Linux Mint (http://www.linuxmint.com/index.php) is designed specifically for that, I believe.

It is illegal for them to put them on the disc. If you do want full MP3 and Dvd support, you can get Linux Mint, which has the codecs pre-installed, and it is based on Ubuntu. http://www.linuxmint.com

Looks like you need to download Mint at the cyber cafe. You can then burn it there or transfer it to a stick to take home to burn. If you have Ubuntu at home it might have better burning utilities that the cyber cafe. I have read that you can download updates and packages also and take them to your computer. I don't know how but you can research that and ask if you have any questions.

you can download, all codecs and its deps or anything else to your usb drive at internet cafe, and install it to your ubuntu.
