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.
Get some Ubuntu AppIndicators
Every Unity user needs some AppIndicators – the tiny icons that sit on the top panel, next to the clock. Below you’ll find 3 such AppIndicators, two which add some missing functionality to the desktop and one for some eyecandy.
1. My Weather Indicator
Probably my favorite indicator, “My Weather Indicator” displays the current weather on the Unity panel. From the Indicator menu, you can see a weather forecast and more. The application even supports adding desktop weather widgets.
To install it in Ubuntu 16.04, you’ll need to use a PPA. Add the PPA and install My Weather Indicator using the following commands:
<code>sudo add-apt-repository ppa:atareao/atareao
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install my-weather-indicator</code>
Caffeine is a tool used to temporarily prevent the activation of the screensaver / lock screen / sleep mode, when using full-screen windows. The application is useful if you’re using a video player that doesn’t do this automatically, when listening to music, etc.
To install it in Ubuntu 16.04, click the button below:
Or install it from the command line, using:
<code>sudo apt-get install caffeine</code>
Note: After the installation, the command-line version of Caffeine is set to start automatically on login. If you want the indicator to start automatically, you’ll have to add “caffeine-indicator” to your startup applications.
