    How To Install All Available Packages

    Hello,

    i want a command to download & install all available applications in Ubuntu

    also is there a command to download & install only a category like accessories only or games only?

    is there a way to not install the duplicates packages?

    and is there a command like --skip-broken?

    Thanks in advance

    Could you be more specific because there are over 30,000 applications both free and not free in the software center and that would require a lot of free space.

    This is what I found when looking for information on batch installation from the software center. http://brainstorm.ubuntu.com/idea/28954/

    Why?

    This seems to me like a sure-fire way to make your system grind to a halt!
