My RHEL 6 to Ubuntu 12.10 workstation migration at ISU is complete! Here are a few notable notes I took note of for whomever's benefit it can be a benefit to:
- Ubuntu Minimal + plopping on xfce4 and whatever else you want actually works pretty well as opposed to just using XUbuntu. No bloat, fuss, nor mess.
- mount.cifs is in the cifs-utils package. ;-p
- ttf-mscorefonts-installer gives you pweeeety fonts
- Don't forget to keep your CUPS printer settings (http://localhost:631/). Then you can plop these into your new CUPS settings after you migrate and printing can resume as if nothing happened... ;-p
