I am currently developing a shell script program which help new Ubuntu users to install various applications that does not available through Ubuntu repository. I called this tiny program as Gamblisfx and its now in version 2.0. On this version, I use “dialog” to provide easier menu to select app to install.
The following applications can be installed via Gamblisfx:
- Google Chrome
- Multimedia Codecs
- Oracle Java
- Flash Plugin
Simply execute Gamblisfx via Terminal and then select application using keyboard arrow and press Enter to start installing selected application. I am currently planning to use YAD or Zenity on the next release. Try this Application Installer for your Ubuntu 14.04, Linux Lite 2.0, Xubuntu 14.04, Elementary OS Luna, Elementary OS Freya, and all Ubuntu derivatives.
Next open Terminal and paste these commands to move the script to /opt and create link to /usr/bin
chmod +x gamblisfx-2.0.sh
sudo mv gamblisfx-2.0.sh /opt
sudo ln -s /opt/gamblisfx-2.0.sh /usr/bin/gamblisfx
To run this script simply type this command on Terminal
If you want you can create shortcut for this script to your Application menu or Dash.
