Linux Setup Notes

Ubuntu 18.04

dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration

This should also work for the tty, not just X.

sudo apt install printer-driver-cups-pdf

Mounting NTFS drives: the recommended setup in /etc/fstab
/dev/disk/by-label/WINDOWS /mountpoint ntfs noatime,uid=1000,gid=1000,dmask=027,fmask=137
dmask and fmask set file permission defaults to drwxr-x—
noatime can prevent disk thrashing

Set RTC to local timezone because Windows likes it that way
timedatectl set-local-rtc 1 --adjust-system-clock
