Ubuntu hints

notes about ubuntu install for a NUC:

created a bootable USB with these instructions:

in particular the rufus tool was key to making this painless.

must also do:

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade

or the 'ubuntu software' tools won't work/broke when i tried to install emacs.

creating a shared drive with windows host:
with virtual mx shut down, go to 'edit virtual machine settings', select vmware options tab, select drive to share and name it
the drive will appear under /mnt/hgfx/ when you turn virtual machine back on
