Essential Linux Software

Recommended Posts



So here I am trying to install Ubuntu.

Doesnt work, but when I get it to work I will need essential linux apps I guess.


So what is the most essential stuff you use on linux?


Im a totally newbie when it comes to linux, so any advices on good software will be highly appreciative =)

My top five most used apps not already include in a default install of Ubuntu:


1. Thunderbird - mozilla email client

2. Amarock - Music management software (default in Kubuntu)

3. Pan - Usenet reader

4. GoogleEarth

5. Conky - Desktop system monitor


Other than these a few others most everything you'll need is already available for a noob. As you get deeper into linux that of course will change.
