Lucid Lynx a fresh install with ruby, rails, passenger etc

A fresh install for my laptop, with some Desktop tools ans all the rails/ruby stuff i need. I tried using rvm for all gems, but since executables are not available it kind of sucks for things like passenger, where youd have to change the ruby path all the time, a real showstopper imo.

  2. copy important dotfiles + firefox history/forms/… database from .mozilla
  3. install dotfiles
  4. Multi-clipboard: sudo apt-get install glipper (add to panel)
  5. install Skype
  6. Application laucher: sudo apt-get install gnome-do + enable skype plugin
  7. Ruby enterprise
  8. Java: sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre
  9. Rubymine + add Rubymine Desktop icon + choose “meta is mapped to left win” in advanced keyboard layout options
  10. Mysql: sudo apt-get install mysql-server mysql-client libmysql-ruby
  11. Apache:  sudo apt-get install build-essential apache2 apache2-mpm-prefork apache2-prefork-dev
  12. sudo a2enmod rewrite
  13. Passenger
  14. SSL for apache/passenger
  15. gem sources -a http://gems.github.com
  16. gems…
  17. Git: sudo apt-get install git-core git-svn
