View Full Version : [ubuntu] Downloading applications for future install

November 4th, 2010, 03:45 PM
I'm going round everyone I know installing Ubuntu on their computers.....whether they like it or not, and I must say so far they all like it except...............

I have to spend 5 hours downloading and installing all the software they need to make their system run 'as good as windows'.

I really need a whole bunch of popular programmes to put on a disk and install as I go. I know Ubuntu saves the downloads in a repository on the hard drive, but looking at it I am sometimes at a loss as to which folders contain which downloads, then there is the problem of multiple folders for one programme etc.

Can anyone help me find a way to do this, or point me in the direction of a zipped up file with all the programmes a normal user might need.
