Checklist for fresh Ubuntu installs

Filed under

Each time I (re)install Ubuntu on my laptop or home PC or on a friend’s laptop, I always forget some or the other software which I have to download at a later date. This is sometimes troublesome if I don’t have net working at my home and take the laptop to a wired workplace to download the packages. Here are the packages which I usually download and you would always find it as a part.


* Adobe Integrated Runtime (proprietary)
* Java 6 (free)


* Twhirl (proprietary)
* Terminator (free)
* xChm (free)
* Inkscape (free)
* TweetDeck (?)
* K3B (free)
* Scribus (free)
