Score 64%

These scripts are made to run on Ubuntu 9.04.

There are three scripts:

1 - Codecs Ubuntu script: this script will install the most important codecs to run all video and sound common files, zip files, flash and java plugins.

2 - Firefox 3.5 & Firefox 3.6 Ubuntu 9.04 script installer: this one will install the Firefox 3.5 and Firefox 3.6.

3 - OpenOffice 3.1.1 Ubuntu 9.04 script installer: will install the lastes OpenOffice 3.1.1 version

INSTALL: to install open a terminal, go to the folder where you saved the file, and do

. name_of_script

For example, if you saved the codecs script in desktop folder, open a terminal and do

cd ~/Desktop
. codecs_ubuntu_IMG.sh

Note that there's a space between dot (.) and the name of the script

So, I hope that it help you.

Yeah, you are right. I was just trying to help people that was using Ubuntu 9.04 or older version, maybe not sucessfully. I made it because I lost a lot of hours trying to install that codecs and programs. I was looking around lots of forums, and made this scripts to make the noobs life, like mine, more easy. :(
Sorry for my mistakes.

oh oh

no english, installing stuff like java usually should not be forced with --yes. someone could have customized his jre installation.

if ya unskilled with bashing and scripting, better do not just run it without have a look inside ;)

anyone else doesn't need this. It just installes apps you will already have.

to have codecs installed use:

sudo apt-get -m install libxvidcore4 gstreamer0.10-plugins-base gstreamer0.10-plugins-good gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly-multiverse gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad-multiverse gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg gstreamer0.10-pitfdll
