Installing postgis 2.x as extension on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

This is the procedure that I follow to implement postgis (vers.2.0) as extension:

  1. Installation of the  postgis 2.x packages  from the Ubuntu official repository;
  2. creation of a new fresh postgreSQL database “mydb” without any postgis function;
  3. creation  of the extension with pgAdminIII:
