As you may know, Ubuntu After Install is an app created by the Faenza developers, which enables the users to install codecs, plugins and other apps with a few clicks only, from a simple GUI.
It provides a list of available software and all the user has to do is tick the packages he wants to install and press Install Now. Among others, it installs the Ubuntu Restricrterd Extras, Unity Tweak Tool, Faenza Icon theme, Google Chrome, Kdenlive, LibreOffice, Dropbox, VLC, Gimp, Darktable, FileZilla, Kdenlive, Handbrake, OpenShot, Scribus, Skype, Shutter and Steam.
The latest version available is Ubuntu After Install 2.6 Beta, which has been recently released, bringing changes and enhancements.
The software is good to install the needed software after a fresh Ubuntu installation.
Up to date packages are available via the developer’s PPA, so installing the software on Ubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet, Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Linux Mint 17.2 Rafaela, Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Pinguy OS 14.04, Elementary OS 0.3 Freya, Deepin 2014, Peppermint 6, Peppermint 5, LXLE 14.04 and Linux Lite 2 systems is piece of cake.
