What to do after a fresh Ubuntu install? Just run this script!
The main purpose of this script is to speed up configuring Ubuntu 10.04 immediately after you\'ve just installed it. This includes both installing popular applications and codecs as well as fixing some annoyances in Ubuntu 10.04.
You can search for each package in Synaptic or Ubuntu Software Center and manually install it. But then you\'ll also need to go to the Skype website and manually download and install it (Skype is no longer available in the Medibuntu repository), the same for Google Chrome, and so on. You can also use Ubuntu Tweak for some tweaks (but only a few of the tweaks in this script). But this script combines the most popular tweaks which are not available in a single application with installing common packages which almost everyone uses, so the time spent configuring Ubuntu 10.04 is decreased dramatically.
The script should also help new Ubuntu users since the script configures lots of things without any input from the user (such as automounting NTFS drives on startup and so on).
The script supports multiple languages: Czech, Spanish, French, German, Slovak, Italian, Polish, Japanese, Dutch, Portuguese (PT), Malaysian, Galician, Korean, Turkish, Brazilian Portuguese, Catalan, Estonian, Simplified Chinese, Bahasa Indonesia, Asturian, Romanian, Arabic, Swedish, Slovenian, Traditional Chinese, Vietnamese, Urdu, Danish, Latvian, Russian, Norwegian and Lithuanian.
The scripts needs Zenity, so make sure you install it before running the script:
