First of all : Great idea to automize that post-installation stuff.
But I have two suggestions to make:
- Wouldn't it be more comfortable if the code determines Ubuntu-version and installed architecture itself. As far as I know at least "uname -m" delivers the architecture. And the file /etc/lsbrelease contains information about the installed Ubuntu-version.
- After launching the script, I am not able to cancel anymore, unless I give it the correct root PW. Only kill can solve this (not even xkill).

Greetings,
Thomas

Thank you for the suggestions.

Now I'm working on the 3.0 version, which will not have these bugs and will let you choose what to install.

why did you host it there, if you have to wait 50 seconds, when you can just upload it directly on gnome-look.

The reason is quite simple:
1)This way I can keep accurate download records(to know if a project should be maintained or not)
2)When you reach the determined amount of points, that you got some cash.This cash will be sent to the Ubuntu staff as a donation.

The sh files and the folder they are in even says 10.10.2, so just out of curiosity, is the download the up-to-date version?

I'm glad to hear that.
If you have any suggestion, just write it down.
At the moment I'm taking in consideration to add some extra repos and applications, which are considered part of the multimedia category.

I was thinking to add:
-Wine
-alien
-Soundconverter
-Avidemux(Many user don't like Pitivi as their video editor)
-Clipgrad(Video downloader and converter)

Nice work, but you also might wanna look at Super OS @ hacktolive.org. ;)

Thank you.
I'll tell you:I and some friend of mine are taking in consideration the possiblity to add some applications:Avidemux(Video converter), Soundconverter(Utility which allows you to convert audio files into multiple devices(Very useful when extracting file from a cd and converting them to mp3(to store them on disk) and clipgrab which allows you to download and convert video from sites(Pytube's antagonist).

The problem is the following:Not everyone needs/knows how to use these kind of application, so I am not sure if is a good idea to add them.
Another problem is that people doesn't report a bug(if present) so I am not able to fix it quickly)
What do you think about it?
I'm not sure that I understood where to take a look.

I think that you should make your script use zenity dialogs, since ubuntu comes with it by default, and make check-list where user can pick what to and what not to install. If you need any help with it, just contact me or you might want to take a look @ my script (link is in signature ;)).

Also, I was talking about this site:

http://hacktolive.org/wiki/Super_OS

Read a bit about it. I'm using it for about two yrs now. ;)

Well, this won't be a bad idea.
There is just a problem:I must first understand how zenity works, especially how to write the executive code.I've tried to do it, but with really bad results.

You mean add execute right to a file(s)? Use this command:

chmod 777

That should do it. And as far as Zenity concerns, use this commands to get a tip:

zenity --help

man zenity

I'm happy to hear that.
The only thing I'm really not proud of is the fact, that I had to update the cose so many times.

But I don't care, couse now it works in a great way.Just hope other users will post or send messages, so I'll be able to develop the code to offer a better quality.

Nothing.I just hate to waste my time and nervs by configuring/installing this kind of stuff after a fresh install of Ubuntu.So after so many installations, I decided to write this script and to post it(To let other users avoid this kind of situation and to make the configuration of Ubuntu easier to newbies ).
