Since UberStudent 4.3, it will give you a .bashrc, unless you have an existing one. If you want to look at the new default one, run
Code:
geany /usr/share/uberstudent/fakeskel/.bashrc
Of course, you can just add what's there to the one you have, if you want.


Awesome. My terminal experience just got a lot nicer :D

UberStudent 4.0, 4.1, and 4.3, the current releases, are compatible with only the upstream Ubuntu release "trusty." If you want the latest release of Emacs or anything else, you need to find one backported to "trusty."


I'm finally getting around to trying to sort this out. Now I have more reasons to want to get the latest Emacs running smoothly and I have VirtualBox up and running with UberStudent 4.3 so I can test some things out.

My question: how do I go about finding the latest release of Emacs backported to Trusty (if it exists) ? Does this entail adding the Trusty ppa via add-ppa? I'm not actually sure what backported means.

What are Backports
When Ubuntu releases a new version of its OS every 6 months, that release is largely frozen in time. While the software that is part of that release will get bug fixes and security patches, new major releases of software and the new features that come with them will not be available.

That’s where Ubuntu Backports comes in. Backports offers a way to selectively provide newer versions of software for older Ubuntu releases. Most commonly, the Backports team will provide new versions of standalone applications which can be safely updated without impacting the rest of the system.

Doesn't look like there's a trusty backport: http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?suite ... acs%2024.5

Oh well.. At least I didn't mess up my system by trying something stupid.
