Ubuntu 9.10 Quick Setup Script

This is for my own purpose, to make it easy to set up Ubuntu next time. All the software I use every day, in a nice easy-to-copy-and-paste install script.

— set up the repositories
sudo wget http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/$(lsb_release -cs).list –output-document=/etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list
sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude install medibuntu-keyring && sudo aptitude update
sudo update-apt-xapian-index

— multimedia stuff and firefox plugins
sudo aptitude install flashplugin-nonfree dvdrip ttf-mscorefonts-installer gtkpod-aac mplayer mozilla-mplayer xchat-gnome helix-player mozilla-helix-player acroread non-free-codecs ubuntu-restricted-extras libdvdcss2 skype vlc vlc-plugin-pulse gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad-multiverse gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly-multiverse gstreamer0.10-alsa gstreamer0.10-plugins-base gstreamer0.10-plugins-base-apps sun-java6-bin sun-java6-fonts sun-java6-jdk sun-java6-jre sun-java6-plugin flashplugin-nonfree-extrasound

— my favorite every-day-use software
sudo aptitude install vim mc psi qca-tls xchat gqview mtpaint htop powertop gftp
