Wow. You'll ditch Firefox for Epiphany. Hehe. I'm wondering why. I would be more understandable if you'll replace it with Opera.

As for apps:

Xchat IRC
Emesene MSN via SVN
Deluge torrent from official site, not the old repo version

Multimedia:
VLC player
Gnomad 2
Streamtuner
Xfburn
Gnome-mplayer

Graphics:
Gimmage from site as it's not in the repos
The Gimp

Accessories:
DOSbox
XArchiver
Galculator

That's pretty much all the important bits.

I usually always add these. There are more, but this short list comes to mind without much thought. Amarok would be on there as well except this time I'm giving Kubuntu Ibex a spin, so its already there for me,

NVidia driver (latest)
sysvconfig
PostgreSQL
pg-admin
streamtuner
audacious
jack
rosegarden

i'd do a command line installation and add...

screen
dvtm
mc
cplay
streamripper
htop
elinks
cdcd

then, i'd add X and the following...

opera
gimp
gcolor2
mplayer
urxvt
dwm
dmenu
scrot

i'm perfectly happy with nano, so i'd just use that for any editing.

'Nuff said.

Mint Elyssa. The new X killed graphics acceleration capabilities for my nVidia card, because there are no longer drivers that will work. Tried and newer ATI card I had and though the drivers took, it didn't work either. So, for me 8.10 was a downgrade. Second update I have done over the short few years with Ubuntu that has made things worse for me rather than better. Course it is not the only distro that has had new releases that killed things for people. Oh well, may be less of a fanboy these days.

Why use a script when you can just put it in one big command with && and select, middle click it in the terminal?

I'm sure it's easier and faster for people to do that than to open the script from the terminal.

But using a script sounds more "tech savvy", doesn't it?

:p

I should probably clarify this: I use Kubuntu Intrepid Ibex, not ubuntu to make this list make more sense.

Firefox (Konqueror is much too slow and bloated for my tastes. Btw, synaptic and ubuntu software sources installed themselves along with FireFox on Intrepid, has anyone else noticed this?)
Gimp
Inkscape
The Mana World (tmw as it is known by the *buntu repositories)
Thunderbird
IDLE v2.5 (<3)
GParted
Irssi (Let's put it this way, you couldn't PAY ME to use konversation)

Here's the code if you guys want to install these:



sudo apt-get install gimp firefox thunderbird gparted irssi idle inkscape tmw

First time I've heard this one.

I will admit, it is a strange comment, but try loading a web page in Konqueror and then in FireFox, you will see quite the speed difference in FireFox's favor.
