Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr has been recently released, in all the traditional flavors. The easiest way to install all the popular software on it is to use the Ubuntu After Install app created by the Faenza developers, which enables the users to 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, which has been recently released, coming with fixes for the Ubuntu 15.04 splash screen display issue.
