Amahi On Ubuntu: Must-Have Extras For Your Linux Home Server

A few weeks ago I went through the process of setting up a home server using an old computer, a copy of Ubuntu and Amahi, a free home server that comes with its own repository of extras. Loosely referred to as an “app store” by some, once you’ve set up Amahi, it’s easy to add additional services to your server in just a couple of clicks. If you’ve just installed your home server or are looking for Ubuntu-specific additions then this article is for you.
