once you have installed the Intrepid Ibex. Most people expect certain functions to work out-of-the-box in a modern operating system.

Though the users are free to add these features themselves, it is always a pain in the neck to figure out all the various procedures involved and then apply it. This post will help you in getting all the required information on a single page (but you’ll still have to do the ‘applying them’ part yourself). Make sure that you book mark this page.
