2. Install VirtualBox Guest Additions on Ubuntu Studio 20.10

Ubuntu is one of the most versatile and popular Linux distributions for its simplicity of use, great options for compatibility and scalability of applications, security and much more, what many did not know (until today), is that Ubuntu has developed a special segment called flavors which are distributions based on Ubuntu but with a specific focus, one of these is Ubuntu Studio. Ubuntu Studio is still a free and open source operating system, being an official version of Ubuntu so we should not worry about support or something similar..

 

Ubuntu Studio has been developed as a multimedia-oriented operating system, thus avoiding the local installation of various popular programs , which is why it already has a selection of multimedia applications pre-installed in audio, graphics, video, photography and publication segments and directing resources the system so that these applications perform in the best possible way.

 

 

Audio Ubuntu Studio
At the audio level Ubuntu Studio offers us recording, mixing, mastering, live processing and encoding applications with applications such as:

 

  • Carla
  • Ardor
  • JACK
  • Synth and sequence applications such as Audacity Audio Wave Editor, Qtractor - midi capable DAW, Hydrogen - Drum machine / Sequencer, Yoshimi - Software Synthesizer.
  • Virtual Guitar Amps

 

Graphics Ubuntu Studio
At the graphics level, we find graphic design and modeling applications in programs such as:

 

  • Blender
  • Inkscape
  • Gim
  • Pikopixel

 

 

Ubuntu Studio Applications
In the advertising area we find some pre-installed applications and many more available to install from the repository in the Software Center, in this case we will find in Ubuntu Studio:

 

  • Free Office

  • Scribus

 

 

Photography Ubuntu Studio
For photography lovers, Ubuntu Studio has some applications for managing these, such as:

 

  • Darktable

Ubuntu Studio video
One of the most desired areas is video in all its forms, creation and editing, for this reason in Ubuntu Studio we find apps for 3D modeling, animation, composition and more such as:
  • Openshot

Without further ado, we are going to see how to install Ubuntu Studio and for this we will do it in VirtualBox which is one of the best known applications for virtualization issues, this prevents the real system from being affected, but we are able to get the most out of it.
