1) Install Ubuntu After Install PPA

Ubuntu After Install PPA will help us to install (Hassle Free Software installation).

[Ubuntu After Install PPA]
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:thefanclub/ubuntu-after-install
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-after-install

$ wget https://www.thefanclub.co.za/sites/default/files/public/downloads/ubuntu-after-install_2.7_all.deb
$ sudo dpkg -i ubuntu-after-install_2.7_all.deb

2) Launch Ubuntu After Install

Start the application from the dash by searching for Ubuntu After Install. And wait few seconds to launch the GUI.

By default all the software Check Box was selected except existing installed application. In my case Ubuntu tweak tool & Numix Circle Icon already installed that’s why its showing Green Color button. Problem application (if it is not available for your version of Ubuntu) will be marked with a Red Color button.

For testing purpose, I’m going to install Ubuntu Restricted Extras, So i have Unchecked rest of the Application box, Then hit Install Now button to begin the installation. For Fresh system you can install all the App’s which is necessary for routine activity. Once you have started the install process be very patient as the installation will take a while to complete.

Finally hit Done button to exit the app.

After the application successful installation will be marked Green Color button like below.

New users can Tweak the Ubuntu easily with single click.

  1. I was hopeful that this would work under Linux Mint 17.3, alas no.
    But it still looks useful for straight Ubuntu.
