10.16 My new laptop came to me: intel i-5, Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS
10.17 Fist settings

  1. Installation 
    – Audiocity, VLC, Emacs, Chromium, last pass, Uni-marburg VPN 
10.18
  1. International keyboard setting for German umlauts and Hangul, korean
    • Add language Support 한국어
    • fcitx 
      – Install  fcitx

      sudo apt install fcitx fcitx-hangul

      – Once reboot, Ibus and fcitx  both are activated together, leading an error: freezing at Unity (user interface, first page after login) although  keyboard input method system has been set to fcitx  in Language support 

      – remove ibus and set the startup application setting (https://askubuntu.com/questions/1062907/cant-change-from-ibus-to-fcitx ) as adding the following text in ~/.pam_enviroment

      XMODIFIERS DEFAULT=@im=fcitx
      GTK_IM_MODULE DEFAULT=fcitx
      QT_IM_MODULE DEFAULT=fcitx
      

       

       check if fcitx has been added on auto start entry from “Startup applications Preferences” 

10.20 Emacs

  • able to type dead keys 
  • change the font of Korean in Emacs

Still have a problem to get monospace font of Korean.

10.21 Install gnuplot
