Automated installation a lot of useful extra software on Ubuntu after the initial desktop install.
This program installs a collection of some of the best Ubuntu software and can be considered to be one of the top things to do after installing Ubuntu.
Selecting and Installing all the extra software on a new Ubuntu computer can be time consuming. I wanted to automate the process on new machines as well as simplify the installation for new users.
Using Ubuntu After Install
- Start the application from the dash by searching for Ubuntu After Install.
- Follow the on screen instructions.
- Select the software you would like to install and click Install Now to begin.
- Once you have started the install process be very patient as the installation will take a while to complete.
- Once an application has been installed successfully it will be marked with green dot as shown below.
- If there is a problem with the install of an application, or if it is not available for your version of Ubuntu it will be marked with a red dot.
- It is not a good idea to stop or interrupt the install process once it has begun.
- Software that has already been installed will not be selected by default, but you can select these items to re-install or upgrade the software to the latest versions.
- Software marked with an orange dot will be re-installed / upgraded.
