    What's aprogram that every ubuntu user should have installed?

    Just started using ubuntu more frequently and wanted to know what programs I should install to enhance my ubuntu experience?

    I'll second synaptic.

    Depending on your version of *buntu, if using Ubuntu with Unity I reckon MyUnity is a great app.
    With the others I'm not too sure. With Kubuntu the only essential app I install first up is the restricted extras followed by firefox

    It will be completely dependent on what you want to, or have to do using your computer.

    Nevertheless I would go along with synaptic as the most necessary for me as it is the best package manager of all of them available for the ubuntu family of OSs.

    My list is rather proprietary in nature.

    Google Chrome (Always up to date flash)
    VLC -It's like the swiss army knife of video players.
    GColor2- If you're a theme tweaker, this is a given. If you want to change the terminal color, use this tool.
