Upgrade to 64 bit Goosebuntu (9.04 & 9.10)(Jaunty & Karmic)

KDE 4 logo

This is a relatively quick and very effective way to beef up your (K)Ubuntu installation. In other words, it’s how to install all your favorite Ubuntu apps all in one go!

Basically the list below contains most of my favouirite (K)Ubuntu applications complete with their code libraries. The name “Goosebuntu” is not entirely serious – it is just a name we coined in the office. However, the following apps will turn a standard (K)Ubuntu installation into something really rather special. If the application is already installed, then no matter, the system will just ignore that application. Also please remember that these are my favourite applications. They may not be yours! Though it is pretty easy to remove the ones you don’t like by typing in a terminal:-

sudo apt-get remove [undesired apps]

Where [undesired apps] is a list of the applications you no longer require.

Applications from normal repositories

This assumes you have all the usual repositories enabled, that is the main, restricted, multiverse and universe repositories for your particular version (e.g jaunty, karmic) of Kubuntu. This is probably easiest done in a package manager such as Adept or Synaptic.

You also can use a package manager to select and install these applications. However this is an example of where using the Linux Terminal could actually be quicker. To make things easier for you, I have listed the files in a format that can easily be copied and pasted to your Termanal window for installation.

To use the clipboard commands (copy & paste) in a Terminal, right click in the Terminal Window and select the command from the popup menu. If you copy and paste my lists then please make sure the list includes the install command “apt-get install” together with “sudo” –  the command that makes you the “root user” temporarily. I.E.. the part that reads.”sudo apt-get install
