Top 11-20 Ubuntu applications
You can find the first part here.
11. Avidemux – Easy to use video editing software.
12. Audacious – Music player based on XMMS that looks like Winamp, uses Winamp skins and has a lot of plugins available.
sudo apt-get install audacious
13. Exaile – Music player that suppose to be similar to KDE’s Amarok, but for GTK+ and written in Python. I can’t make up my mind if i should use Audacious or Exaile, so i put them both here
sudo apt-get install exaile
14. gtk – RecordMyDesktop – Records your desktop and saves it, so you can post it to youtube or whatever.
sudo apt-get install gtk-recordmydesktop
15. Envy – Auto install nvidia and ati drivers for Ubuntu.
Get it from here.
16. Ubuntu Tweak – Some tweaks for Ubuntu, like making the drives not show up on your desktop.
17. Yakuake – Terminal window that drops down, Quake-style, when you press a key.
18. BootUp-Manager – Choose what stars when you boot up into Ubuntu.
sudo apt-get install bum
19. Conky – Desktop app that posts system monitoring info onto the desktop of your Ubuntu.
sudo apt-get install conky
To configure it, make a configuration file in your home directory (Ex:-/home/ubuntuadmin)
And paste config file you like from here (you can also find some screen-shots there).
To make it start with your system, and also make it integrate well, you’ll need to make a delay startup. You can create a file called .conky-startup.sh and paste this into it:
sleep 15 && conky ;
then run in terminal: chmod +x .conky-startup.sh
after that, in System > Preferences > Session: Startup programs, click add and browse for .conky-startup.sh , add it and that’s it.
Here is a screenshot of my conky :
20. msttcorefonts – this is not a piece of software, but a tutorial to make fonts in Ubuntu antialiased, like in Windows.
You cand find all the fonts and other stuff needed and the tutorial here.
Note: to be able to install, you need to make sure that you have a “universe” and “multiuniverse” mirror in your /etc/apt/sources.list (after that, to install most software you just need to type in the command).
