Description:

What to do after a fresh Ubuntu install? Just run this script!

The main purpose of this script is to speed up configuring Ubuntu 10.04 immediately after you\'ve just installed it. This includes both installing popular applications and codecs as well as fixing some annoyances in Ubuntu 10.04.


You can search for each package in Synaptic or Ubuntu Software Center and manually install it. But then you\'ll also need to go to the Skype website and manually download and install it (Skype is no longer available in the Medibuntu repository), the same for Google Chrome, and so on. You can also use Ubuntu Tweak for some tweaks (but only a few of the tweaks in this script). But this script combines the most popular tweaks which are not available in a single application with installing common packages which almost everyone uses, so the time spent configuring Ubuntu 10.04 is decreased dramatically.

The script should also help new Ubuntu users since the script configures lots of things without any input from the user (such as automounting NTFS drives on startup and so on).

The script supports multiple languages: Czech, Spanish, French, German, Slovak, Italian, Polish, Japanese, Dutch, Portuguese (PT), Malaysian, Galician, Korean, Turkish, Brazilian Portuguese, Catalan, Estonian, Simplified Chinese, Bahasa Indonesia, Asturian, Romanian, Arabic, Swedish, Slovenian, Traditional Chinese, Vietnamese, Urdu, Danish, Latvian, Russian, Norwegian and Lithuanian.

The scripts needs Zenity, so make sure you install it before running the script:

 Before Posting Stuffs..

Before posting stuff you can consider the idea of fixing them first.

How does the second part works?
Do those checks really mean something or not?
Do they check if the program is already installed?

More over, repos, programs and some of the features of the first part are already present in Ubuntu Tweak and in Ailurus isn't that enough?

No it doesn't check if an app is installed or not because if it's installed already it can't do any harm.

But if you don't like the script, never mind, it's not for you, it's for everybody else :) as some people appreciate someone else's work (weird, ha?)

Maybe you can use my comment in a constructive way, as it was meant to be, and not just as a bad note.

You MUST check your scripts before releasing them, in some case it can harm.
However, if you just like to publish non-checked stuffs, you're welcome, if not, you can ask for directions (not necessary to me).

The tone wasn't exactly constructive.

Here are reasons not to make a check for installed applications:

1. The script is called Ubuntu Start and it's meant to be ran when you first install Ubuntu so if you already installed those apps, you wouldn't need the script

2. There's no harm done if installing an application already installed

3. I had other stuff to do right now, I worked all night to release the new version in time for Ubuntu 10.04. So did the people who translated it (to 15 languages now I believe) - they all translated it in the last 24 hours which I find it to be simply amazing!

I did use checks for some important stuff like automount ntfs drives.


About Ailurus and Ubuntu Tweak: sure, you can use those and a couple more applications and Synaptic or a terminal to do all this. But that's a lot of applications and operations and TIME (which is why the script was designed - to reduce the time to do all these) which can be replaced by this script. Sure, you can use those later on, but this script would set up almost everything (based on common operations people do when they first install Ubuntu)

And finally, actually 90% of the features in this script are based on suggestions received in comments on my blog, so I do listen to all suggestions.

At least you can include working project:

http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Bs-ubuntu?content=123966&PHPSESSID=defc90bef63e3bc33740a7cd33be92b6

http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Change+Window+Buttons?content=123360

However the calendar part is useless (and caused to some users some problems).
New version of lucid are fixed for that "problem" (that is caused by a bad installation of the languages (if it is so))

 Script Corrections

 
 by TheWiseDj on: May 6 2010
 
Score 50%

I'm reading your script, while doing this, I'm posting some "errors" I'm dealing with.

For the language choice:

var="$(zenity --list --hide-column=1 --column=HIDE --column=Language "en" "English" "it" "Italian" .... "wt" "Whatever")"
..
YOURLANG="languages/$var.pot"

You'll save a lot of stuffs, and, moreover, why would you search in a radiolist for MORE items???
