Script: Auto-install add-ons for XubuntuSeptember 1, 2006 at 3:59 pm | Posted in scripts, xubuntu | 9 Comments
Here you have it.
This script will install everything for you: Beep-Media-Player, a Beep-Media-Player skin, aMSN, an aMSN skin, fix the CD-ROM eject problem, auto-install autologin, install IceWM, remove the system beep, install codecs, install special settings, install prelink/preload, install Flash/Java, install Ivman, set up giFT, install fonts, install extra archive support, install search with Thunar, install Opera and set it up with Xubuntu, install dash, update Xarchiver….if it can be done, it’s done. Things I’m missing are original Firefox and Thunderbird icons, extra Beep-Media-Player plugins, and perhaps tweaking xorg.conf, adding Xarchiver thunar-archive-plugin support and stopping Thunar from loading twice.
It is strongly recommended to run this after a fresh installation, some things may not work as intended otherwise. You might want to remove some options (e.g. install OpenOffice or gnome-games) beforehand.
I have no guarantee that this will work on your system!!! USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!
*ahem* Let’s get to the fun stuff. Here’s how to install it:
chmod +x ./install-all.sh
• You’ll have to manually add menu entries to IceWM with iceme. While a good selection of apps are listed there, I can’t include every program in the menu.
• If something goes wrong during installation, you may need to edit the code to repair it. (remove any line beginning with if, else, and fi.) You may also have to remove files in
• I understand loading IceWM isn’t everybody’s cup of tea; just replace
If you find any more bugs, please let me know!
