Must have Apps in my Ubuntu 9.04 (64bit)

There are two main categories for these applications. Those that you can install from the System -> Administration -> Synaptic Package Manager, and those you can’t.

Synaptic Package Manager

* GIMP
* Inkscape
* FileZilla FTP Client
* Amarok
* Audacity
* Wine
* VLC
* PulseAudio Volume Control (pavucontrol)
* Vuze (w/ RSS Downloader Plugin)

(Then to get the best of studio I also install)

* ubuntustudio-audio-plugins
* ubuntustudio-video
* ubuntustudio-audio
* ubuntustudio-graphics
* ubuntustudio-controls

From Website

* Picasa - http://picasa.google.com/linux/
* Truecrypt - http://www.truecrypt.org/

More Complex

* Gnome Do (Look here for complete tutorial)

In a terminal write (Cut and paste entire section):

gpg --no-default-keyring --keyring /tmp/gnome-do.keyring --keyserver
keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv A5D19FDCAA6ABB440CD3464628A8205077558DD0
gpg --no-default-keyring --keyring /tmp/gnome-do.keyring --export --armor
A5D19FDCAA6ABB440CD3464628A8205077558DD0 | sudo apt-key add -
rm /tmp/gnome-do.keyring

sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

Add following lines to Sources List then save

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/do-core/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/do-core/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main
sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude install gnome-do

When you run Gnome-Do for the first time, I suggest you change to preferences to take advantage of the “Docky” theme, and add in what plugins you see fit.
* Ubuntu Tweak (Look here for complete tutorial)

In a terminal write:

sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com
FE85409EEAB40ECCB65740816AF0E1940624A220
sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list


Add following lines to Sources List then save

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/tualatrix/ubuntu jaunty main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/tualatrix/ubuntu jaunty main

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-tweak
