Automatically Install Security Updates and Patches in Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal.

This article describes how to enable Ubuntu to automatically install security patches and updates without confirmation. For most Windows users, critical updates are automatically installed on their computers to fix security vulnerabilities. 

After the installation, they’re then alerted to restart their computers so the patches can be applied. Ubuntu can also be configured that way. 

Setting started:

To get started, click ‘Power –> System Settings’

natty_updates

Then select ‘System –> Update Manager’

natty_updates_1

Next, click ‘Settings’



natty_updates_2

And finally, choose ‘Install security updates without confirmation’ and close out.

PulseAudio Client Libraries (zeroconf support):


PulseAudio, previously known as Polypaudio, is a sound server for POSIX and WIN32 systems. It is a drop in replacement for the ESD sound server with much better latency, mixing/re-sampling quality and overall architecture.
Client libraries used by applications that access a PulseAudio sound server via PulseAudio's native interface.


This package adds support for zeroconf (aka. Avahi, mdns) discovery of PulseAudio sinks and sources by client applications.



  * Fix missing Internal/Front/Rear mics on Nvidia chipsets (LP: #771739)



PulseAudio Client Libraries (Glib support):


PulseAudio, previously known as Polypaudio, is a sound server for POSIX and WIN32 systems. It is a drop in replacement for the ESD sound server with much better latency, mixing/re-sampling quality and overall architecture.
Client libraries used by applications that access a PulseAudio sound server via PulseAudio's native interface.


This package adds support for glib2 client applications.



PulseAudio Sound Server:

PulseAudio, previously known as Polypaudio, is a sound server for POSIX and WIN32 systems. It is a drop in replacement for the ESD sound server with much better latency, mixing/re-sampling quality and overall architecture.
These are some of PulseAudio's features:
* High quality software mixing of multiple audio streams with support for
more than one sink/source. May be used to combine multiple sound cards
into one (with sample rate adjustment).
* Wide range of supported client libraries. ESD, ALSA, oss, libao and
GStreamer client applications are supported as-is. Native PulseAudio
plug-ins are also available for xmms and mplayer.
* Good low latency behaviour and very accurate latency measurement for
playback and recording. Ability to fully synchronize multiple playback
streams.
* Network transparency, allowing an application to play back or record
audio on a different machine than the one it is running on.
* Extensible plug-in architecture with plug-ins for jackd, multicast-rtp
lirc and avahi, just to name a few. This package contains the daemon and basic module set.




  * Fix missing Internal/Front/Rear mics on Nvidia chipsets (LP: #771739)



Bluetooh module for PulseAudio Sound Server:


PulseAudio, previously known as Polypaudio, is a sound server for POSIX and WIN32 systems. It is a drop in replacement for the ESD sound server with much better latency, mixing/re-sampling quality and overall architecture.
This module enables PulseAudio to work with bluetooth devices, like headset or audio gateway.
The module is called module-bluetooth

Utility for browsing, installing and removing applications:


The Ubuntu Software Center lets you browse and install thousands of applications available for Ubuntu. You can view available applications by category, or search quickly by name or description. You can also examine the applications already installed, and remove those you no longer need.

To install or remove software using the Center, you need administrator access on the computer.
