How To Use Packages

So, I’ve finally gotten out of summer mode long enough to get the next podcast put together. You can listen or download this episode here.

Inside the podcast I talk about a new package that I have been using lately and some interesting news worthy of inclusion and then I talk about some of the packages that they should include in a plain vanilla installation of ubuntu.

Now I realize that it is easy enough to download these yourself, but if you are a new to linux user you may not know what to do outside of turning on your browser. I found out the hard way that these programs do indeed give a level of comfort and convenience in my day-to-day routine. Also, even though a plain vanilla installation of Ubuntu gives you almost everything you need to get started, it doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll get started in the right direction.

I have left out Automatix on purpose because I am not the biggest fan of Automatix, yet, I must confess I use it! Why the dichotomy? I use it because it is so easy. Just point and click on the packages that allows you to do what you want and press install. On the other hand, if you have been using Ubuntu for awhile then you also know that all of the packages that Automatix offers are easily downloadable througSo, I’ve finally gotten out of summer mode long enough to get the next podcast put together.

So, I praise Automatix for its ease of use but lament it because it shows my human weaknesses. Plus, Automatix gets plenty of press so I chose to leave it out, sorry guys.
