The Ubuntu team is very pleased to announce our fifth long-term support release, Ubuntu 14.04 LTS for Desktop, Server, Cloud, and Core, as well as Ubuntu 14.04 for Phone and Tablet products.
On OMG! Ubuntu! i found an article to add a progress bar to the terminal window.
The progress bar will only work when using the apt command this means that all the apt-get commands need to be replaced with just apt. So a sudo apt-get install won’t show the progress bar but a sudo apt install will show the progress bar.
I myself am not a big fan of the white dots shown on the login screen. If you’re just like me and want to remove the white dots…. here is how you do it.
