As a learning excerise, I have installed Ubuntu (from scratch) using the alternate install CD and then building on top of that. Installing an xserver, a display manager, a window manager etc. I've learned a lot.
I now have Ubuntu 12.04, an xserver and the gnome-core desktop (which includes GDM and a whole host of other core stuff). I've installed a theme and so on and so forth, and it's looking pretty good. Rather pleased with myself lol
But.... I have no home folders. I have the directory /home/myname but I don't have /home/myname/Documents, /home/myname/Pictures etc. You know the ones, with the emblems on them.
What have I missed out ?
