This short guide describes how you can configure your GNOME desktop to display various icons such as My Computer, Network Servers, Trash, etc. on the desktop. By default, these items are placed on one of the panels (Trash) or hidden in the Places menu. Having these icons on the desktop is useful if you switch from a Windows desktop to a GNOME desktop and are used to having them on the desktop.
Many so-called podcatchers have shown up to help users download podcasts on request. Most of them are great applications, but what do you do when you want all of your podcasts downloaded automatically and synced to your MP3 player? I used to use Monopod to download podcasts and then move them to my MP3 player by hand -- until I found podget. Using podget, cron, and some shell scripts, I was able to automate the whole process, saving myself 10 minutes and unneeded hassle every day.

This article is intended to help new users save a lot of the time and trouble that I have gone through.

Ubuntu does not offer DVDs ready to download with its main, universe, multiverse and/or restricted repositories. With the contents of this guide you can do it yourself. Having the Ubuntu or Debian repositories on DVD can be useful for those users who do not have access to the internet where they have their Ubuntu installed but have access somewhere else to download the repository and build and burn the DVDs.
